I'm going to a play on 59th between 5th and Madison and would like to eat and drink beforehand. this seems like a tough neighborhood. any good suggestions? On the cheaper side, please.

      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
