    "Inexpensive" means different things to different people, so of course it would be much more helpful if you would specify a price range, but if Crispo and O Mai fall into your range, they would be my recommendations.

      202 - casual chic, set inside of a clothing boutique
      green table - inside chelsea market, seats about 10 people total
      crispo - delicious tapas
      suenos - hole-in-the-wall mexican that is actually very lovely

          I recognize that this thread is almost a year old, but my gf and I went to a show at the Joyce last night (Pilobolus, wonderful) and wandered over to 9th Avenue for dinner afterwards. I had never heard of O Mai before, but it looked interesting and had a good looking crowd for almost 10pm on a Tuesday, so we stopped in. We really enjoyed it a lot. We shared the calamari salad, grilled shrimp wraps, and a shrimp and rib entree. The flavors were wonderful, the food delicious, and the bill very reasonable.

          I'm a subscriber for years and we always love Cafeteria on W17 between 6th & 7th -- comfort food at it's best!!
