Restaurants near West 47th Street
I'm going to be down in NYC for a few days next week and am looking for some restaurant suggestions near my hotel. I'll be staying at the Econo Lodge Time Square.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!
Some of the best inexpensive restaurants in the city are located just blocks from where you'll be staying. Try:
azuri - middle eastern (more of a lunch spot)
tulcingo - mexican
queen of sheba - ethiopian
wondee siam - thai
465 W 51st St, New York, NY 10019
Tulcingo del Valle
665 10th Ave, New York, NY 10036
792 9th Ave, New York, NY 10019
Queen of Sheba
650 10th Ave, New York, NY 10036
There are literally hundreds of restaurants in the Times Square area. It would be helpful to know your cuisine preferences and your budget though since you're staying at the Econo Lodge, I'll presume you'd like to keep things moderate? That said, here are a few suggestions:
Italian: Trattoria Trecolori, on 47th, b/t B'way & 8th - http://www.trattoriatrecolori.com
Greek: Uncle Nick's, on 9th, b/t 50th & 51st - Menu on menupages.com
French: La Bonne Soupe, on 55th, b/t 5th & 6th - http://www.labonnesoupe.com
Szechuan: Wu Liang Ye, on 48th, b/t 5th & 6th - Menu on menupages.com
Second holland oats's Tulcingo rec (and I've heard great thigns about Azuri). I think (s)he recommended the same places on a similar, recent thread, if you want to do a search! (I know these can be hard to find if the prior poster referenced her hotel only by the cross street and not by area of town.)
Other places I recommended on the other thread:
Indus Express (great for chaat and fresh made naan, especially)
Jamaican Dutchy Cart (only the jerk chicken is really standout IMO)
Akdeniz (for a moderately priced sit down dinner, about $11 or $12 / entree; Turkish)
Kyotofu (sit down lunch / dinner spot; smaller plates, light food, great desserts)
Empanada Mama (really inexpensive, sit down lunch or dinner; venezuelan style arepas and empanadas)
There's also Pam's Real Thai, which used to be better than Wondee Siam. I think nowadays, they're both about the same: good, not really stellar if you're from a place that's strong on Thai food.
Anyway, happy eats! Throw out more criteria if these don't suit.
