Cheap chow around midtown (57th and 7th) for dinner?

Dinner for two, both on pretty strict budgets (under $15/entree) with veggie options. Decent amosphere would be nice, would like a sit-down place. Open to all types of cuisine.

  1. Topaz for thai food. I've only had it for lunch.

    1. Whym on 9th Ave bet. 58th and 59th. Stick with the entree salads.

      1. Two options:

        Menchanko Tei -- 55 btwn 5 and 6 Avenues -- Japanese/ramen
        Bay Leaf -- 55 or 56 and 6th Avenue -- Indian

          Ramen is not a vegetarian food- as it uses meat stock. You might be able to make a dinner from the vegetarian side dishes though.

        2. La Bonne Soupe, the sweet French bistro, on 55th, b/t 5th & 6th, has lots more on the menu than just good soups.

            I adore Bonne Soupe - just go all the time :)

          2. Roberto Passon (Italian) on 9th ave. & 50th has some good pasta dishes. Pumpkin ravioli very good. It's crowded pre and post theater but at 8 pm, much better.
