Nice anniversary dinner for the in-laws
need some help. Want to take the in-laws out for their anniversary. Five of us, including my pesca/veggie wife.
prefer west side.
no indian or ethiopian.
up to 75 pp range including a glass of wine and dessert.
I know that's a pretty wide net, but I'm kind of daunted- this is not the kind of thing i usually do, i'm usually on chowhound for cheap eats here, and hidden treats out of town.
I presume the French restaurant you just went to is Pigalle? In any event...
My suggestiong of the in-law's anniversary dinner would be Telepan, opn 69th St., b/t Columbus Av. & CPW. Excellent New American cuisine, professional service, and understated elegant ambiance. There's an a la carte menu + several prix-fixe options. So, you should have no trouble meeting your bumped up $100pp budget.
You didn't mention Italian, but if that would interest you I would suggest Convivio. Alternatively, for new American/Italian/French try Olana. Both of these are very comfortable and not too noisy with excellent service, wonderful food, and they will fit your budget.
