Dinner reco - midtown west - Madison to 7th Aves, between 50 - 40 Sts
Headed in to NYC for my son's 13th birthday for theater and dinner. Only on picky eater in the group - 8 of us total. Any recommendations for a reasonable spot. Thinking American or Italian is probably easiest to accommodate all tastes and The Picky One. THANKS! Anything outside typical well-known, touristy spots is much appreciated.
Do you have a food budget in mund, before drinks, tax and tip? What does the Picky One not like to eat?
How about DB Bistro Moderne? If seafood isn't out of the question, perhaps Oceana.

That area is tough. The reasonable places that are not ethnic I can think of are Bill's burger bar, St Andrew's, which is a Scotish restaurant and La Bonne soup.

Hmmm St Andrews - don't know of it. La Bonne Soup may be too far afield in bad weather (as predicted for Sat). WIll check out Bill's Burger Bar too... would be much easier if it was just my two... accommodating other kids' tastes is proving to be tough... and especially when one is picky.
re: H Manning
I'd like to keep it under $30 for the kids. Hubby and I of course have a larger budget with drinks involved : ).
Let's just say, Picky One is likely to ask for buttered noodles in an Italian place.
Isn't DB Bistro Moderne a little too chichi for a group of kids? There will be 5 of them?
Our plan is show, dinner and ice skating at RocCtr (or flip the last two, depending when we can get reservations). We would consider 38 & 39 streets too - but we'll be walking as a group and the weather forecast isn't great for Sat.
Another possibility is Cafe Un Dex Trois, a staple in the theater district. The Picky One could get a burger there.
