    Cafe Mogador is pretty good, cheap, and I like the atmosphere a lot

        Kuma Inn - terrific asian tapas

            I second Cafe Mogador too, but they don't take reservations.

            $20/person - that's tough. But I'd second Kuma Inn, also you may want to try Haveli's (Indian place on Second Avenue) or Tsampa (on East Ninth) but I haven't been to Tsampa in a long time. Also Kenka on St. Mark's. If you're willing to pay a few more bucks for better food, try Mermaid Inn on Second Avenue.

              Tsampa is definitely cheaper, pretty solid but not great, cute, casual atmosphere.
