Hi, guys! I need your help! Here's the situation: My bf's father is coming in to the city on Sarturday and wants to go to dinner. I'm trying to figure out where to take him. We would prefer restaurants located below 23rd street (village, union square...), but are flexible. He likes Italian, Middle Eastern, Greek, Cuban, Spanish and New American. Nothing too spicy (unfortunately!). Inexpensive to moderate price range and nothing too loud or trendy.
Here's the embarrassing part: We've lived in NYC for almost five years now and I work as a cook. Naturally all of our guests expect me to pick the restaurant and use my "insider knowledge" to show them a true gem. Unfortunately, I have the world's worst luck and judgement when picking restaurants for others! I am giving up and putting myself in your capable hands, guys! Thanks!!!
