    1. re: MrsBanks

      thanks for this and reply from prolix!

    2. I had a really lovely dinner at Ai Fiori recently—and it's midtown, so, easy, but it's expensive. My sentimental pick for favorite midtown restaurant is Orso, on W. 46th. If you want to get to MoMA, The Modern is an easy suggestion. And to throw in one for good measure, not near any of those places: The Dutch. It's in SoHo, great for lunch (the fries are the best in Manhattan, I think, and if the curry donuts are still on the menu, get them for *sure*).
