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!

      1. re: cubicles

        i would definately not rec cluny. that is full of 20-30 somethings and crowdy.

      2. Wallse, Recette on second Monday of the month ( other nights it is noisy). Knickerbocker, Da Andrea, En, Gotham

        1. 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.
