      Awww, c'mon, somebody help. I can't send them to Metrazur or La Bonne Soupe or even Bread and Olive. There must be something better thqan Zipburger . . .

        I don't know your definition of "reasonable". In that area, the least expensive steak, relatively speaking, is probably either Palm or Michael Jordans, although both are still pricy.

          putting "reasonable" and "steak" in the same sentence in the context of midtown manhattan is a bit of a stretch. you can get reasonably priced down home grub at virgil's on 44th street or pay less than a king's ransom for decent steak at argentine pavillion on 46th street. maybe someone else has a better suggestion?

            most steaks in midtown are either expensive and good, or tourist-trap stuff and inedible. up to you.

            smith & wollensky (49th & 3rd) isn't too far off that path.

              perhaps Cite Grill? Not overly fancy and you might be able to get some meat and potatoes. one block west of radio city and maybe two blocks north.

                Maybe one of the numerous Irish pubs? I've eaten at Eamon's years ago and it was pretty good for a pub grub. It's on 45th between 5th and Madison. I would've sent to Margon, but they close early.

                  Thanks group - I suggested:

                  Frankie & Johnnies
                  Argentine Pavillion

                  Again, thanks all. I sure was a fish out of water on this one.

                    fairway grocer has an upstairs restaurant. their steak is yummy and prices good- not a steak house. surprisingly cafe style with white table clothes and nice wine selection.you can get what you want and cousin "butch" can get his steak.

                      I'll second the Fairway Cafe suggestion, and add Keen's to the list. Not reasonable, but the kind a place that a country cousin might like, and in the area (36th and 6th).

                        There's a relatively in expensive Brazilian steakhouse, Via Brasil, on 46th St Btw 5th and 6th Ave.
