Restaurant suggestions for 70th birthday

madison65 | Apr 5, 201206:27 AM

My parents are going to New York April 12-15 to celebrate my mom's 70th birthday. I am hoping to make them reservations somewhere and pay for a birthday dinner for the 2 of them (I will not be there).

They live in Toronto and have been to New York before but not for a few years. They are quite active, and have travelled a lot, and generally like all types of cuisine, though I would say their preference would be more mainstream Italian, French, fusion etc.

I'd like to send them somewhere that's special enough for a birthday dinner without being pretentious, and probably not somewhere too loud or too "trendy". Price wise I would say mid-range, maybe $25-$35 entrees (is that mid-range?)

Location - they are staying at the Essex on Central Park south, but could go anywhere by taxi or subway.

2 places that come to mind only because I've been a few years ago are Public and Waverly Inn (although our waiter was very rude at Waverly), but I'm sure there are other good choices as well.

Any recommendations are welcome!
