Dinner suggestion near Rice to Riches?

We are headed to NY this weekend from Baltimore and tops on our list is dessert at Rice to Riches. We hear it is to die for. Any suggestions of where to have dinner beforehand? There will be 5 of us, dressed casual (coming from a Yankees game)..we arent interested in going to Lombardis (although we want to do that another time). Looking for a cool place, not terribly expensive. One person in our group is a pretty simple eater (not very adventerous).

  1. I would say peasant, but i think you may be a little too dressed down and it can get a bit pricey. last time i was walking there two tourists stopped me asking for directions to bread - I haven't been there but it seems to meet your parameters and it's like a block from rice to riches.

      1. get a reservation to La Esquina, fun, cool vibe, not too pricey.

        1. Cafe Habana. There is a take out section with self seating and a full service restaurant.

            isn't that place impossible to get a seat at? whenever i walk by it's always really crowded.

          2. You could hit Ed's Lobster bar for great lobster rolls and fries. Decent beer and wine selection, casual place.
