I'm looking for suggestions for approximately $25 per person and delicious within a 5 block radius.
Being able to reserve would be good. I was thinking of walking over to FoodParc, but reviews have been scathing. I'm at a loss in this neighborhood at this price range. Sorry for the short notice, but I always get elected. Any help would be appreciated.

    If it wasn't for the budget, I'd go to I Trulli for their great Sunday Supper, but it's $45 pp. Blue Smoke might work if everyone drinks moderately. Indian is a good inexpensive option, and there is a lot in that neighborhood, including saravanaas and tiffin wallah.

      If you're willing to walk a few more blocks, maybe Pipa in ABC Carpet would work? I know they serve brunch until 5pm on Sundays and it's a big space. I've also heard great things about ABC Kitchen.

        Primehouse does brunch until 4pm and is in your price range if you stick to the brunch menu.

        Is it for this Sunday (or even next)? It's still restaurant week. I would guess that 3pm would still fall into the $24.07 lunch category, but that's really just a guess. Artisanal and Resto are in the area and participating in the extension.

          There are a number of places that would work. Keeping the price point that low tends to point toward various ethnic options.

          Great Sichuan, 363 3rd Ave @ 26th St., is pretty good Szechuan at attractive prices.

          Dhaba, 108 Lexington Ave. @ 26th St.) serves first rate Indian at very reasonable prices.

          Turkish Kitchen, 386 Third Ave. at 28th St., serves inventive Mediterranean food in a pleasant atmosphere.

          Dhaba definitely takes reservations. Great Sichuan probably does. Turkish Kitchen doesn't take reservations for small parties but might do so for large groups.

            I may be edging up to top of your budget, but Punch has a varied menu and that could work. Look at Craftbar brunch as well. And there is nothing wrong with the food at L'express, they have a nice brunch menu but 9 people may be too difficult there.

              thank you everyone, I am going to try Primehouse...
              There are now 11 of us, at Resto I needed to commit to a prix fixe menu that looked really good, but the menu at Primehouse looks extensive and there are no deposits or commitments necessary. That being said, Susan, I do like Punch and forgot all about it, thank you.
              I did look at Craftbar's brunch menu, it is too "interesting" for some of my out of town friends. I will totally be going there as soon as I can.

              surprised no one mentioned Artisanal.
