  1. What is "reasonably priced" to you? That can be quite different for different people.

    Some thoughts, without knowing price range: Caffe Falai, La Esquina, Lure Fishbar, Mercer Kitchen, The Dutch, David Burke Kitchen...

    2. The Dutch

      Boqueria

      Burger & Barrell

      Bread (NoLIta, but close enough)

      Balaboosta (ditto)

      I love Balthazar, but I don't think I'd call their lunch "chill." It's like Grand Central in there at the lunch hour.

          1. Hundred Acres is another option. I agree with Sgordon that what's reasonably priced differs from person to person. To my poor grad friends, it's $10-$20 and for my banker and lawyer friends, it's much higher.

            Also, there are a few smaller cafes on the side streets which serve decent fare. Again, you didn't give too many info besides fun and casual about what you were looking for in terms of food. My suggestion is if you don't have a clear sense, just walk around, take a look at menus and pop in and see what the wait time is (unless you or others need to adhere to a set time). If it's less than an hour, put your name and mobile down and do some shopping or hang out. That's what my friends and I do sometimes instead of reserving ahead. It's sort of nice to hang out without rushing from place to place.
