fun, interesting, out of the ordinary?

Any suggestions for somewhere fun, casual, and out of the ordinary to have dinner? Preferably not somewhere that's hard to get a reservation at. Inexpensive, hopefully -- entrees in the $15-$20 range.

Would go anywhere, but preferably somewhere downtown - east village, west village, lower east side, chelsea...

Not chinese, indian, or sushi, but we're open to anything else: mexican, italian, american, thai, non-sushi japanese...

Sorry if this is vague, I'm really just looking for some inspiration / something new...

thanks for your help!

  1. for that amount..try something like cafe habana. no reservations..may wait a short while, but IMO, worth it.
