I have 2 good friends coming into town this weekend. I'm looking for an inexpensive place for dinner in the midtown-ish area. Some more details:
1. We will be going to the Met that evening so anything between Times Square and the Met (westside or eastside) would be great. I'd even be willing to go further south if needed.
2. Not sure if it's possible but I'd love to take them to a place that has some "ambiance" if possible and not a tourist trap.
3. Looking for entrees to ranges from $8-$12.
4. Not italian, chinese or korean food.
Thanks! I look forward to your responses.
