Quick dinner (<1h) near Walter Kerr Theater

vegan-friendly in Financial District SIT-DOWN

Alfanoose (Arabic) and Diwan e Khaas (Indian) are very casual and inexpensive sit down places in the Financial District that offer tasty vegan dishes.

I usually get the lentil soup and grain salads at Alfanoose, and the vegetarian platter (prepared without butter I believe) at Diwan.

Terri is takeout though there are standing counters I think.

How about Alfanoose or Diwan e Khaas?

Intimate NYC Wedding Dinner Locations?

Have you tried Tocqueville? I believe the F&B minimum is well within your budget.

Good brunch for group near Central Park 102nd Street transverse?

You could take the subway on CPW to The Cecil in Harlem.

Is Del Posto worth the splurge?

Del Posto is definitely worth the splurge.

Lincoln is a more affordable alternative with food that's just as good and an equally dramatic setting.

Best dinner in the city for under $100 pp

I haven't been to Batard but certainly prefer Lincoln to Betony and NoMad.

Batali opened Pizzeria Mozza in LA but Motorino is still a good suggestion.
