After arriving in NY from Los Angeles I'll be staying at the Ace Hotel on June 13-17th with my girlfriend. When we finally check-in I imagine we'll be tired and just in the mood to go to dinner and maybe wander.
What's a nice casual sit-down restaurant near the restaurant where we can each eat for under $15?
The hotel is located on W 29th St. between 5th and Broadway.
While I'm on the subject of areas to eat near the hotel, are there any other places I might want to hit at some point over my stay within walking distance?
