Nice Dinner Out - Overwhelmed by Choices!

jp289 | Apr 7, 201706:42 AM

I'm bringing my mom to NYC for the first time for a belated birthday trip in a few weeks (April 19th-22nd). I'd like to take her out for a pretty nice dinner ($50-100ish per person and we will maybe have one drink each), and am having a hard time narrowing down a restaurant from all of the choices available. I think she'd mostly prefer American or French cuisine, but we would be open to Mediterranean/Italian or something else interesting as well. We will have Thai and Indian food other times during the trip and have great Mexican food where we are from, so I'd prefer to avoid those. Most importantly, I want food that is delicious and memorable--and I don't want portions so small that we are still hungry when we leave.

We are staying near the Empire State Building, but are willing to eat anywhere that we can take a cab. We'll plan to eat either Wednesday evening or Friday--advice on the best day to eat is also welcome.

Thank you in advance for any recommendations!
