Veggie-friendly, Inexpensive, Nice Atmosphere - Midtown East/Theatre District TONIGHT

My boyfriend will be coming from work (around 51st & Lex) and we need to get to 47th & 8th by 8pm.
I've seen a lot of great posts for restaurants on the more expensive end, but we're really looking for casual and delicious, entrees around the $10-15 mark. Vegetarian-friendly would be a plus.
Any quick recommendations? Thanks so much!

    1. re: valerie

      I'm looking for recommendations before I look for availability, but thanks!

    2. I would recommend Toloache, on 50th, b/t B'way & 8th. Very good Mexican food. In addition to their regular menu, they have one dedicated to vegetarian dish. Friendly, attentive service and pleasant atmospherics.
