  1. 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

    1. Topaz Thai on West 56 betw 6th & 7th. Good food, good prices.
