Flatiron / Gramercy area - need restaurant suggestion for simple fish, chicken or pasta.

Going out tonight with my friend whose doctor just put him on a bland diet for a digestive problem. Looking for a place that does a nice whole grilled fish. Or maybe simple chicken or pasta that doesn't involve tomato sauce. Preferably around Union Square, Flatiron or Gramercy Park.

  1. Craft or perhaps Manzo.

    1. Hmmm Giorgio's of Gramercy had good chicken and pasta- it's also small enough I wouldn't be worried to ask the chef to make something special. Il Pesce at Eataly and Barbounia do a whole grilled fish...just ask them to go light on the olive oil as both have a heavy hamd.

      1. How is Periyali these days? Haven't been in years. They offer grilled fish and simple sides.

        1. Blue Water Grill does a variety of simple grilled fish.

          1. Thanks for the suggestions. It looks like my friend's bland diet is going to have to continue for a while, so we're having to develop some new eating choices.
