Early Dinner, Mother's Day, UES

We're going to the Jewish Museum (92nd & Fifth) with Mom on Mother's Day. I know, I know, who wants to eat out on Mother's Day. The inlaws are coming in from NJ and I live in Queens so...I do not want a prix fix mothers day menu. Hate them Any type of food will do. Moderate price range. Nice place. HELP!

    Off hand here are some ideas..
    Atlantic Grill is good, Ecco -La, Island, Sfoglia(maybe pricey), Antonucci, Centolire, Beyogolu

      Menu Pages declares Ecco-La closed ... http://www.menupages.com/restaurants/.... Is this true?

      I know I recommend this place all the time, but with good reason. Square Meal is on the same block of 92nd St. as the museum. I would be surprised if they had a prix fixe. They offer a small selections of wine, but you can bring your own for a $2 corkage fee that goes to some charity - I think related to Katrina.

        Bistro du Nord on Madison and 93rd is right there. You'll have to call and see what they are doing if anything for mother's day but I think of that as a brunch thing, not dinner

          My concern about Bistro du Nord is that when it is good, it is quite good, but when it is not, it's not so great and I tend to find that it then seems expensive for what I've gotten. I also find Island overpriced for what it is.
