Affordable dinner on the UWS

Looking for a casual cafe, restaurant from 55th to 75th on the West Side. Don't really want to spend more than $15-20 a person (not including drinks, tax, tip) Any cuisine is fine.

  1. I recommend the following:
    - Le Pain Quotidien (one on 72nd St asnd one on 66th St).. exactly the environment you're looking for. Cafeish, with table seating. The only thing is that sometimes there's a line to be seated if it's busy. I don't think they take reservations, but you can check.

    - Hummus Place (amazing chain as well... the hummus is incredible an cheap) 75th & Amsterdam. Their sangria is one of the best I've ever had (they infuse it with anise). It's much better than the Noosh. I've been to both... Hummus Place is def. better.
