Where should I take Grandparents in Manhattan

My Grandparents are coming to town in a few weeks, and I figure I need to start making reservations for when they come.

They are both in good shape for octogenarians, but my Grandfather is is getting pretty hard of hearing, so I would like places that are pretty quiet.

While I'm not looking to do any long tasting menus (I don't that is something they would enjoy anyway) and am not looking to spend huge amounts of money, but I think a budget of 350 a meal for 4 including a decent bottle of wine is fine, and I'm probably pretty flexible on that to be honest.

They generally would probably like to stick to Italian, French, or New American cuisine.

I was thinking maybe Marea, Blue Hill, or Lincon for their sound levels, but I have never been to any of those places, so thats a total guess.

And lets focus on the quiet part the most.

Any suggestions you have would be greatly appreciated.

Banh mi Madrid?

I have been in Madrid for a while now, and as much as I love a good bocadillo de jamon, I really could go for a decent Banh Mi. I know Madrid lacks a lot of international foods, but if there is anywhere that makes a Banh mi please help me out.
