I'm going to Park Avenue Cafe on Friday night with my boyfriend and his parents. I ate there twice when it first opened several years ago, but I haven't been back since (not for any reason). I remember it as being quite nice.
Is anything on the menu particularly good (or bad)? Or should we just go somewhere else?
The only parameters are: It would make it easier for his parents to stay on the east side (uptown or downtown), "american" food, steak or seafood. After reading about Scalinatella on this board, I wanted to go there, but my boyfriend's father is nuts and doesn't want Italian food.
I'm also contemplating Maloney & Porcelli or Oceana (if I can even get a reservation for Friday).
Any comments or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance and happy holidays.
