Seeking: inexpensive restaurant near 53rd Street & 2nd Ave
Hi. I want to have a girls dinner close by to 53rd Street & 2nd Ave. Go Sushi closed and I'm not crazy about Taksim. Where do you suggest.eating?
Thanks in advance!
Sip Sak (Turkish) seems to be pretty strong, food-wise. (Service is variable.) It's not too spendy. Entrees are all under $20, with many options priced at $13.50.
There's Ethos (Greek), as well. I've never eaten at the location on 51st and 1st ave, but the one in Murray Hill is very good. There are a few options under $20. For the grilled fresh fish, the best thing on the menu IMO, expect to spend about $25 / whole fish. The Murray Hill location serves this with a (substantial) side dish, pita bread, and a complimentary dessert.

Two relatively inexpensive French restaurants are in the area: Montparnesse (51 & 2nd) & Les Sans Cullottes (57 & 2nd). Their prix fixes are IMO worth the money even though you'll be time constrained for ordering. Best of luck.
