Although I've been to a few nice restaurants downtown, I find myself not knowing a thing about the cheap eats around the Sullivan/McDougal/West 4 Street area, which is where I'm currently studying for the bar. I'll be in the library pretty much all day and need to find a few places near NYU to buy lunch and dinner. So far, I've tried the Dosa cart guy and Mamoun's on McDougal. Do you guys know of any particular good places nearby? Also, are there any good places for desert (maybe gelateo)? I've searched through several boards on this topic but the posts are rather old and a bunch of the restaurants/cafes mentioned there no longer exist (i.e. Indian Bread. Co.). I'd like to start an updated 2011 thread.
Thanks for your input!
