From the NY Times . . .

Joe's Shanghai

Chinese | inexpensive

Joe's Shanghai, the best known of Chinatown's Shanghai soup-bun spots, has opened a branch in midtown.

24 W 56th St

Midtown West

(212) 333-3868

New York Times Rating: (Very Good)

New York Noodle Town

Chinese | inexpensive

It doesn't look like much, but the kitchen turns out some of the best Hong Kong cooking in Chinatown.

28 1/2 Bowery

Chinatown

(212) 349-0923

New York Times Rating: (Very Good)

Grand Sichuan

Chinese | inexpensive

The best Sichuan food in Chinatown is served in a spartan storefront setting.

I agree with Little Poland and others mentioned by shasharoon, nyc10025, et al.

With all due respect, don't bother with Family Restaurant in Queens.

For good "red sauce" italian - with a bit of a show! Try Il Vagabondo - it's on 62nd St between 1st & 2nd and has your standard Italian pasta, parmagean dishes - most under $20 for entree's, but you can split a pasta order and a salad and come in under $20 - and there's bocce ball being played in one room! Type in Il Vagadono into your search engine and you should get there web pages ... it's something you don't see too often outside of Italy.

Ta. MMM!
