Looking forward to help with this assignment!
A friend's husband just charged me with picking a place for a celebratory dinner for 14 for Sunday Jan. 19 (nice, huh?). Upper East Side (or midtown east) strongly preffered.
He's picking up the tab, so I'd like to keep it under around $50/person if possible. Other criteria: Must take credit cards, be OK for a vegetarian or two, not Mexican or Japanese. Of course I'd like the food to be great, but at this late date it's mostly about us getting together and being in a reasonably nice place with decent service!
Some suggestions I've gotten - would love comments (I've only been to the w.side Rain):
