  1. I am a big fan of Sol-Mar not as popular as others in the area but it is excellent. The only place i go down there. If you like fish this is the place as well. Here is the website.

    1. That's a very austere budget, unless you're doing lunch...

      1. Highly recommend Seabra's Marasqueira on Madison St for seafood, especially if you sit at the bar. You won't be disappointed. Parking in the designated lot across the street with validation.

          Exactly the rec I was going to make!

          1. re: Curlz

            Your going to need more than $20. at Maraqueira. While the food is out of this world, the prices can be a little high. Even appetizers are almost $20. But worth every penny!!!

        2. When we go, we usually go to Fornos. That's a pretty low budget though, you might need something smaller and a little more low key. Hoping someone can give you a suggestion in your budget (or go for lunch)

          1. In addition to Sol Mar, you might try Coimbra, Cervezaria Portugalia or Titanic. You should be able to get a main course (generously sized) plus a glass of wine and coffee for $20 if budget is important. Not fine cuisine, but hearty, basic Portuguese stuff.
