Dig Lupe's but am looking for additions. Thoughts?

  1. Mooncake on Watts St. Good soups, salads, and I dig their whitefish sandwich.
    Sunrise Mart on Broome - nice Japanese selection, market with seating area. Sushi/sashimi, wraps, salads, and made to order udon/ramen soups.

    1. Try the awesome squares of pizza (esp. the potato one) at Grandaisy Bakery on Sullivan St. My favorite cheap lunch in the 'hood.

        HOLY SHIT!

        so what you're saying si, they take potatoes and onions that match up favorably to any breakfast potatoes I've had in nyc and then put them on top of amazing pizza crust?

          The potato square's great. They make a nice cauliflower one too. I usually get it at the Tribeca shop.

        2. It's at the top of your price range, but Aurora is nearby at 510 Broome. It's lovely and has very good food. They have nice sandwiches at lunch for under 10 dollars, the burger is something like 12 and the pastas are in the 15-17 range.

          1. I was just there staying at the Hilton Garden Inn at 6th and Canal- I ate at a soup/ sandwich place called Columbine, and it was delicious! They have 3 different soup specials everyday, plus a handful of homemade sandwiches, salads, and sides. The store itself has moved into the space next door with a sign that says "Clementine " on it, not sure what that's about.

            Columbine- 229 W, Broadway, New York, NY 10013

            Cafe Clementine
            227 W Broadway, New York, NY 10013

            2. Two additional choices would be: Cercle Rouge, 241 W. Broadway and Walker's 16 N. Moore (@ Varick); ought to be able to stay within your budget at both.
