14th St. Faves?

howdini Aug 30, 2011 02:05 PM

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?

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

      Thanks, ml, but I should've specified within a 2-3 block walk.

      grey dog on university and 12th is solid enough for sandwiches. stand on 12th and university used to be ok for burgers...their shakes are still great.

      not a ton of options over there due to the rent.

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

            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.

                    Pita Joe is pretty decent falafel and they just lowered their prices. If you want great falafel, walk a little further over to Taim.
