I guess the subject line says it all. We would like to have an early dinner (around 6:30) for four people, at a not expensive but delicious, casual and comfortable French restaurant on Christmas Eve. One of the party has to go to work that night, so the UWS or UES location is important... they need to get to the highway and get going right after dinner.
By not expensive, I mean it is important to us to keep the price at around 50 pp, or less if possible. No one will be drinking alcohol.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
