Hi! My in-laws are coming in from Chicago in mid-April (Sunday and Monday nights). We will be staying at the Four Points Sheraton Soho with them and our 2 kids (9 and 6 1/2). After eating my way through lower Manhattan in January, I would like to do something similar with the in-laws, but maybe at some different places. They have never been to NYC and even though we are not locals, we want to really show them a good time. My ideas for dinners: nothing too fancy (no EMP or a tasting menu), but something with really great food and a comfortable vibe. We have no food restrictions, except for Mexican (better in Chicago). My in-laws are not the most adventurous, but they do appreciate good, not too fancy, food (In CHicago, they prefer Frontera over Topolobampo, for example).
For a possible Italian dinner, I am looking at Otto, Locanda verde, Perla. Other interesting places: Vin et Fleurs, Le Pescadeux, Minetta Tavern.
What can you help me with? Thank you so much.
