Cheapish Dinner on Friday in Manhattan

j

I'm looking for a good date place for 2 in Manhattan for Friday night. We're looking for something that is about $15 or so per entree. Italian, Mexican, American are all good. I'm trying to stay away from Chinese, Indian, Middle Eastern, etc. Any suggestions??

      How about Frank, L'il Frankie's, or Cafe Asean? http://www.menupages.com/restaurantdetails.asp?areaid=0&restaurantid=2416&neighborhoodid=0&cuisineid=0 http://www.menupages.com/restaurantdetails.asp?areaid=0&restaurantid=2473&neighborhoodid=0&cuisineid=0 http://www.menupages.com/restaurantde...

          Dean in Tribeca you can get plenty of food for $15. The pizza is good and the pasta with chicken and sausage I recommend

          Any neighborhood is fine. Preferably west side, but it doesn't matter.

              Cacio e Vino...entrees are a little higher than that but they also have pizzas and great antipasti, so it's sort of doable in that range and it's a charming place...
