dinner with parents in west village/chelsea

Gramercy Foodie Dec 19, 2007 06:31 AM

My wife and I are having dinner with both of our parents in a few weeks and were looking for suggestions on where to go. We live in Chelsea so would prefer to stay in the chelsea/west village area. My wife is lactose intolerant, so thats an issue, but don't want to do a vegan place. We've been to a lot of places in the area, but were hoping to tap into the brain trust on this board.

Dinner in on a sunday and we'd like to eat somewhere that isnt going to be overly loud or too trendy. Just somewhere nice and simple with good food.

        Crispo is always a safe bet. Have you been?
        There's also: Markt, August, Gonzo, Cookshop

            cookshop is good but bustling...my parents dug it but usually they like something a bit more intimate.

      What about bar stuzzichini (I guess more flatiron) - we went on a double date here where my friend's bf is lactose intolrant - he had to pop a couple pills during dinner, but there were lots of options to choose from.

      I ate at Po' in Brooklyn and it was very good, I am sure the W. village location is similar.

        Simple, good American aptly describes Blue Hill.
