For Xmas dinner, try Brasserie 8 and a half on 57th St.
between 5th & 6th Ave. If they're open, they're sure to have
a lovely prix fixed meal at a reasonable price and their
food is wonderful. They're only 6 blocks north of
Rockefeller Center or a few blocks south of Central Park, so
a visit to either or these places after a lovely meal would
be great. Their website is

me know and I'll try to come up with some other suggestions.
