Lunch Below 14th St. for $65 or Less

ballernight Jun 19, 2008 08:06 AM

Hi Chowhounders! This summer my company has provided me with the opportunity to go to lunch twice a week at any restaurant below 14th street. Our budget is $65 per person (including tax and tip). I'm looking to try the best food out there. Any and all suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    Try otto; food is fantastic and 65/pp will get you a lot!
    If available when you get there, sit at the bar and eat...

        I second Perry Street. Their set price lunch is the perfect amount of food, a wide selection, and a bargain at $24. (You'll be well under even with a few glasses of wine, coffee and tip.)

            Gotham, yes, I forgot about that one. Good idea.

                is it $65 for the whole week or per meal?

                i'm also assuming since it's on your office you won't be ordering too many drinks!

                i tried to cover some price ranges, types of food, regions, etc. also there are only so many 3 course meals you can have so some are simple but good eats.

                i'd recommend off the top of my head: noodle bar, gotham bar and grill, caracas, barrio chino, katz, balthazar, clinton street baking co., la esquina, ruby's, cafe habana, grey dog, 'ino, westville, e.u., public, pylos, cornelia street cafe, artichoke pizza (nowhere to sit though!), cafecito, blue ribbon bakery and taim.

                for a group otto would be fun with all of the small plates you could try.
