Fun, funky dinner Union Square?

Hey all,

I need a fun, funky, cheap to middle-priced (anything short of expensive) place to have dinner with a friend before a movie tonight. Any suggestions?

  1. Chat n Chew on 16th Street between Union Square West and 5th Avenue. Meets all your requirements and the food is good to boot. It gets crowded, though, so plan accordingly.

      1. You should try out the places on University place below 14th street. There is El Cantinero, Cedar Tavern, spice cafe (not sure about the name is on the north/west corner of I think is 10th street). I would pass Patsy's because it was not great when I went there.
