Dinner for a group, the majority of whom will be fine with sushi but there is one guest who will not eat sushi at all. I'm ideally looking for a spot with mid-priced sushi ($8-15 for rolls) with a decent selection of other items (soups, dumplings would be fantastic, salads, pasta -- not sure how likely that is). He has a pretty "simple" taste, doesn't have to be fancy, but would not appreciate being "forced" to throw $11 down for a house salad because it's his only option.
Would prefer a location below 34th St. but will travel. We're not looking for anything outrageously priced (~$30/person for good food would be an ideal price), just a decent meal for people coming in from out of town for the evening.
