Visiting NY


I hope you can help me. I´m visiting NY for one week and Im staying in the area around 48th St.& Lexington. Are there any places in that greater area, where I can have breakfast or dinner without burning my whole budget ?

  1. Requests for that neighborhood come up from time time as there are plenty of mid-market hotels there. Here are some threads asking the same or similar:

    1. Dock's has decent seafood and is not overly expensive.

      1. Check out midtown lunch for budget ideas. Most places reviewed would be open for breakfast and dinner too.

        1. It's a short walk to:
          Scotty's Diner on the West side of Lex bet 39 & 40 makes a nice inexpensive breakfast.
          If you like bagels:
          Bagel Express on Lex and 40th makes a nice bagel but I prefer Ess-A-Bagel on 3rd and 50th or Vic's Bagel Bar on 3rd bet 37 and 36th
          If you like Asian food there are three places we like:
          Phoenix Garden
          Mapo Tofu
          Hunan Manor
          Rare on Lex and 37th has great burgers, ribs etc and is a little bit fancy but not too expensive
          Duke's on 3RD and 37th for down home comfort food
          El Rio Grande above Duke's has some great Tex Mex
