My dad is turning 70 next week. He lives in NJ but works in NY, midtown. He and my step mom frequent New York for new dining experiences. They are into all kinds of foods. I could consider their style as more "eclectic." I live in California and was thinking of getting him a gift card to a restaurant in NY. Are there any hip or trendy restaurants that you can recommend? It needs to have character, great food but doesn't have to be over the top expensive.
Your suggestions are greatly appreciated!
