My home town - or at least where I'm living currently...

Some suggestions off the top of my head:

Madame Claude
[www.madameclaudecafe.com]

Tacquiera (good but cheap)
[maps.google.com]

Porto Leggero
[www.zagat.com]

Komegashi
[www.komegashi.com]

Marco and Pepe

I lived & worked there in the late 1990s before all of the New Yorkers moved in and made it too expensive [but not you, Bixby winking smiley].

Outside of downtown, here are a few choice picks:

Try Casa Dante for old-school elegant Italian.

A great out-of-the-way place on a quiet residential block is Laico's. I found the original restaurant on Terhune Ave. to have superior food to their Summit Ave location (it's in a 18th-century building, though).

Another great, unpretentious Italian joint favored by locals is Rita & Joe's near the Pulasi Skyway. I love their homemade pasta.

If you are downtown, Komegashi is a decent bet. I used to love their $10 lunch special. You may also want to try the Light Horse Tavern on Washington St.

Well, I moved from Kansas, where my one bedroom apartment of the same size cost 1/4 of my current place - which has two people living in it. But I work in public radio, which really doesn't pay all that well, you must realize. Plus it all depends on your standard of living. I don't eat out very much at all, etc.

But one more quick lunch suggestion: Second Street Bakery. The best sandwiches at the best prices. Very old school. It's great.
