low key 50th birthday dinner just for my family
Turning 50 tomorrow, and would like to have a nice, quiet, delicious dinner with my partner and our 14-year-old son. I live on the Upper West Side (better to stay home and cook); my fave restaurants are in Brooklyn and Queens, and include Zabb, Spicy and Tasty, Kyclades, LIttle Pepper, Pepe's (New Haven--world's best pizza). Any suggestions? Any of my standards would do, but something new and wonderful and perhaps a tiny bit more upscale--or perhaps not--would be fun, too. Have made two recent trips--Mexico City and Andalusia--ate incredibly well--but for variety, would like anything besides Mexican or Spanish. School/work night for all, so low key is, well, key. Thank you!
