I live in DC and am taking my Mom to NYC for a shopping weekend. She's not supremely adventurous on food, i.e., no Asian or Indian or Sushi or the like (unfortunately!!) American, Italian, that sort of thing, would appeal to her.
I'd like to go somewhere with good food, does not have to be swanky or expensive (in fact, good but not expensive would be great). Let's say under 50 bucks a person for dinner, and less for lunch.
we will most likely be in Soho area and up and down 5th Ave - typical shopping trip, especially for someone who hasn't been there in a while (my Mom). We may be in Tribeca as well.
any ideas would be grand, thank you!
