Restaurants and luncheonettes around college and university campuses are always great places to find low-priced meals, and the Asian restaurant called Vine, by Columbia University, is no exception. Avoid the regular entree and appetizer menu of Japanese and Thai dishes in favor of the Columbia Lunch Box, an $8.25 deal that includes a California Roll, salad, and choice of dishes including tempora, Thai curry with chicken or beef and vegetables, pork or chicken Katsu, and rice. There’s also a $12.95 Bento Box served all day, not just at lunch, which includes a California roll, vegetable tempura, and a choice of sashemi, beef negimaki, Katsu and chicken or salmon teriyaki, and rice. Vine is at 2953 Broadway, between 115th and 116th Streets. Vine has no website, but the phone number is 212-222-3568. Hours are 11:30 AM to 11 PM Sunday to Thursday, and until midnight on Friday and Saturday.
