I'll be in NYC from Christmas until New Year's, and need some advice about where to eat. I'm looking for places relatively close to Times Square, although I will be doing the touristy ventures to Little Italy, etc.
My hotels will be on 31st and 45th, so that's kind of the geographic area I'm working with. I'm looking for both kick back lunch places and one or two more formal dinners, although I don't have the budget to break more than $30 a head.
Some things I'm looking for specifically:
steakhouse unique to NYC; not a chain
Quick to go places
A mix of touristy and "hidden gems" would be most appreciated. Thanks in advance for all your help!
