I haven't been there in years but I went last night (Y&E) location because we had just finished a movie. Now, nobody here (including myself) pretends for a second that this is haute cuisine. But since the last time I went (6+ years ago) things have improved tremendously. I will tell you that really the best part is that there is a bit of everything... it is incredibly frustrating to go to an upscale restaurant and find out one person in your party doesn't eat seafood so he orders a caesar salad for dinner -- or that one person in your party doesn't eat starch because of a low carb diet and so beef carpaccio for dinner... I think I have to change my mind about this place. Don't rush out for the best food in the city--but taking the family out (especially kids) can sometimes just involve something inexpensive and simple.
