Suggestions in the East 50's

  • p

I am taking classes at NYU and most of them are in the village. So finding something to eat before night classes was never a problem. This year the class is scheduled on 55th between Park & Lex. Not an ideal area for cheap or interesting eats.

Since I work downtown, I really have no idea what there is around there (just lunch type places?) If worse comes to worse I can stop at Astor Place on the way up. But if anyone has suggestions, it's greatly appreciated.

  1. Madison and 55th there is a Burger Heaven - stick to burgers and it is not bad. Typhoon Brewery on 54th bet 5th and Mad - bit more pricey.
