I'm meeting a picky eater who is coming in from Long Island. Any ideas of a decent place within 4-5 blocks? Not super expensive -- entrees in $20's ok. Thanks

    Uncle Nick's 8th Ave and 30th.

    Same menu as on 9th Ave and 50th St. Greek, lovely whole fish

      Not sure whether you consider this too far, but there is Terrance Brennan's restaurant Artisanal to consider. It's at 32nd & Park & is has a cheese cave!

      I second Szechuan Gourmet. I think it's 39th btwn 5th and 6th. You can also try Uncle Jack's on 9th avenue (steakhouse).
