Non-pretentious restaurant for 5 year anniversary dinner

jerryann | Aug 9, 201309:40 AM

My husband & I are coming in from Toronto this Labour Day weekend and got my sister to look after my 18 month old for 24 hours, so we can spend our 5 year anniversary together in Manhattan. I'm looking for a restaurant in Midtown for dinner Saturday night; we're staying at the Peninsula (53rd & 5th), so preferably some place we can walk to or take a short cab ride. We don't like pretentious food (no 5-course tasting with foam on a spoon for us!) but we do like good food. Any ethnicity is good for us! Our budget is around $100 pp. I was thinking we'd do dessert & drinks at The Modern Bar (I didn't like the "boardroom" look the Dining Room had for dinner), but still looking for something for dinner. Any suggestions?
