Dinner near 42nd/8th for a new yorker

Hi! I have lived in the city for 8 years, but still have trouble finding a decent place to eat in the theater district. My family is coming into town and I'm in charge of finding the restaurant - here are my criteria:

Not a Tourist Trap

Laid Back

Entrees should be under $20 a person

The type of food isn't important. We are seeing a show on 42nd and 8th ave - the restaurant should be within a 10 min walk from there. Maybe Hell's Kitchen?

Can any fellow New Yorkers out there help me? Thanks!

How about Wondee Siam?

Ive also had some great meals at Bali Nusa Indah

one of my favorite Mexican places is in the theater district, but it can be loud, so not sure if you would call it laid back. Toloache on 50th and 8th. Their trio of guac is excellent as are the margaritas, and the shrimp dish, and the tacos, and the Mexican paella

Just went to Elsewhere and LOVED it! Extensive and interesting wine list, courteous service and some really delicious food. Be sure to try the Pig's *ss Sandwich!

Just ate at Basilica last week before the theatre. Look at their Pre- Theater deal.It is a little more than what you want to pay but is a great deal.

Two to three blocks over, you will find Tony's Di Napoli. Excellent italian food, quick service, great drinks. Tasty food overall.

The Chelsea Grill in Hell's Kitchen was terrific. Great food/service
