American/$$ - Walking Distance of Central Park South

Need a cost-efficient spot ("Ruby Tuesday" prices/$12-20 for entrees) with American cuisine -- burgers, fish, comfort food -- that's within walking distance/short train ride from Central Park South. Would like to make a reservation, as this is for a group of 13 on a weeknight. Clients are involved, so looking for a quality establishment for an early dinner but doesn't need a whole lot of bells and whistles. Open to any and all suggestions!

  1. I think a good fit would be Mickey Mantles at 42 Central Park South. Salads, burgers, pastas, main dishes, most under $20. Decent place. It bills itself as a sports bar, but more upscale than most and definitely not a dive.

    1. short train ride away: public house on 41st and Lex (you can take the 6 train to 42nd street)

        Out of the three, this seems to be what we're looking for. Just for kicks, however, any similar suggestions..?

          Public House is really really bad. Applebees level food and rude service.

      2. Landmarc in the time warner center should fit the bill.

          It's actually a bit much -- cuisine and price-wise. Their apps are fine, but if someone was tempted to order the rib eye, it'd be a different ballgame altogether. Location would fit the bill, however.
