Any suggestions? Need dinner before a movie. Would like to stay under $20 for entrees. Staying away from Republic and Chat N Chew due to mixed reviews....Can be close to Union Square, Flatiron, etc. I'm willing to walk

      Via Emilia, on 21st St., b/t PAS & B'way. Delicious homemade pastas with lasagna being the standout. No reservations unless you're a party of 6 (and I think that's only on Monday and Tuesday). However, if you will be eating early, you should be able to get a table without a long wait. Cash only.

            Old Town Bar isn't known for its cuisine, but for old New York atmosphere, it's wonderful.

              What about Punch? 913 Broadway. I have never tried it, but when I asked people for their favorite restaurants that were rarely mentioned on Chowhound, someone gave it a rave review. And most entrees are under $20. http://punchrestaurant.com/

                  i would just go to republic. It's cheap and satisfying if not "authentic" or "amazing" food. Plus the space even after all these years is great.
