Toughie dinner rec for tonight?

Taking my Dad to dinner tonight while mom's out of town and would love some ideas from you folks. Am in a bit of a rut with my typical EV/Gramercy haunts. Here are the specs:

-We're both 'houndish NYers. Recent typical meals with the folks include dining at: Le Tableau, O.G., Bao Noodles, Aleo
-Nothing fancy or particularly expensive. For example, wouldn't mind Blue Hill or Fleur de Sel, but he often insists on treating and, if that occurs, I don't want him to spend too much.
-I'm doing the no bread/pasta/rice/dessert/alcohol thing for a few weeks (too much decadence this summer!).
-I don't eat red meat and dad likes everything but cilantro (so mexican/latin are often tough).
-Location can be anywhere north of Canal and south of 23rd or Midtown East.
-Place has to take reservations.

Many thanks!!
