My husband and I are coming to NYC midweek. Staying near Carnegie hall.
Need suggestions for dinner Wed. within walking distance.
Pre-theater Thurs and Fri.
Like most cuisines--food more important than ambience--
Prices less than Per Se!
Thanks in advance.

    Price wise "less than per se" leaves every restaurant in the city except maybe Masa

      Wednesday:

      thegforceny's suggestions are good, I'd also add Quality Meats or Quality Italian

      See also Restaurants Near Carnegie Hall:

      For pre-theatre on Thurs and Fri, it highly depends upon:
      - theatre location
      - price range per person, before tax, tip, wine/drinks
      - curtain time (7pm vs 8pm) as Thursday curtain is sometimes earlier than Friday curtain but not always

      Dinner at Per Se costs $295pp (service included).

      What's your REAL budget?

          Thursday I would choose something pretty close to the theatre for a 5pm reservation. The 7pm curtains can be tough sometimes, you have a bit more wiggle room with the 8pm curtain. Some restaurants don't open until 5:30 for dinner.

        In addition to the other excellent recommendations, you should consider Betony on W. 57 St.
