I'm sure this is redundant, but the amount of information here is mind-boggling! So...
Looking for pre-theater, midtown, semi-casual, Italian for my-middle-aged-self, my sister, and my 20-year-old niece. Price really isn't an issue, but I'd prefer something nice yet not too foo-foo:)
Chinese - a Saturday night in Chinatown preferred, although not required. Just looking for really good Chinese food. Nothing too experimental, but just damn good.
Any other recommendations are extremely welcome. I'm not a foie gras girl, just simply appreciate nice ambiance and good food.
