Need updated suggestions
Haven't been to the City for a couple of years. Will be there early May. Need suggestions for birthday dinner, some lunches a few other dinners. We are foodies, but don't need or want frou-frou, self-impressed venues. Great food, service, pleasant surroundings--moderate prices.
Will be staying midtown, on west side. A cab ride away is fine. Thanks.
