Good, Reasonable Place Near St. Marks...

hungry329 Jul 25, 2007 08:01 PM

Any suggestions for a dinner near St. Marks? Not too expensive, any type of food. Have already tried Holy Basil and of course Mermaid Inn, Hearth, Una Pizza Napoletana, Momofuku, and S'Mac. Any other gems in the area?

    Banjara on 6th st. / 1st ave. or Brick Lane Curry house on 6th (both Indian).

    Cafe Rakka on St. Mark's & 1st for falafel.

    Frank's on 2nd for Italian.

        La Palapa
        Mancora for yummy Peruvian (amazing tomalies)

          I'm kinda wishy-washy on Mogador - great prices, fun atmosphere, the food is...ok.

          I adore Il Bagatto or Frank (ridiculous atmosphere) for Italian and Yakiniku West for awesome Japanese bbq at the table (get the short rib!!)

            I love Frank, but would sooner go to Li'l Frankie's or Supper, just because they're bigger and have more tables.

            Curve ball: How about Borobudur? I went there about two years ago and enjoyed it.

            Kebab House 1st Avenue. Dumpling Man on St Mark's, Ukrainian Center on 2nd between St Mark's and 9th St, Sea on 2nd Ave-4th St, for a treat walk over to Nikky's Vietnamese on 2nd and A.

            So much value for so little cost.
