can you name others like north fork inn, little owl...
Need somewhere in Manhattan or Brooklyn to take my mother for her 60th. While we're super into food, she'd likely be overwhelmed by somewhere like Gramercy or Daniel. We need one step down on the mellowness food chain. She's loved the North Fork Inn, Little Owl, Babbo, and dell'anima. Any other ideas where the food is awesome and the environment is fun but not intimidating?
