I'm having lunch with two friends on Friday, one of whom works by Grand Central, while the second (the finicky one) works by Penn Station. I'd like to find a place by one or the other, or (ideally) equidistant between the two locations. The catch is that the finicky one is really finicky (i.e., she only likes naked fish and chicken, pasta with tomato sauce--really basic stuff). Most ethnic options are out. In fact, I think she's pretty much down with Italian, cafes/diners, and...not much else.
Any suggestions? Money is not an object, but I'd like to avoid any place where you have to dress up.
