  1. TAKSIM is a great turkish place on 54th and 2nd.

    ZIP burger - i think 52nd and 2nd

    KRUNCH pizza - same as above

    PJ Clarkes for burgers and such on 55th and 3rd

    California Pizza Kitchen, Patsy's, David Burke, 360 Brasserie..all near Bloomingdales

    1. This query comes up about twice a week. Posts on the same area are probably still on the first and second pages of this board, if you scroll a bit.

      There's Cafe Zaiya and Yaguro, Pampano Taqueria, Menchanko-Tei, Bayan for Filipino, etc. If you do a search, there's a REALLY good list of cheap spots that someone put up maybe three years ago.

      1. Bunchberries is really good for it's healthy food bar.
