Greetings chowhounds! Happy holidays!
My father is getting re-married next week and as a gift we are giving them gift certificates to several restaurants. We have the list almost complete -- River Cafe, Tocqueville, Tabla, Wallse, L'Ecole, Piccolo Angolo -- and are looking for one or two more places to round out the list.
As you can see from the above list, we kind of run the gamut in terms of style and price. A couple of caveats about my father and his soon-to-be wife: they keep "kosher-style," meaning they will eat anywhere but will not order shellfish, pork or mix milk and meat, but will order anything else that could be kosher (steak, poultry, fish). Additionally, she does not eat a lot of red meat. And they are not big drinkers, including wine. They live in Waterside (25th & FDR), but neighborhood is not much of an issue.
So, with all that said, we are looking for one or 2 more places to complete the list. I turn to you for suggestions -- what is our list missing? Is there anyting on our list that we should reconsider? I would think prices in the Tabla range and below is what we are looking for at this point.
Thanks in advance!
