Looking for very good/very reasonably priced dinner options for this area ~ any suggestions? Nothing fancy, just great food ~ Ethnic perhaps?

      There are two Mexican options in the area that I like: Pio Maya on 8th St (very casual, counter service) and Florencia 13 on Sullivan (sit-down, great margaritas).

      For Thai, try Galanga on W. 4th.

      There's also pizza at Arturo's.

        Provence has just reopened... I'd go there!

          Uh, didn't the poster ask for "very reasonably priced?" Though I love Po, Pearl, and Provence, they do not fit into that category. Katherine's ideas are all good: Galanga, Florencia13, Arturos. Also, I'll add to the mix a much moverlooked Indian place on Bleecker near 7th Ave: Ghandhi Cafe.

              thankyou billyeats ~ After checking out the menus of Po, Pearl and Provence, I would agree that they are out of range for what we are looking for ~ your recommendations were more of what we were asking for ~ I appreciate your feedback ~

                My first thought ... seconded. Cheap, great.

                  Head a bit further west to Hudson and Charles and there's a great pub with good food, Bayard's Ale House. It's not typically what one refers to when looking for "ethnic" but it is kind of Irish. Haha. Good, simple, hearty and cheap. Great beer selection also.

                    You could walk a few blocks north from Bleecker and go to the Stoned Crow for a great burger. 85 Washington Pl just off of 6th Ave, basement level. This is the place where the burger master of Corner Bistro now works.
                    Don't go too late or you will be overwhelmed by the NYU kids.

                      Galanga (Thai). Really good Thai for Manhattan. Pretty attractive digs for such an inexpensive restaurant.
