Inexpensive Dinner in West Village

AndyDoodle Apr 14, 2009 08:50 AM

Meeting a friend for dinner in the West Village/Greenwich Ville area and wanna go somewhere we can sit-down, but not spend a boatload. feeling the tax pinch... any suggestions? I've been to Pepe Verde and Tartine a bunch, so anything else you like?

    Cuisine preferences? Price/person? Thanks.

      Any cuisine really, other than maybe Chinese, had that yesterday. Aiming for around $20 per person, tops

          Arturo's for pizza. Rhong Tiam for Thai. Grand Sichuan (I know you said you had that yesterday, but to me Chinese food is good enough to have every day :).

        I recently tried Spunto on Carmine and it was great! Affordable, big portions, nice place.

          Westville is very good. Casual but the food is solid. There is also a deal at Smith restaurant in West Village for a whole roasted chicken for 2 people for $35. Includes side of veggies and polenta. I also saw that La Carbonara has very reasonable menu.

          I go to Marumi all the time. It's a small Japanese place on La Guardia. The sushi is just ok, but I really like their udon noodles. It's really well-priced...always less than $20 pp.

              I think Malatesta is inexpensive, with good Italian food, too.
