For Italian a few blocks away from Rockefeller Center, take a look at Il Corso on 55th between 5th & 6th. Not a huge touristy place. Excellent food. Homemade pasta. Nice ambiance. http://www.opentable.com/il-corso

Also note that "$30 to $35 per person" is not a sufficient budget for a "nice steakhouse" in Manhattan.

NO..that is very low end, but I recommend Empire Steakhouse on 52nd street. Ate there last Saturday night--it was restaurant week price--$38 for 3 courses..it was devine.

Noodle around menupages.com. You'll find restaurants organized by location, cuisine, meal, price, etc. If you find something that interests you, come back to the forum and ask about your selections.

Just checked Empire website and they offer a $48 pre theater price fix for 3 courses. Not bad.
