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

      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.

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

            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.
