I and a friend are going to an 8:30 P.M. theatrical production at Here tomorrow. My friend likes Italian, French, and similar cuisines (he is not a very adventurous eater, doesn't like very spicy food and, since his mother is Mexican, doesn't eat Latin restaurant food). Where would you all recommend for a very good <$25/person early dinner (c. 6:45 P.M.), Italian, French, Greek, et al.? I figured we would meet at 3rd St. & 6th Av. and walk down from there.
