      A few of the best restaurants in Union Square nyc that are more affordable: Pete's Tavern (18th and Irving) and Old Town Bar (18th west of Park Avenue South) - both are bars with a 19th-century, old-fashioned feel. During warmer months you can eat outside at Pete's Tavern. 71 Irving (Irving between 18th and 19th) - a small, homey coffee shop Republic (Union Square West) - noodles. Loud but good The Grey Dog Coffee (University Place) - good coffee and giant sandwiches, along with beer, wine and desserts. Cafe Medina (17th between Union Square West and Fifth) - Great sandwiches, basically a deli - good for lunch takeout Lillies (17th between Union Square West and Fifth) - A Victorian bar, they give you a free beer with your first checkin Stand (12th Street) - Burgers Piola (12th Street) - Many varieties of thin-crust pizza Dos Toros (4th Avenue) - California-style burritos Num Pang (12th and University) - Takeout, great Cambodian sandwiches

      Republic 37 Union Sq West It can get pretty loud in there, but I've never been disappointed by the food.

      Old Town Bar - 45 East 18th, hands down one of the best restaurants in union square nyc. Great burgers, fun bar, after work crowd, middle of the day crowd - the booths are also especially good for important conversations. Also, you can't beat the old school style - built in 1892 and mostly still the same. http://www.oldtownbar.com/

      many of the restaurants around there are super expensive so if you're looking for a more affordable option still with great food and drinks taks a short walk down to the 8th Street Wine Cellar. 28 W 8th St (between 5th Ave & Mac Dougal St) A cozy gem of a wine bar with great food too. $18 bottles of wine for happy hour until 7pm!
