Family coming in from out of town: Need a nice place for dinner in Midtown East that is not too expensive

Hi Chowhounders!

My parents and sister are coming in from upstate and I need to take them to a nice place for dinner. We will be in midtown east ( by grand central, Rockefeller center), but wouldn't mind walking 10 blocks or so for the right place. I would like to only spend around 30 dollars a person, and it would be great if that included drinks. Am I dreaming?

My sister is a vegetarian and I can't eat gluten. My parents aren't super adventurous eaters- so although I am open to ethnic foods, they like to recognize dishes on the menu. Whole in the wall is okay.

Any help you all can give me would be very appreciated! Thanks!

  1. Well, I would ordinarily send a vegetarian to Thai or Vietnamese, your gluten issues complicate that. If you're super strict gluten free I am not sure what to recommend. If not super strict I would send you to Darbar Indian... it is cheap, a vegetarian can be happy, a gluten free eater who eats vegetables, chicken and rice can be happy. This is not a strict gluten free place
