good cheap eats and drinks around 59th st?
the location & price requirements don't lend themselves to really "foodie" places, but these are two places I like that fit the requirements:
Burger Joint -- cheap beer & good burgers
inside Le Parker Meridien hotel (behind a curtain in lobby)
118 W. 57th St., New York, NY 10019 nr. Sixth Ave.
212-708-7414 (no reservations and cash only, but so cheap who cares)
consistently gets good reviews, only sells burgers, fries, beer & brownies
Angelos Coal Oven Pizza -- pizza & pasta
117 W 57th St
New York, NY 10019
(212) 333-4333 (takes reservations)
I love the Gemelli Alla Fiorentina -- it's pasta with marinara, chicken and arugula
they serve beer don't know about wine
