Suggestions would be appreciated for a inexpensive lunch place. with a nice menu. Fine dining not expected, just something a little better than a diner.

        In Moonachie there is Segovia's (Spanish). My company has an office near there and it is always a nice treat to have a meeting there so we can stop in for Lunch.

        Piasano in Rutherford on Park Ave is very good Italian.

        I was going to tell you about the $6 lunch special at Wild Ginger in Ridgewood, it's an amazing price. But you ruled out Asian...

        Griffin's in Cresskill has a nice varied lunch menu, nice environment as well. Great patio in better weather.

          well, "inexpensive" means different things to different people, but my first thought was Bennies in Englewood. great Mediterranean food.

                  I was surprised at the quality of Maggiano's in Boston. Little did I know it was a chain. Understand there is one off Rt 4 in Hackensack. Not sure if the quality is the same from place to place, tho. And they serve family style.
