Ok thanks to you all and some other sites I think I have it narrowed down a bit
Anyone want to weigh in on these options for the 4 us of (2 of which are teenaged girls)
Friday nite - UWS (around 75th and Broadway)
Epices or Bettola
Sat nite - around New Amsterdam theatre
Tintol, Akdeniz, Dervish
Want to have at least one sort of different meal, hence the Sat nite choices. We don't want Mexican or Chinese and we're always making my husband eat Thai so he's said "not this trip" unless we can talk him into Pam Real THai. No BBQ and nothing too expensive.
