This could just be the best value meal in NYC

From the sublime to the ridiculous - last Sunday we were enjoying the regional dishes of the northern Veneto with Stephen & Jenny in the old world charm of Hosteria Ca' Dentro on via Canova in Asolo. This Sunday back in NYC we had lunch at Ikea in the Red Hook section of Brooklyn. All you could eat for $14.40: Swedish meatballs and fries, soup, salad, yogurt, chips, soda (free refills), apple juice. Plus great views of the Freedom Tower and Statue of Liberty from the dining room. Plus a free water taxi ride to and from Pier 11 at South Street Seaport. Not to mention plenty of exercise climbing through the "Bjursta" cupboards. Only trouble was it was extremely depressing standing in the long, slow moving line waiting to be served lunch...
