We're taking my college roommate and her boyfriend, who are visiting from Switzerland, out for dinner tonight. I'm deciding between WD-50 and Artisinal, but given the weather, I'm wondering if anyone has other suggestions for a place with a particularly warm atmosphere. They're staying in East Midtown, and proximity to their hotel is also a consideration. (I know that WD-50 doesn't fit that criteria, but I've been wanting to go there forever...)
They're food interests are pretty broad--French, creative/regional American, Japanese... I think my biggest priority is brining them somewhere memorable - and, of course, warm!
