Where do the starving artists eat in Manhattan?

cswim06 | Sep 4, 2006 04:42 PM

I'm a newly-minted college grad that starts working in the city tomorrow. I grew up in Westchester and have restaurant-loving parents who constantly took us into the city for eats. I've been to a lot of the "big" places (Union Sq Cafe, Gramercy Tavern, Gotham B and B, Cafe Gray, the McNally empire etc.) so I like good food served in nice environments. Problem is, my parents cut me off and my meager salary won't allow me to eat out as well as I've become accustomed to.

Any suggestions for young/fun/tasty and, above all, affordable places to sit down and eat? I'll need a break from pizza/hot dogs/chinese every once in a while...

Also, cheap drinks are a definite plus (college partying is still very fresh in my mind)
