Best Cheap/ Fairly priced Eats in NYC that Youve been to or heard of... - Page 11

Otafuku in the East Village. It's across the street from Sobaya, and I believe they are owned by the same folks. You can get a takoyaki and okonomiyaki combo for 7 bucks.

Man, I just went to yelp and looked at some of the reviews. I don't think I can trust yelp after reading some of the moronic reviews.

I've been there a number of times. It used to be a lot cheaper, IIRC, and therefore a better deal. Food is fine, sometimes quite good, but New York has no shortage of options so wouldn't be my first choice.

Spice on University would qualify as "fairly priced". Peppe Rosso though.... a chicken/bacon sandwich (on foccaccia) and a coke is $10? That seems very high to me. The sandwich is very good, but it's still just a chicken sandwich.

You want good Thai food in Williamsburg that happens to be cheap, check out the hole-in-the-wall a few doors down from Black Betty on Metropolitan (near Havemeyer). Best Thai food in the city, which is also a very good deal, is Sripraphai. But this is also if you're looking for more authentic and not so geared toward western palates (spicy = fire in the belly).

Totally disagree w/ the poster who say Goodburger outdoes Burger Joint. There's not even really a comparison: Goodburger's fine for the whole "organic, grass-fed" beef thing, but for a pure, mouth-watering greasy burger for cheap, Burger Joint is far more satisfying. Could also be how you order--I always ask for rare-medium rare.

Went to Bouley for lunch last week. I have to say that it's the best lunch deal I've found in NYC. $38 and I think I had at least 6 or 7 courses. I couldn't even finish my dessert b/c I was so stuffed.

Thanks everyone.

Anyone have any more tips for the W. Village?

Somewhere back in this thread I mentioned Tavern on Jane in the west vill. Very good value...

Anyone come across good recession specials? I was in Bar Stuzzichini for lunch a few weeks back and they had a somewhat ridiculous lunch deal: any two stuzzichini (usually $5-$10 each), any main course or pasta (usually $15-$20), and a large serving of gelato or sorbet for only $20.

Also, anyone have more good recommendations between Radio City and Lincoln Center for a cheap/quick dinner. I've been to Sapporo a number of times thanks to this thread.

Not exactly cheap but I read that Del Posto slashed its tasting menu prices

Have you been? Did you like it? I meant to go when it opened but never got around to it--nor had the cash to burn.

I went in the beginning but was unimpressed. A lot of the superlative service was un-natural and contrived. Maybe I don't get haute Italian... Some of the food was great (pasta dishes, appetizers) but our main (roasted veal chops) was a bit bland. I much prefer Babbo actually

I've been to Del Posto twice and would reccomend it to go at least once.
