Family in town - one night - midtown dinner near Penn Station/Times Sq

  • 2

So my family is coming in - just for one night - and I want to take them out to dinner someplace good. Unfortunately they can only do midtown area, near penn station & times sq. I don't want anything too touristy or tacky - something actually good - but simple is good as well. Any suggestions? My experience (I live on the UWS) is that everything over there is over the top, overpriced, and not really that good.

  1. Cuisine preferences? And what is your per person budget for food only (drinks, tax & tip additional)?

    ETA: Looking at the time stamps, I see that Kathryn and I cross-posted.

    1. What's your price range? What does your family typically like or dislike? Any picky eaters or allergies? Cuisine avoids?

      Could you do the pub room at Keens?

      Or walk over to Daisy Mays BBQ (might be a little far to walk)?

      Would something in Koreatown be OK with them? Or Szechuan Gourmet?
