Restaurants near Waldorf Astoria

We are staying at the Waldorf Astoria in March. Any recommendations for restaurants in the area? We like everything, but prefer something that the locals would choose. We want to experience NY. Price range up to 50pp, except for one special lunch or dinner. Please mention whether we could walk or would need a cab.
Thank you for any input!

The Waldorf is in a business district with not a lot of restaurants immediately nearby - and those that are primarily either inexpensive lunch for office workers or quite upscale. One place you might try is Django on Lexington - good and interesting food.

If you walk over to Third or Second avenue there are a lot of casuale spots for a quick bite - and a couple of nicer places. But really you'll find many more trendy restaurants if you head downtown, theater places over on Ninth Avenue and lots of neighborhood places on the upper east or west side.

I wouldn't be caught up with places just near your hotel - since in visiting tourist sights you'll be taking the subway all over the city and will want to sample a bunch of diferent neighborhoods.

If you tell us your favorite foods, budget and atmosphere (trendy, romantic, elegant?) for the special meal people can make specific recos.

You'll want to walk east to the more residential area around 2nd & 3rd Aves. Also check out Cafe St. Bart's on the south side of St. Bart's church.

Enjoy NYC!

A short cab ride north to excellent, well-reviewed restaurants:

Spigolo - Italian cuisine

Cafe d'Alsace - Alsatian, obviously

Cilantro, just a short walk or cab ride north is good.

One of NYC's best Chinese restaurants--Shun Lee Palace--is just a few blocks north on East 55th Street, between Lexington and Third Avenues.

And while you are searching I might add that jumping in a cab to different neighborhoods is affordable. Mrlou can't wait to get back to

Due which is on the Upper East Side at 1396 3rd ave for great Italian. it was recommended by one that know great neighborhood haunts.
