Going to be in NYC for a TV show taping. Looking for a casual place for lunch in the area.
Thinking maybe thin crust pizza/salad with a glass wine.
Trying to stay 20pp before tax/tip
Can be south of 66th st as far down as 50th st.
There will be 2 or 3 people

    If you are willing to go a few blocks north you could have pizza at Patsy's on 74th between Colubmus and Central Park West.

      Pizza Arte on 55th between 5th and 6th or Don Antonio on 50th between 8th and 9th both have Neapolitan pizza (prefer the pizza at DA), with a Margherita and a glass of wine you'll be looking a little closer to 26-28 PP.

        Landmarc and Bouchon Bakery at the Time Warner Center. Le Pain Quotidien or Cafe Luxembourg is on West 70th Street. Rosa Mexicano on West 62nd. Sapphire for Indian

          Except for Bouchon Bakery and Le Pain Quotidien, it's not easy to keep it to $20/pp at the rest of these places, especially with a glass of wine. Same with Salumeria Rossi.

            Yes, quite right! Even with a large water it may prove difficult to stay within $20. Sorry

          The Smith right across the street from Lincoln Center and you can sit outside. If you really want pizza, share a large pizza at Fiorellos and again sit outside. It is right next door to The Smith.

            Try American Table in the lobby of Alice Tully Hall.

              Gina La Fornanina (72nd/Amsterdam)
              Salumeria Rossi (72nd/Amsterdam)

              Osteria Cotta (Columbus 84th/85th) - better than the above but farther from 66th..

                Salumeria Rossi is excellent, but it could easily go over that budget.

                  I think it would be very difficult for it not to. And it's actually Rosi, in case anyone's doing a search.

                  Gina La Forn is a great low cost suggestion with sidewalk dining. I like their pizza also.

                  Weekday or weekend?

                  Price range? What's your budget before tax, tip, any wine/drinks?

                  Preferred cuisines?

                  Number of people in your party?
