What's good near the Landmark Sunshine movie theater?

I'm looking for an inexpensive-to-moderate ($75 for two, max), casual restaurant near the Landmark Sunshine. We like all cuisines, a bar would be a plus, but mostly we like low-key, un-cramped, places. TIA

  1. Katz.
    The pizza place next to Katz is pretty good, and there's some stuff on Ludlow nearby.

    1. It would help tremendously if you told us where the theater was located. Thanks.

      2. Prune. Inoteca. 2 places on Orchard, I think Georgia BBQ and Somethin French Bistro.

          The two on Orchard are probably Georgia's East Side BBQ and Zuccola French Diner. All the suggestions sound good. Thanks a lot.

            That's Zucco Le French Diner.


            Second The Elephant, and add Orchard & Lucien.

        2. Elephant - a thai place w/ interesting cocktails; on 1st St across Houston from Landmark.

          1. Agree about the Elephant. And so close, just across that little park to the north of the theater. Also love Frankie's on Clinton St. and Little Giant on Orchard St. Both are small with cool, individualistic menus.

            1. I am going to Landmark movie theater for a 7:30pm show tonight. Anyone have a suggestion for a place nearby where I can grab some food "to go" to bring in to the theatre?

                You're planning to eat in the theater?

                  The $75 couple has gone to the movies and hopefully eaten already. (see date)

                    Really, it sounds like the place you guys want(ed) is (was) Veselka. It's a great Eastern-European diner. Nice sit-down place, but you really can't describe it as a diner. It's basically a restaurant with some ethnic stuff (and by 'some ethnic stuff' I mean kickass pierogen) and good upscale diner food (pancakes at 5am, anyone?). It's on the corner of 2nd and 12th, I believe. Sometimes it is crowded, though.

                    I ended up grabbing food at Bereket, a Turkish kebob place on Houston. I was able to bring the food into the theater, which was necessary because I was very tight on time. The food was actually quite tasty and I would certainly return (at least for take out).

                  2. L'il Frankies on 1st Avenue, 1 block north of the theater. A quick walk across Houston. Excellent food, menu offerings, and service. Thin crust pizza and great other choices of pasta and entrees, sides, and desserts. Have dined here numerous times in the past 3 years, with parties large and small, at lunch and at dinner, and the food has consistently been great!
