former NYCer returning for dinner - need recommendations

I moved to Boston 5 years ago so I am not in touch with the restaurant scene in NYC anymore. need recommendations preferrably Italian or New American for dinner with 2 friends. Old favorites included Harrison, Red Cat, Mermaid Inn, Il Bagatto, Balthazar, Keen's and Gotham. So casual and great food but not too fancy. Went to Colichio & Sons for dinner about 6 months ago so looking for similat recommendations for a Sunday night dinner. Prefer to stick with manhattan and some where that will be busy even on a sunday night. I am staying midtown west by columbus circle but will go anywhere except Upper East or Upper West. Any hep would be great!
