Reasonable restaurants around Pershing Square

Nothing fancy -- Thai, Chinese, or anything good, within a few blocks of the Biltmore (other than GCM, because there will be dinners, and they close at 6 PM). Any ideas?

      Out of those choices I believe Colori on Fig closed while the original one is a bit of a walk from Pershing.

      Gorbals has never really been all that great IMO.

      Baco is hit or miss.

      I'd personally recommend Maccheroni out of all these places.

        I'm a wino, so will walk for free corkage!!
        But you're right, for some reason I thought the original post said six blocks which what Colori is. I see that the post made mention of 6pm but said "a few blocks" which Colori is not.
        Btw I agree that Gorbals is not great.
