Affordable dinners near Grand Central Station

I'll be staying in Manhattan on business for the week on a tight expense account. Any well priced reasonable dinners available near Grand Central Station? Willing to walk 20 blocks of more if the food is worth it Prefer ethnic, good Italian and pizza, etc....

  1. What is your budget for dinner for just food (before tax and tip)? An exact dollar figure will help. $20? More? Less?

    20 short blocks is about a mile, so you do have a good number of options since you're willing to walk. There's also a number of street vendors who might work. See also

    Also you can very easily catch the 7 train out of Grand Central and have inexpensive, delicious food in Queens in about 20-25 minutes.

    Some more ideas here, looks like going west towards the NYPL or southwest to Koreatown yields more options:
