Help... recommendations W. 50s?

I'm going to a play with mom and her friends, at Studio 54 (so 54th and 8th area) and need a great idea for 5:00 dinner... not too far, older people (70s) so not too loud and good food and some charm. I'm drawing a blank. Please help, I've got out of town folks who are relying on me to come up with the right place.

      Thanks. That looks just perfect. The other I came up with is Basso56. Or I see Maria Pia is next door. I'm going with ViceVersa but was curious if you were familiar with these others. Thanks again.

        amber...don't know the other 2, but according to Zagat, Maria Pia is rated 21 for food, ViceVersa 23...which I believe to be too low a score. Mangia....
