14th St. Faves?

Hey Hounds,

I often have to stock up on supplies for work at Guitar Center (14th between 5th and 6th), but I'm always at a loss about where to go for delicious, cheap-ish grub around there, with the exception of Num Pang. I know about the more pricy and excellent places (Tocqueville, etc.), but I'm looking for a quicker, less expensive meal.

What are your favorites?

  1. Artichoke pizza is down near 1st ave, but you could always hop on the L if you don't want to walk.

        2. Grey Dog is great. I also like Dos Toros on 4th Ave between 13th and 14th. It's cheap and delicious.

          1. If you're there after 3PM, I would go to the El Idolo taco truck on the NE corner of 8th Ave, and 14th St. (I think that's when it arrives). I like to combine it with a trip to the Apple Store or Guitar Center - it's not necessarily worth a special trip, but a nice, cheap treat if you're in the neighborhood.
