If you’re looking for a cheap and scrumptious lunch, treat yourself to the two-course special at Recipe on Amsterdam Ave. and 82nd Street.

For $ 11.95 a friend and I had fried pumpkin gnocchi with shredded chicken, turnips, and brussel sprouts, then red snapper resting on a bed of creamy polenta studded with calamari, mussles and other seafood. Both were delectable, though the red snapper beat out the gnocchi by a hair. It was the kind of thoughtfully prepared meal with great ingredients that you’d travel below 14th Street for—and wind up paying triple the price.
