visiting Manhattan, need recs
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
On the UWS, at those prices, you may have a bit of a problem. Here are some possibilites. Not nec. the greatest food, but given your constraints:
Flor de Mayo = there are two locations
Cafe con Leche
there's a new Italian place called San Luigi's. Kind of old-style, pasta with sauces, it ain't Babbo, but it's cheap. Amst. and 75 or so
For breakfast, Barney Greengrass will strain your budget, but might make two meals.
There's Arties Deli, which is decent (83 and Bway) and certainly will fill you up.
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...
