visiting Manhattan, need recs
- garhone Sep 3, 2006 06:53 PM
I'm visiting NYC in mid-September ... and I'm looking for recommendations.
Budgetwise, here are my upper boundaries (though I'd rather not always spend at these limits):
Breakfast $15, prefer $10
Lunch $20, prefer $15
Dinner $25, prefer $20
I'm staying near Broadway and 75th. I'd like to be able to get to these places easily by subway or foot.
I'd like to try dim sum, french, pizza, italian, spanish, mexican, dessert/ice cream, but I'm not limiting my query to these categories; I'm open to other suggestions!!!
Thanks in advance
Broadway and 75th? You'll be right on top of Big Nick's Pizza which is an UWS instituation. They've got a sister-joint that serves great burgers as well.
There's a place on Broadway in the 80s called Shanghai Palace that serves very cheap (and also generic, but still tasty) Chinese. The main draw of the restaurant, to be frank, is free, unlimited (though boxed) wine with your meal...
Dim Sum Go Go has fabulous, interesting dim sum, though not on carts. Spotted Pig is great for lunch or dinner (though quite a scene, so go on the early/late side). Fatty Crab has some great dishes and some misses, but their chili crab is out of this world and worth a trip.
