Gift, now dinner where?

I've been given a bunch of good suggestions for family trip over long weekend in July, again thanks.
Got a card from mother in law today for father's day, and she would like me to use enclosed for a NY meal for family. It would be likely Sunday night, 4 of us - wife and I, 18 and 11 year old - for a special occasion dinner. call it up to $70 pp, I'll sort out bevs, etc. Glad to pay a bit less.
What follows isn't meant to sound whiny, but trying to make a good call:

Mostly interested in good food, cool, welcoming atmosphere. It's a bit of a surprise for other three diners. I don't mind a name restaurant, dressing up a bit, I do mind feeling like a tourist rube - so, prefer less well known and good, vs. "Wow, we're here" and then a lousy time.
Sons are pretty hearty eaters, older one doesn't like sushi much.
Thanks for any help, if too involved a request, I certainly understand.
