Restaurants Nr. Hunter College

Does anyone know of any good restaurants that are not expensive around Hunter College (68th St & Lex.) I am not picky. I go to Corrado (sp?) a lot, but I would like to get waited on. Thanks so much!

  1. Zaza on 66th and 1st ave has a great lunch special, very nice food, and a charming back patio.

    1. Sel & Poivre, on Lex, b/t 64th & 65th Sts., is a charming French bistro with very good food. Their prix-fixes are well-priced.

            I went to this restaurant yesterday for the first time. It was lovely, warm, pleasant, well lit, decent wine list, very nice moderate prices and excellent new york strip au roquefort sauce! The maitre'd was annoying, but everything else was perfect!

        2. Fig & Olive on Lex, or Follow me Caffe on Lex/62nd that has very good crepes and sandwiches

          1. Cafe Mingala (Burmese) on 72 St. and 2 Ave. - $6 lunch specials everyday!
