    Can you define "not too pricey"?

    What's your budget per person for JUST food?

    It's a pricey neighborhood, to start with...

    My usual is Ma Peche, where small dishes are $9-16 and large dishes are $16-32.

      Katsu Hama - cutlets and ramen

      Szechuan Gourmet

      Yakitori Totto

      Ma Peche - Vietnamese fusion

      Sugiyama - kaiseki

      Blue Ribbon Sushi Bar and Grill - the sushi isn't stellar but the cooked dishes are quite good

      Sushi of Gari - the west 46th street branch is about a 10-12 minute walk from Carnegie Hall

      Some people like Joe's Shanghai, Chom Chom, Lili's 57, and Tang Pavilion though I've had mixed experiences during my infrequent visits.

          Nobu 57 ( has their top chef who was one of the original chefs at Hatsuhana), Blue Ribbon has good sushi and cooked, Danji is very close to Carnegie Hall. and about 6 blocks East is Le Colonial for fancy Vietnamese.

          I especially like Tang Pavillion (Shanghai) on 55th between 5th and 6th. It's my usual place before Carnegie Hall. Delicious food, nice upscale atmosphere, and not pricey for the neighborhood.

            Not sushi, but if you like Sichuan-style food, Szechuan Gourmet has a branch at 56th St. between Broadway and 8th, and it's one of the best Sichuan places in Manhattan. Just stick to Sichuan-style dishes, none of the American-Chinese things. Though some of their vegetable dishes that might not be obviously Sichuan-style, like their bak choy sauteed with garlic, are terrific. Depending on your appetite (dishes are large), expect to spend around $25-30 person, inclusive of tax and tip.

                For sweets don't forget Kyotofu and Minamoto Kitchoan, both within walking distance.
