We will be going to an event next week at MSG. Last couple of times we ate at Seven, but the food there is really very mediocre and expensive for what you get. Can anyone recommend some other alternatives no more than a few blocks away? (I don't want to go as far as Artinisal that older posts recommend). Thanks everyone!
Tir Na Nog for some good pub food.
If you want to spend a little more, Frankie and Johnny's or Keen's
My go to spot is Mooncake Foods on 30th and 8th. The food is fantastic, (fresh, simple, and very comforting) and shockingly cheap. (Entress average around 8.50, and Sapporo pints are $2.50). The miso salmon is awesome.
My first pick would be Keens, on 36th St., b/t 5th & 6th Avs. If prices in the main dining room are too high for your budget, the Pub Room's prices are gentler.
Uncle Nick's, on the corner of 8th Av. & 29th St., serves tasty Greek food. Menu on menupages.com.
Biricchino, the Italian restaurant, is across the street, on 29th, just east of 8th. We've not eaten there, but Hounds who have say the food's good.
