Very Quiet Restaurant in W Vill / Soho?

Lovely! SO quiet! Wonderful seafood. Marvelous service.

It is a haven in two neighborhoods (TriBeCa and SoHo) in which good food is not served without a huge extra helping of noise.

Go!

Tomorrow. between 10-12 or 2-4. Lobby is fine if a cup of tea or a drink is possible. Snack at a bar or lounge fine.

I need to entertain foreign guests on their way through NYC -- they are getting off one train, spending time with me (not during lunch), then getting back on another train.

Please recommend a non-sleazy, calm place I can entertain them for a couple hours. THANKS!

Going to wander in Jackson Heights and sample different Indian dishes / snacks. Suggestions?

Follow-up: Thank you, responders.

We found fabulous chaat at Bombay Chaat --73-19 37th Rd. (between 73rd and 74th Sts; good grocery shopping at Patel's. We couldn't find the Haat Bazaar -- the "Haat market" at the location described below seems to have turned into a clothing / electronics store.

Too chilly for kulfi, alas.

Went to the Jackson Diner because....hmm..can't remember. Won't do that again. Nothing rose above the level of 6th Street curry row in Manhattan.

We'll go back on a day more comfortable for street eating.

A group of us are heading to Jackson Heights to look around (in the snow, I fear) on Sunday and are looking for suggestions about where to stop in for especially interesting / authentic / delicious Indian food. Suggestions about restaurants and dishes needed.
