Suggestions for area by West 50's?

Any suggestions for lunch in the area? I will be in the area later this month for a series of meetings - any type of food, not too expensive - somewhere that has outside seating would be great! Thanks-

  1. While it doesn't have the best food in the city, The Hudson Cafeteria has a great atmosphere, outdoor seating and fantastic drinks.

    1. Luxia is on 48th St., b/t 8th & 9th Avs. I haven't been but I recall posts by Hounds who've tried it and said the food's pretty good. They have a back garden and from the photo on their website, it looks positively charming. That's an impetus for me to now put it on my "go to" list.

        Thanks - I'll probably check both out as I don't really know that area too well -

          One more restaurant to consider: Barbetta. Located in a townhouse with landmarked interior decor, they celebrated their 100th anniversary last year. The food gets mixed reviews, but the garden is gorgeous!
