Can anyone recommend any mid-range, not-pricey but nice restaurants in MIDTOWN, that I could go to with my family for my birthday dinner this Friday? My folks live in the West 50s and since my dad has Parkinson's, I sort of want to keep it close to home.
But then there are a lot of crappy mid-range hotel-theater-tourist restaurants around there.
At the four star-expensive-ones -- Daniel, Aquavit, etceteras -- my mother just orders the prix-fix and I end up feeling really lousy ordering off the menu.
Basically, can you think of a midtown neighborhood place that's good but not too much of a splurge?
The Market Cafe on Ninth Avenue is one place I'm considering...
Thanks in advance.
