My birthday is on a Friday and we will be in NYC. I am a seafood fan, but my husband and daughter are less so. They do like fish, but not clams or other shellfish. I would like a nice dinner (not fried fish and chips!), but we are not bringing formal clothes, just business casual. I also would say that I would enjoy it more if the food was good, but the prices were reasonable. ($75 per person including a glass of wine OR LESS.) Being on a coast, instead of in Illinois, seems like I should be able to get a fresh fish dinner. We are staying in the upper east side, but are comfortable using the subway and buses to get anywhere.
Thanks so much for the help!
