How nice/big a restaurant did you need?

Dafni.  It’s a greek restaurant. Very good.  Very reasonably priced (for NYC).  They’re not huge, so if you’re taking a group, I would call way ahead.  It’s really close to the theater district.  This is where we usually when we go in.

Here’s the website: http://dafnitaverna.com/

Good luck!  What a wonderful gift, by the way!

Marriot Marquis (spelled that wrong) right on Times Square has a rotating restaurant with an awesome view!

If he likes pasta, you can try Becco. They have a great pasta prix fixe where you get unlimited amount of like 3 pastas. Yum!

A wonderful restaurant in the Times square area is Zuni, on the corner of 43rd st and 9th ave. Very very good food and a great atmosphere.

It’s one of those places that often has more locals than tourists, it’s that good.

I live in Hell’s Kitchen. Try Il Melograno on 51st and 10th.  Yummy italian and since it’s an avenue over, it’s a bit far removed from the tourist crowds.  Local place.

I second the recommendation for Becco–it’s Lydia Bastianich, how can you go wrong?!  In addition to the above-mentioned pasta special, the interior is really nice and homey (brick walls, copper pots, etc.) and they have a very reasonably-priced wine list.  If you want to go a little fancier (i.e., more expensive), I’d suggest Esca – http://www.esca-nyc.com/ – I’ve actually never been there but I’m dying to go.  It’s Mario Batali (so again, how can you go wrong?!) and sounds pretty great from the Zagat reviews.  My other go-to in the Theater District is Nook (http://newyork.citysearch.com/profile/41295870/new_york_ny/nook.html) – it’s new American, not Italian, and it’s nothing fancy but it’s very small and intimate AND it’s a BYO (which is totally rare for NYC and obviously really cuts the cost…well if you’re a wino like me anyway ;)) and the food is good.  Also like Cara Mia that lauren810c suggested.

Good luck & have fun!! 🙂
