So, I used to live in NY (Westchester County) while in school and would go down to Manhattan quite a bit.... I used to be able to find tasty joints on a college student's budget.... but that was 8 years ago and I now live in LA. I have no idea where to go since I'm more or less out of the loop and because two of our guests that we're meeting are vegetarians (but not vegan).
They live near East 14th and 2nd Ave so I suppose our best bet is a place in the East Village or maybe Little Italy.
We'll be meeting them for dinner on a Tuesday night. Any recommendations?
The place should have vegetarian and nonvegetarian dishes, most entrees for under $25, and not require reservations.
If you need any more info, let me know if your post and I'll try to answer it.
Thank you for your help.
