Best lunch in Midtown with visiting family?

My aunts are coming to town and want to do lunch in Midtown. They are in their 60's and not very adventurous when it comes to restaurants. In the past I've accommodated them but I can't bear another crappy irish pub lunch. I got them to go to Beacon once and that seemed to make everyone happy.

Pls help me - I need a restaurant safe enough for them to feel comfortable and enjoy themselves but where I can have a decent lunch as well.

  1. Take them to Bar Americaine, which is Bobby Flay's place over on 7th Ave (I think) and around 49th or 50th St. It is bound to have some very "safe food", and they might get excited about the star chef thing...
