cheapish, food near 30 Rockefeller plaza

TouchTheSquid Jan 8, 2008 09:15 AM

My boyfriend and I are going to a taping of Conan this thursday (hooray!) and we're looking for a good place to eat within a short walking distance of 30 rockefeller plaza. We like most foods, but we'd like somewhere that isn't super greasy. We're looking to have entrees $20 or below. I was looking at Cafe Europa, is that a good option?

        Second this. Wu Liang Ye is also near--I haven't been but have heard good things.

          Don't know Cafe Europa but I'd give another vote for La Bonne Soupe!

            I get lunch at Cafe Duke on 51st quite often, they have a Korean food bar with decent bibimbop

              Tuscan Square, south side on 51st between 5th & 6th but go downstairs. They have a serve yourself. Best secret in midtown, IMHO. BUT ... they raised their prices for the new year. Still good food for the price.
