American/French Warm and Roomy

Hi- looking for somewhere to take my mom post theatre next Sat. night. She likes a warm ambience with roomy tables. No cramped quarters and not too modern. American or French--not too concerned with price. A trip to the city is a rarity so trying to find something special. Prefer west 40's but willing to grab a cab...thanks so much!

  1. Marseille (44th and 9th) is quite comfortable and has excellent French and Moroccan food. I've gone late on Saturdays and as the crowd is thinning out they will usually seat 2 people at a table for 4 so you have lots of room, but even the tables for 2 are pretty well spaced.

    1. West Bank Cafe, on 42nd St., b/t 9th & 10th, serves delicious New American cuisine. Friendly, capable service. Attractive, warm decor. Well-spaced tables, some free-standing and others along a very comfortable banquette.

      1. I'm sorry I don't know of anything in the west 40s, but if you don't mind making a short trip up to Ouest on the UWS, I think that would fit the bill perfectly. They have large leather banquettes. It's a classy, elegant, yet comfortable place with impeccable food and service.
