Good food around 42nd and 2nd ave-Dinner and breakfast.

I'm looking for good food around 42nd and 2nd Ave. Not italian, and not sushi (I love it, but the person I'm traveling with is not into it).

Since we're doing something fairly expensive another night, we're looking for a place that costs no more than around $50 per person. This can include wine or not. We would prefer a place that is open later, on Thursday nights as we are arriving for dinner probably around 1130 or so.

Does a decent place like this in this area even exist?

Also, I'm looking for places to have breakfast in the same area. I like eggs and bacon just a much as anything fancy, so diner-type places are good. I am an early riser, so breakfast will likely be no later than 9am, and I am looking for places with earlier hours. I also want somewhere with a decent cup of coffee; strong but NOT Starbucks.

Thanks and you've all been incredibly helpful thus far.

Lastly, I have read with interest about the Grand Central Oyster bar. I would like to try their oysters rockefeller. Are they worth a visit, and is their other food decent enough that a non-oyster-afficionado can find something good?
