I need to meet a friend for an early dinner (and maybe drinks) somewhere between the 50's and Penn Station on the west side, and i'm not super-familiar with the area. So far, the options I've come up with are: Bar Room @ the Modern, HK, Shimizu, Yakitori Totto, Taboon. Sushi or small dishes might work best (nothing too heavy), and we'd have to be able to walk in on a weekday night. Less than $40 per person would be ideal. Any recommendations or other ideas?
