This urban hangout, complete with brick walls, exposed ductwork, uncomfy wooden chairs, and beer cans on the wall arranged to spell “Reno,” delivers uncommonly good and cheap foodie food. The superfresh kale salad with bagel croutons somehow tastes smoky, and even two people can’t make a dent in it. It’s tough to choose between that and the frisée spinach. Your call. But don’t miss the gnocchi—little pillows of love.

ORDER: Sautéed green beans with fried garlic and& romesco sauce, $5; potato gnocchi, $10; warm Coca-Cola cake and vanilla ice cream, $6
