Any suggestions for tonight?

      Not really. I didn't think there were too many places right around there.

        Mmmm.... Maybe I should also have asked how cheap is *your* concept of cheap? In any event, since Asian often falls into that category (at least, from my perspective), I'd suggest Wu Liang Ye, a short five-block walk south, on 48th St., b/t 5th & 6th Av. Very good Szechuan cuisine.

        La Bonne Soupe, the French bistro, is even closer, on 55th, b/t 5th & 6th. Lots more on the menu than just good soups. You can take a look at the menu on their website to see if it fits your budget.


    2. Burger Joint in the Parker Meridian. A cheeseburger with the works will set you back about $6.

      Menchanko-Tei on 55th (5th/6th) is another option. Their Hakata ramen is quite popular on this board. However, I found the pork overcooked.

      1. La Bonne Soupe. 48 W 55th St (btw 5th & 6th aves)

        A cute, cozy place for quiche etc. A little more suited for lunch than dinner, perhaps.

        1. Mangia is very good, at 57th and 6th. Very tasty Italian fare -- nice salads, paninis and delicious pastries.

          That area is a bit desolate for cheap stuff though...I work at MoMA and it ain't easy!

          1. the atrium cafe in olympic tower at 645 fifth, right off of 52nd street, is a good option. very reasonably priced they have panini, salads, soups, and some greek things as well.
