I was walking down 5th St. to Minca for a steaming bowl of ramen (between Aves. B and A) yesterday when I saw a chalkboard sign outside Le Gamin (536 E. 5th St. – 212.529.8933) proclaiming an $8 burger and beer combo. I gave them a call to see if any special times apply, and it seems this deal is on so long as the kitchen is open, all week and apparently, also on the weekends (but call ahead just to be sure).

If you’re not in a burger kind of mood, this quaint little French cafe also has tasty crepes and salads. According to the NY Times review, they’re inexpensive and tasty.

This popular and inexpensive café chain specializes in French street crepes, sugared or salted and stuffed with everything from Nutella to smoked salmon to ratatouille, or any combination thereof. (You can mix and match three fillings in a salted crepe which includes a salad.) But that’s not the Francophile franchise’s main appeal—savor a generous bowl of café au lait while you get caught up on all the latest magazines, which share wall space with a variety of vintage French restaurant and tourist ephemera. It’s not quite the Left Bank, but it’s a good way to check out the latest French Vogue without shelling out fifteen bucks. — Andy Bailey. Recommended Dishes: Savory crepe which includes a salad, $7-$11; café au lait, $4.50
