My parents and friends of theirs are visiting me in nyc next month, and while I've made reservations for four of the fives days they'll be visiting the remaining day is inducing a small headache. For starters it's Labor Day, which I think means a lot of places will be closed. What's more is what I (I mean my parents) desire; they want a nice Italian place that's not too loud nor too trendy. Ordinarily I'd do Max, Celeste or Gennaro but no reservations is a deal breaker. They've been to Babbo (ok), L'Impero (great), A Voce (too noisy), and Fiamma (good). I was thinking about trying something less fancy seeing as we've tried many of the fancier places (they've been to Del Poso and Felidia too).
So far all I've come up with is Crispo, but I'm worried it'll be too noisy and/or too trendy?
Any and all suggestions would be most welcome!
