medium priced restaurant choice near tribeca cinema
Check out Westville on Hudson Street. Share a vegetable platter and get a couple sandwiches or other entrees.
Food is delicious, there's a (limited choice) happy hour, and the place is spacious and uncrowned in the evening.
My son just recommended Mooncake Foods, too: "Good and inexpensive" (this said by a self-supporting grad student).
Westville is one of my favorites, but last time I was there, it seemed there was no AC, so if it gets really warm again, I'd want a fall back.
Da Mikele (Italian) and Kori (Korean) are also solid choices in an area lacking mid-range options. Terroir is another possiblity, but it can get loud after work on weekdays.
