Hi,
I'm trying to find some restaurants that aren't too expensive. We'll be in New York for 5 nights. We don't want anything pretentious or with tiny portions. We're not interested in Sushi. So far I have...

Apizz
Bianca
Bridge Cafe
Crispo
Da Andrea
Lupa
Piccolo Angolo
The Little Owl

Thanks!

    I had a very fine dinner at Little Owl, and a decent lunch at Lupa. Your price range isn't too confining - there are scads of very good restaurants where entrees don't top $30. Check out Little Giant, also, and Peasant.

      I haven't been to any of the ones you list. If neighborhood is not an issue , and you're open to all types of cuisines, here are my suggestions:

      Seasonal

        Sorry to complicate things (I do like Crispo, Lupa, Da Andrea, Little Owl) but you have so many options at your price point, I would add:

        Cru
        Bar Blanc
        Perilla
        SD26

        and as RGR has already suggested:

        Tabla
        Scarpetta
        Aldea

          I'd recommend The Redhead.
