My parents are schlepping in from the suburbs for dinner this Thursday and would prefer (thanks in large part to their irrational fear of the New York City subway system!) to have dinner somewhere in Midtown. As I'll be footing the bill I'm looking for something reasonably priced (entrees under $20) and would like to stay safe in terms of cuisine, preferably French or Italian but possibly New American or something along those lines.
Any good suggestions?
Thanks in advance! (And wish me luck...)
