    I LOVE Bao Noodles on 3rd Ave between 22nd and 23rd. The steak salad, the salt and pepper shrimp. Yum! Service is hit or miss, but cheap and good fresh food.

      I used to work at 25th and Park...
      -I love the burger place on Park (the name is escaping me) - but if you head north it's on your right side, maybe around 24th. Burgers are amazing, so are the onion rings and the chili!
      -Rafiqi's food cart - SO GOOD - this is on the opposite side of the street from the burger place, in front of the Credit Suisse building.
      -Pax on 23rd/Park actually has good margherita pizzas
      -There's a cheap italian/pizza place on 22nd ish that has ok pasta
      -Hale and Hearty Soups

        NY Burger Co? Their patties are always overcooked, dry, and bland. They need serious seasoning, but the custom ketchups and such are nice.

        When I used to live around there, I liked Lamarca on 22nd and 3rd for pasta. In fact there were several nice not too expensive restaurants on 3rd if that is not too far for you. I also agree with eisenbergs, love the egg creams.
