A Toronto Chowfriend is staying at the Helmsley Medical Tower, and wants reasonable but good places to dine alone in the above neighborhood.
And, are there any reasonably priced but very good places in the region from 58th to 45th, between 9th and Madison? I know that's a big area, and there are some incredible restos there. But, she is looking for simple, not overpriced, good food where she can eat alone. Cafe Boulud is too much. Isabella's across from the Omni Berkshire is too little. Something in between.
