Under the radar?

This year I had some great meals at places that don't seem to get much attention on Chowhound, like:

The Wright
Saluggi's pizza

I'd love to hear about your favorite spots that fly under the CH radar. Bonus points for moderate prices.

      I would go with 'Ino over Inoteca, as I've found it to have better execution
      I would also throw Marc Forgione into the mix; while I wouldn't say it is my favorite restaurant in the city, I do think it deserves more mention than it gets.

        For Iron Chef Fans, Marc Forgione is serving his winning tasting menu for $89, through the end of the month.

          Wow! I am surprised, as it has always been packed when I am in there. Sad to see a high quality Mexican spot leave after so many years.

        1. Nuela has not been mentioned much. It's upper moderate in price, but there is a 30% off deal being offered on Village Vines. Even without a discount I think it is worth it for the excellent food.

          1. Four of us had a great meal last night at Hundred Acres, sweetened with a Blackboard Eats 30% coupon. I use this all the time, anyone who lives here is foolish not to take advantage. Also have been loving Mermaid Oyster Bar but I am not a fan of their other places.

              1. Yes! My BF and I love Fish. We live right around the corner, but still, the oysters (and other dishes) are great.
