I'm still too lazy to cook so I'll be looking for inexpensive dinner spots, any neighborhood in the city. Primarily american, italian or french. Entrees less than $15.

        Hey, go to Fried Dumpling on Allen Street and at 5 for $1 you can go uptown and scalp them for twice as much and pocket the difference. In a bad economy, you need to be inventive.

      2. That sucks man. Try this. http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/567823

        1. Sorry to hear about you being laid off.

          Many of Via Emilia's pastas cost <$15. But do "splurge" at some point and get the first-rate lasagne @$16.

          La Petite Auberge offers a dinner prix-fixe for $28.50. It's 4 courses because a small green salad is always included with all main courses.
