I know there's a million places. I just need 2 or 3.
I know there have been a lot of NYC threads. I'm too lazy to go through them.

So, if you were spending two or three days in New York, what two or three
MODERATELY priced places would you go to? And, yeah, I know moderate
in NYC is different from moderate elsewhere.

Well, I know we'll be at West 52 Street (between Fifth & Sixth Avenues).
No impression needed, it's just the Lovely Bride, Rhys and me.

So if YOU were in that area, where would YOU eat?

La Bonne Soupe
48 West 55th Street
Manhattan, NY 10019
(212) 586-7650

Have the onion soup. It's the best. Also have a crepe.

Joe Allen
326 West 46th Street
New York, NY 10036
(212) 581-6464

This place is pricey. If you can afford it, go. It's one of my favorite restaurants in the city. I love the La Scala salad.

I haven't been in this neighborhood for a while. I'll keep trying to remember more places I used to hang out at.

Enjoy, George.

Hamburger Harry's

Big, messy, juicy, delicious burgers. Slurp.

I Love This Place
PietraSanta
9Th Ave and 47th Street.
(I mostly go late nights but I took my out of town sister and my brother the priest there for lunch...they open at noon..and they were swept away. Black fetticine or the whatever is the Ravioli of the Day.)
OR
44 SouthWesthttp://www.44southwest.com/

(It's on the southwest corner of 9th Ave at 44Th Street) right.
Cheaper than the above.
Family owned and operated.
Very basic (like you helped cook it it the kitchen) Italian food.

You cannot go wrong with either one.

George, Joe Allen's and the places Joe suggested are very far west. I mean a hike.

The Carnegie Deli is not my favorite, but it's very Noo Yawky (and a madhouse at lunch).
854 7th Avenue, around 55th St.

@George,
On a beautiful day, Shake Shack: Madison Square Park, 11 Madison Avenue and E23rd St. Best burgers in the city. Beautiful park setting.

@George,
That sooo can't be described as either moderate or modest. Shocked

@tsarstepan,
I would not use the word moderate either. I had lunch there years ago. I know where I lived at the time, so it had to have been close to 28 years ago.

@ossobuco,
There's a relatively new emporium of italian foodie interest; I forget the name and I assume it is expensive. Still, I'd enjoy a wander through before I hit the places I've ever saved links for with more exotic food at lesser prices.

It depends on where you start, says a one-time walker. Fifth to Sixth is an excrutiatingly long block.

I'm assuming that George wants a place near where he's going to be. We don't know how much time he'll have for lunch or to get where he's going and to get back.

Hey, George. How much time will you have for lunch.?
