Fantastic meal for two under $50?

I gravitate towards the same places, so I'm interested in hearing your suggestions. I'm a great cook and I usually spend a huge part of my food budget on good ingredients for home, so I'm cheap when it comes to dining out. What are your favorite places for a great meal for two for less than $50? We don't drink alcohol and usually order two entrees and either an appetizer or dessert, sometimes both. We enjoy all types of cuisine and prefer small, family-owned, fairly quiet places. Thanks!!

      Similarly, you can feast for $50 at Nam Phuong in South Philly (11th & Washington). I think it is better than Vietnam and it is also cheaper.
