Seeking: Quick pre-Mark Morris dinner

The MMDG's current performance schedule has a starting time of 7:30 at the MM Dance Center across from BAM. Where can we get a quick, wholesome, inexpensive meal withing walking distance of the Dance Center, at 6 PM?
pequena on south portland between lafayette and dekalb is tasty and i think they have veggie options.
otherwise, for really cheap and tasty, though low on atmosphere, there's very tasty falafel on atlantic just off of 4th ave on the south side of the street (i forget the name but its the only falafel joint near the corner). a bit less of a walk.
Stir It Up: Caribbean with a some vegetarian (and a lot of fish/shellfish) options. They are just across Atlantic Ave from Mai, which is very good but only has one vegetarian entrée (but again lots seafood ones). Both are quite close to MMG. Don't remember any veg choices at Thomas Beisl, but they probably do have one or two. They are used to getting people out in time for performances.
Vegetarian Palate 258 Flatbush Ave (Prospect Pl/St Marks), B’lyn 718- 623-8808. Think seitan and tofu skins. Asian with a few American inspired dishes thrown in (like tofurkey dinner). It's 8 blocks up Flatbush Ave (away from Manhattan Bridge). Maybe not quite so close but worth the trip.
We took the suggestion and chose Mai. We enjoyed our meal, finding the food tasty and inventive. Staff very friendly. Prices fair. Three minute walk from the Mark Morris Dance Center. Oh, and the performance was magnificent.
