      Two French bistros with very good food and lovely back gardens:

      Gavroche, on 14th, b/t 7th & 8th - http://www.gavroche-ny.com

      Gascogne, on 8th, b/t 17th & 18th Sts. - http://www.gascognenyc.com

        South of you is Good, on Greenwich Avenue near Bank. Or for that matter Cafe Brussel.

        A bit north is Le Zie (20th? and 7th Ave). And Cafeteria (19th? and 7th Avenue).

          Flay yourself, perhaps, at Mesa Grill?

            Not really moderately priced...

              Whoops. Missed that part of the OC.

              On the other hand, it's not crazy-pricey either. And you can get in and out of there quick for the show if you eat at the bar (I used to work two doors down and lived at that bar; don't tell the boss:))

              Basta Pasta on 17th between 5th and 6th would be a good choice

                The mussels at Singe Vert are excellent. Or, I second Le Zie and Gascogne.
