yes, i have done a search. yes, i have done a search.

i am specifically asking if anyone can suggest any decent restaurants we can walk to from Lincoln Center -- walking west perhaps? -- with $10 to $15 entrees. (concert over at app. 7 PM).

i read about Sapphire, which has vegetarian dishes in that range -- not sure how big the dishes are.

also read about the tapas place, Cafe Ronda. we are a group of 4 or 5, so this could work -- but again, not sure how much food the dishes consist of.

      i'd second the ronda recommendation. sapphire is good, but when you round out the meal with breads and chutneys and such, it can get a little pricier. and the non-vegetarian dishes are, imo, kinda overpriced.

      Cafe Ronda is my rec...dishes vary in size but a lot of them are larger (more like raciones) size than tiny tapas...

      my fav items: lamb meatballs (5 small meatballs in tomato sauce), roasted cauliftower (a pretty large portion), shepherd salad (quite large), and sauteed spinach w/ pinenuts/raisins...the above four orders would be very hearty amt of food for two people...in a group of 4 or 5 people, you could order those items plus maybe four or so other dishes and you'd have a nice little feast for the budget you mention...
