Ok hounds! I need a last minute suggestion.
The bf's parents are coming in on thursday night for dinner. They enjoy steak/"Hearty Food" and the BF claims they wouldn't be into be taken to a 'hot spot' per se or anything in the realm of fancy sushi/nouveau/fusion/ect...(ooh, but per se would be nice!). They are staying near Penn Station, so I would like to keep anyplace we go to within a 15-20 block radius or in midtown east...
1) What restaurants would fit the critera of having a good steak option without causing everyone to have a heart attack on a plate if they didn't want it?(ie, something other than a standard steakhouse) (A nice bistro perhaps- again, excellent meats a must)
2) can accomodate us with a last minute reservation or walk-in?
3) not so much contingent on price, but rather nice room, good service, easy room volume for chatting.
Previously, when we have eating together, we went to Blue Smoke and Mesa Grill so not those again!
