Can anyone suggest any good restaurants in midtown new york city that are reasonable? Somewhere around 42nd to 46th street and 3rd avenue area. Please suggest places you have actually been to or have heard good things about from friends. Price range 10-20$ a person. Please include address and/or link if possible. Thanks. From what I can tell… In the Times Square area, there are MANY places to eat. One of my favorites is Bubba Gump’s Shrimp Co. If you like the movie Forrest Gump, you’ll love this place. (Even if you don’t love the movie, the food is great) Reasonably priced for a midtown restaurant. Although this is not by 3rd Ave, nothing is too far in NYC, everything is walking distance. Take it from someone who has strolled from The Village to Penn Station.
