Place to eat near the Morgan: Madison & 36 St.

We want to have an early, simple dinner prior to a performance at the Morgan Thurs. evening. Would like somethig close by-- Curry Hill is a little too far. Would like something inexpensive ($25. p.p., not including drinks or tax, or less), but good. Could be ethnic (Indian, Middle Eastern, Chinese, Italian, etc. Not Japanese or Korean) or American. Thanks for any suggestions.

    1. Szechuan Gourmet on 39th Street.

      1. The Morgan's little restaurant is nice - if it's open for dinner.

          We want to look at the Surrealist exhibit before the show, and the museum will be open to us just at 6, so we need to eat early- around 5.

        2. Nanoosh would work. And the Korean BBQ restaurants on West 35th - like HanGawi, Madangsui and Cho Dang Gol - offer many menu items in your price range.

            Oops - I missed the "Not" in front of Japanese or Korean. Sorry!

          2. Byblos on 28 St and Madison has excellent Middle Eastern food.
            Rare on Lex and 37th has good food in your budget.
            Mapo Tofu or Hunan Manor across the street (40 and Lex)have excellent Chinese
