    For a steakhouse, The Post House is right there, on 63rd, b/t Madison & Park. We've only been there once and I can't say I loved it, but it has its fans.

      Gino's on Lexington and 61st is that old school type of italian you're looking for. The place hasn't changed - EVER.

        First, I agree on the Post House: OK, but typical Alan Stillman restaurant. Next, If you are willing to break the 70th street barrier, you might consider Lusardi's. Northern I, but v good. Mrs. Lusardi (reportedly) comes in every day to check out the pasta. Can be inexpensive but also just the opposite. You actually don't need the menu; just tell them what you want and marry the wine with the food and relax (until the bill comes).

          Bottega del Vino is at 59th just east of 5th Avenue - I quite like the food there, both in front and in the dining room.
