Any cheap eats-with seating-in the Bloomingdales area?

Really not familiar with the area but seeing an off-Broadway show in the vicinity on Thursday.

        oh boy-just checked out their prices-not for my budget

      2. dinner-about 30 w/tax/tip/4/2

        1. There is a great Turkish place on 54th and 2nd called TAKSIM. Don't know if this is too far out of the way, but their food is fresh and delicious and very reasonable prices.

            Had dinner there last night-WONDERFUL: hummus with falafel, moussaka, and lamb shank. Deliciious and truly friendly service...now if they'd only oopen a branch in Brooklyn. Thanks for the rec!

          2. The frozen yogurt stand IN Bloomingdales!

            1. Fresh Basil's, on Lex ave between 55th and 56th is affordable, acceptable Italian.

              1. John & Tony's, cheap but decent red suace Italian, at 60th & 1st. My significant other likes the veal piccata, but cannot keep from dipping bread into my veal parm.

                1. Paper Moon Express on 59th between Madison & Park has Italian-themed salads & pizzas.
