In search of New American- like Colicchio and Sons but less pricey

Hi everyone! Can anyone recommend an inexpensive "New American" restaurant? For example, Colicchio and Sons' menu looks like the kind of food I'm trying to find, but I'd like to find a cheaper place (entrees $10-12). Anywhere in Manhattan is fine, with a slight preference for south of 14th street.

  1. You will not find anywhere serving food in that style with entrees priced at $10-$12. Diners are more expensive than that. For food in that price range, consider Latino or Asian options.

    1. Agreed with Will. The only american food at that price are burgers.

      1. Okay, thanks, that's good to know. What is the cheapest you think I could find food in that style, then?

        1. I wouldn't describe it as being the too much like Colicchio & Sons, but for something American, market driven and not just burgers in your price range you might try Westville. They now have three locations I believe.

            How about Recette?

          2. Have you looked at the Tap Room brunch menu at Colicchio and Sons? The prices range from $10 - $16, and includes things like braised rabbit leg, duck confit, and "new american" pizzas.

              No, I was so fixated on dinner that I didn't look at the Tap Room brunch menu! Thanks for pointing that out- it is definitely a more wallet-friendly way for me to try their food.
