Budget food in Midtown West
some of my family members are visiting NY for the first time for a few days. They are staying at the Hudson Hotel (not at list price...) and are looking for places nearby to eat good food at reasonably prices, breakfasts and dinners. Any hints?
I agree with others who have suggested searching "hell's kitchen" for that neighborhood. I also recommend Meskerem (Ethiopian) on 47th near 10th Ave. In addition, if you are looking for some sweets or other Greek treats, definitely try Poseidon Bakery.

Do a search for Hell's Kitchen and you will get a ton of ideas. I like Uncle Nicks, but its a regular Greek Restaurant, not a tapas place. The ouzaria next door to the original restaurant does do a small plate format though I prefer the original. Other favorites in the area include Pam Real Thai, Wondee Siam and Casuella.
more details ... age over 60, used to European food and are afraid of the "typical" American breakfasts and dinners, are on a tight budget are open to explore international cuisine. The following experience I had once would be great for them: small Italien restaurant (8 tables) 2 choices on the menu that was a chalkboard and the food out of this world. Thanks.
