Best dinner around w57th and 9th ave

I'll be in town with my Father and daughter in August. I'm looking for a consistantly good restaurant in the area with a lively atmosphere that is not more than $30.oo for an entree. We are up for anything so long as it is good. My daughter also wants to find the best pizza in the area.Dinner is for a Sunday night. And my Dad is looking for good coffee in the am. Any help I can get from you guys would be much appreciated.

  1. My pick would be Nougatine-not sure if it meets the "lively" need, but it is usually pretty full and buzzy...

        Isnt Brooklyn Diner right on 57th street... Thats a pretty good place... gets very busy though

          Disagree on Brooklyn Diner. Food is fine, but crazy expensive for what it is. For example:

          Bacon cheeseburger -- $17.00
          Hot dog -- $17.95
          Tunafish sandwich -- $17.50

          It's near my office and occasionally I am dragged there for lunch. Never get out for under $30 per person.

    2. Whym on 9th Av. between 57th and 58th. Get the meatloaf. Quite hip but not loud and in your price range.
