Place to take dad to meet boyfriend?

Hi All,

I had posted something on this a month or so ago, and now it seems they've deleted it!

Anyway, my dad is coming into town from San Francisco. My aunt (whom we are very close to and whom HAS met my boyfriend) will coincidentally be in town too. Where do you think we should go on a Sunday night?

A few things:
1)my aunt has several food allergies, so it needs to be a place that is extremely accomodating (we went to Craft last time she was here and that was perfect).
2) my boyfriend is a meat and potatoes kind of guy. My aunt and I really enjoy seafood. Where can we go that will satisfy us both?
3) price: not extremely expensive (I think craft and eleven madison park is a bit much), but not hole-in-the-wall. Somewhere with a relaxed, comfortable setting.

  1. Red Cat is generally a crowd pleaser. Giorgio's of Gramercy might work as well.

    1. I do like knickerbocker on 9th street.

          oh wow...I'm clearly not the brightest crayon in the box. Sorry about that. Thanks for the replies so far, and thanks Chowhound team!

          1. I also recently had relatives come in from California (LA), and they specifically asked to go to a steak restaurant or Italian. I might recommend a steakhouse since it would meet your boyfriends needs and many steakhouses have great fish dishes. My favorite is The Strip House in the Village, a little smaller and intimate than the others. BLT Steak also has some great seafood dishes.
