Deals like Sunday Supper at Dovetail

I'm looking to take my Aunt and Uncle out to dinner as an xmas gift and was hoping to find a good rec. I took them out to Dovetail for Sunday supper for a celebratory/thank you dinner earlier this year and they loved it.
I was looking for something similar that has a prix fixe for $40-60 a person like dovetail. I'm hoping to keep the bill for 3 under $200 including tax and tip. We're not big drinkers so it's mostly just food. Preferably something uptown as I'm on the UWS and they are comign across the GW.
Preferably a sunday night meal? I know convivio has a $59 pre fixe...any thing else?
I know that the newly Micheline starred Marc Forgione in Tribeca has a great Sunday Supper. Its $35 dollars for an appetizer, entree and dessert - they usually give you an amuse as well. Considering on other nights they have entrees that run $32, its not a bad deal.
I've yet to go but, I've also heard that The Harrison has a pretty solid Sunday Supper.
Either way, I hope it goes well!
Bar Blanc offers a $35 3-course menu on Sunday, with 5 choices for each course. Excellent food. Compass has a $35 3-course prix-fixe every day, in addition to the a la carte menu. The choices are limited (3 per course) but the style and quality are very similar to Dovetail and if the dishes on the prix-fixe appeal to you it is a very good deal. I would choose Convivio over any of these, though.
Sunday Supper at Public is pretty great. 5 courses for $45, although be forewarned that none of these courses are on the menu and many of them are trial items, so it could be hit or miss. i thought it was great, though.
Perry St (further downtown, but on the west side at least) has a $38 prix fixe early/late. Not tons of choices, but very nice space and Jean Georges food.
