Meal before baby induction near NYU- TONIGHT!
I will be induced tomorrow morning as my first born is reluctant to join us. I have to go to the NYU Hospital (Ist Ave and 30th) at 8 p.m. and I want to have dinner close by, as once I go in I won't be able to eat ANYTHING again until I give birth. So I am looking for a place that can offer a good meal, that is both substantial (I will need the energy), but not heavy ( I cannot have an upset stomach tomorrow). So Indian is out, and I would rather not do a burger or steak. Any suggestions in the neighborhood; I am always at a loss around there. Obviously, I would like a place with a nice vibe- I'll be nervous enough as it is and don't need any frat boys screaming on my ear or snooty waiters giving me attitude.
THANKS FOR ANY SUGGESTIONS!
Ali Baba is a good suggestion. But you might also want to consider Trio, on 33rd, b/t 3rd & Lex. Nicely-prepared Mediterranean cuisine. Good service. Pleasant, relaxing atmospherics. I think they have live piano music during the week.
Hope all goes well with your delivery. :-)
