Need RockCenterish suggestion for visiting friends

They are coming in late Nov. to celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary. She located Fig and Olive - where I've never been - but the reviews are just ok. Anyone have any suggestions along this menu-vein that might be special and nearby? They are staying at the Warwick and will go to dinner after a Sunday matinee. Many thanks! (My are of expertise is with smaller more casual bistros)

    1. For something special near the Warwick, I highly recommend Betony.

        That's the winner! Forgot about it. Great choice.

        BTW, OP Fig and Olive in not appropriate for a 25th Anniversary dinner. Nothing special.

      2. Fig and olive is good for a casual lunch with friends but not what you're looking for here.
