Help! Romantic dinner rec for TOMORROW night!

gwendolynmarie Aug 8, 2008 03:05 PM

I've been entrusted by my parents to make their dinner reservations for tomorrow night, early (pre-theatre). It's their 30th Anniversary(!).

They are not foodies in the least but Love love food (no offal, no bone marrow, etc.), for this evening I think they are looking for Italian, French, or Vietnamese, but really, it's all about atmosphere. A quiet, well-designed space takes precedence, a calm and elegant space, and something that is a little..."different".

They'd like to go somewhere near their theater, on W 48th and Broadway, but they are not opposed to a short taxi ride (Brooklyn and anything below 24th are pretty much out of the question).

Any ideas???

        That was my first bet- but I believe they're closed until September?
