Budget Eating in Midtown Manhattan

Jump to last reply

We will be visiting New York City for the first time for 5 nights in the second week of June, staying at Radio City Apartments. I've done a lot of research on restaurants here and on Menu Pages and have selected a few places to eat, but I'd like some additional opinions.

My son (18) and I will eat just about anything, but my wife and daughter (15) are pickier, especially nothing spicy. Our typical fare for eating out is Steaks, Mexican and Italian, but I am going to expand our horizons while in NYC. I would like to keep the cost under $30 per person, with no alcohol, appetizers, dessert or coffee.

Please comment on my below choices and/or offer alternatives. My only requirement is that we use a knife and fork to eat (i.e. not pizza or hot dogs). Thanks for your help.

Italian - Trattoria Trecolori
American/Irish - P.J. Moran's
French - Pigalle
Spansih - Meson Sevilla
