I am hoping to get to the Tribeca Grand Hotel on Thursday, May 13, and would love to eat at a fabulous Italian restaurant in the area, however, my friends and I can't really afford to spend, say, more than $40 each for the meal (maybe less). We are not wine drinkers, so that should cut down on the bill, eh? We are willing to walk a bit and ride the subway/trains to get around.
Suggestions? Even on places to avoid would be helpful.
