Near the Film Forum, but *current*

efdee Jun 26, 2008 03:48 PM

My search turned up posts that were at least four years old. Shouldn't there be an expiration date, for goodness sakes?

Anyway, I would appreciate current recommendations for a moderately priced ($30 pp) dinner for two near the Film Forum. We like all cuisines but prefer adult-friendly restaurants with good drinks. TIA

    Does that price include drinks? Cornelia Street Cafe, on Cornelia Street, is decent, though not great, You might be able to have a decent meal at Po there for that price as well if you choose carefully.

      No, $30 pp is too low for dinner, drinks, etc. I'm not rigid about the cost of the meal but would prefer to keep it simple and find a casual place in the neighborhood with tasty food. TIA

        I'm also a big fan of Pearl Oyster Bar on Cornelia Street - we usually just go at 6 pm when they open so there is no wait. Nice small selection of wines and beer - not sure that they have a full bar, though.

      Agree w/Cornelia St. Cafe and Po. You could also do Lupa, 'ino, and Jane on that budget.

        I would second 'ino on Bedford st. It's right around the corner from Film Forum. Good wine. Yummy panini.

        Ditch Plains.

          Rhong-Tiam on Laguardia. It's delicious, very reasonable and a 5-10 minute walk to the theater.
