Good eats near Hunter College?

Hi , I am a grad student from Rutgers taking a class at Hunter College in Manhattan (Lexington and 68th). I don't know this area of the city well, does anyone have any rec's for a place for a yummy dinner for a grad student on a budget? Thanks!

  1. Here's a semi- recent thread (with some other semi-recent threads mentioned within) to get you started.

    1. Grand Sichuan on 2nd Ave near 55th St. is not far, and it's good and not expensive.

      1. It might not always conform to your budget, sc, but the public dining room at the Asia Society [70th & Park] has a very creative, appealing menu in a delightful space. Endear yourself to a faculty member at Hunter and eat like a ... i'dunno, like a Buddha!

        1. I've read several positive reviews for Szechuan Chalet on 2nd Ave bw 72/73rd, and I really enjoy the white slice at Delizia on 1st Ave bw 73/74th.
