Any hidden gems near west 46th/9th?

Hi There,

I am seeing a show with 2 friends on west 46th, and would love to find a nice place for dinner ( around 20 pp) though I love eating before the theater, I don't really care for the area to much as I never seem to find any place that is anything but so so. Any hidden finds over there??

  1. A lot of people like Hell's Kitchen for upscale Mexican. If you want REAL Mexican, there is a delicious hole-in-the-wall on 10th and 46th called Tulcingo Del Valle. It's fantastic.

      Thanks :) I have read about Hell's kitchen, but not Tulcingo

    2. Daisy May's BBQ is on the corner of 11th Av. & 46th St. Fabulous ribs and tasty sides. Cafeteria-style service. Inexpensive. Worth the hike!

        Agreed! Also I'd add Tulcingo del Valle, Queen of Sheba, Wondee Siam II, all budget greats in the area

      2. you can't get much better a dining destination than hell's kitchen. $20pp? Hit the Yoshinoya at 42nd and 8th, and get a 40oz to go with it

          Please so not take your guests to's a great snack for the drunken boozehounds at 4 in the morning but in NO WAY should be ever be taken as a real meal.

        2. Thanks RGR, though I can afford to go higher, I am with college students on a budget. I find the places near time square much higher( on average) in price than other areas in the city, which is why I don't eat there often. But I thought there might be dinner specials or something :)

          1. A pretty good Japanese Izakaya type place that is very inexpensive, especially for drinks, is called Hagi..Its on w49th st between 7th and Avenue of Americas..
