Cheap, healthy dinner rec's for Chelsea/Midtown West
Meeting a friend for an early, easy dinner Thursday night. She needs to eat close to Penn Station to grab a train home and we are both pretty unfamiliar with the neighborhood. We want cheap, but healthy food. Parameters: it doesn't have to be fancy, though I'd prefer something nicer than glorified take-out, and she's not a huge fan of Chinese food. Any suggestions? The only place I've found with a slapdash search is Simple Kitchen (at 19th & 5th Ave), which seems fine, but might be more a market than cafe. Does anyone have any other suggestions for something farther north? Any insight to Simple Kitchen?
