New York has thousands of good restaurants - many of them quite inexpensive. As a general rule you will do better (in terms of $) in a more residentail neighborhood (because many New Yorkers work so much they eat out on a regular basis and don't want to spend big bucks every night) than in more touristy areas.

However, if you tell us the types of cuisine you are interested in and give budget guidelines I'm sure people can make some specific suggestions.

Also, you may want to consult Zagat for reviews and menupages,com for a preview of the actual restaurant menus.

I'm spending some time trying to think how to make this post NOT sound rude. But. . .
I could tell you weren't from the US or you probably wouldn't be staying at the Milford Plaza. What agency booked you there? If you search here for that hotel you will see the most incredible number of posts ranting about how it is the worst possible place to stay in the theatre district, but apparently it is filled by tour agencies -- mainly in the UK -- who book it to unsuspecting tourists. Is it too late to change? If it is costing you only $49 to $69 US a night, then you probably can't do any better, but otherwise. . .

Now the reason I bring that up, is that it makes it appear that you are totally looking for "cheap" since that's what your hotel is, but maybe I'm wrong. Mind telling us how much you feel comfortable paying for a meal? I stayed in an apartment only a block away from there for a total of two months last year, eating out every meal, so I'm pretty familiar with the restaurants in the neighborhood. Genrally speaking if you go just one block to the west along 9th Avenue in that same general area (43rd to about 50th Streets) you will find a multitude of good and inexpensive neighborhood restaurants.

You won't be far from 46th Street, Restaurant Row, full of reasonably priced restaurants. The Westin Times Square, about a block away, has a Shula steakhouse and a nice Sushi bar.

You'll have lots of choices. The hotel is very centrally located. Have a great time in NY.
