West side question from a former New Yorker

bankcello | Jun 12, 2009 10:43 AM

I used to live in Manhattan and knew my way around restaurants. However it has been over thirty years since I have eaten there.

I will be visiting Manhattan to audition for "Who Wants to be a Millionaire". The audition is at 2:45, so I thought I might have lunch. I will be coming in by train so Korean restaurants in the Penn Station area come to mind, but I wonder if there are any other suggestions. If there are any that have particularly nice "little dishes" at lunch, I would like to hear about them.

The audition is on West 66th street, on the park block. I don't want to spend a great deal on lunch. I looked at the menu at the nearby Picholine and found it much too pricey for me. Any suggestions in the neighborhood would be welcome, or has non-ethnic food in New York gone beyond the budget of a frugal Trentonite.

Thanks for any advice.
