Any chance of a relatively inexpensive, yummy lunch near the Guggenheim?
Planning to visit finally - live 30 minutes away, and one of my favorite museums, but haven't taken the chance to go in years! I recognize that's an expensive area, but is there any chance of finding delicious food - any type, but especially some type of ethnic would be great - that's under $15.00 per person (not including drinks or tip). I'm happy to walk out of the area a bit. Outdoor seating would be a plus, but I know I'm asking a lot here...
If you're willing to walk to 2nd Ave and 80th St (or take the bus over) you can go to Cascabel Taqueria, which is one of my favorites.

Buddha BBeeQ, a small, family owned and operated homestyle Korean restaurant on 2nd Ave between 91-92 is a good choice. They have lunch specials well within your budget, and it's a sweet friendly place with good food.

There are a couple of French bistros -- Le Paris and Pascalou -- around the corner on Madison where, if you order carefully (particularly salads and sandwiches), you could stay within your range. Both are small and charming and have an outside table or two.

+1 for Cascabel. you've also got:
- Hummus Kitchen on 2nd Ave
- Chennai on 1st Ave
- Beyoglu on 3rd Ave
so you have several types of ethnic :)
i love the Guggenheim. enjoy the day!

Not ethnic, but good: Corner Bakery, Yura on Madison and Church of Heavenly Rest Cafe. All very close to the Guggenheim.

the UES location is a fine room - much better than their UWS spot. for $15pp, a couple could share a chicken, yucca frita and an avocado salad, and leave quite satisfied. i would say that it meets the OPs requirements of nearby, inexpensive and ethnic. i wouldn't hesitate to send someone there considering the budget.
Thank you - I think we're not up for Mexican this time...Le Paris seems nice but just slightly too pricey by the time all is said and done...everything does sound great though-thanks again
Deciding between Naruto Ramen and Hummus Kitchen I think...the ramen would be a carb load, but it sounds so good!
