Best dining on a budget: Simon Sips



Add +

Simon Mammon's airy coffeeshop and wine bar has in no time established itself as an oasis for discerning, cash-strapped local diners. The average price on chef Ronna Welsh's menu of sandwiches, small plates and house-baked pastries hovers at $6 (make a $12 meal of kabocha squash soup and a jasmine lemon cake). That's something worth toasting with one of the eatery's ten wines, $6 to $12 a glass. Simon Sips 72 E 1st St at First Ave (212-388-0614)
