Relatively inexpensive, fairly quiet place for business dinner

Hi, everyone. I'd like to reserve for 5 people for a dinner this Thursday. The kind of place I'm looking for would have mains clustering in the low 20s or less and would be quiet enough to easily have a conversation. Preference for places below 23rd St. (even better: below 14th St.) and above Canal, from the East River to around 6th Av. To give you some idea of what I'm thinking about, I'd consider Crispo except that it tends to be very loud, and my preference is for someplace that's actually slightly cheaper than Crispo, if anything. I'm not looking for a super-informal Chinese place with formica counters and such; I know plenty of those. But it can be a bit more informal than Crispo. Of course, the food should be excellent, regardless. Some cuisines that would be fine are Italian, American, French, Greek, but really almost anything that's good and fits my other descriptions (some preference for menus that are not exclusively carby, though).
