seeking nice and quiet village restaurant rec

I have a very special guest coming in from Europe next week. She's a refined and sophisticated older woman, but not one for pretension. I want to take her somewhere nice and quiet in the Village somewhere. Around $30 entree price point. Does anyone have suggestions?

I hope you're all enjoying this beautiful snow!

          I'm unsure of what you mean by "nice" but here are two suggestions for quiet restaurants that might fit the bill:

          •North Square, 103 Waverly Place in the Washington Square Hotel, doesn't seem to get a lot of attention but the food is good, not trendy or pretentious.

          •El Charro, 4 Charles Street, is a quintessential Greenwich Village Spanish restaurant. It's been there forever; not too many like it are left.
