Modestly priced dinner in Union Square
Aldea? I was there last week, entrees range from 20-30. W. 17th, I think. Food & service were excellent. Google it, a semi-current menu is online. Have a drink at Raines Law Room after. Its right across the street.

Maxie's Grill might work not Angelo's and Maxie's Steakhouse but the Grill next door. Burger's, sandwiches and seafood if that would help you.
Angelo and Maxie's Steakhouse @ 233 Park Avenue S., New York, NY 212 - 220 - 9200.
