Where Should I go for a Delicious, Cheap Lunch Today?
I work downtown but will be leaving early. I am ending a long summer of extravagant eating for two reasons, the first being money and the second being that I must lose weight. This weekend is the last "hurrah". I've got time to burn this afternoon so I'm looking for some great suggestions, anywhere in the city, of a place to have a delicious, indulgent meal on the cheap (less than $20). I'll eat pretty much anything, but not in the mood for sushi or Indian. Keep the suggestions coming! Thanks in advance...
Shake Shack! get there at an off time and enjoy a shake burger, french fries and a shake! That is where I would go for a inexpensive end of summer lunchtime splurge. (second choice in the same vane would be Stand or another "upscale" burger joint.)
If you check OpenTable you can get a list of all the places that are still doing Restaurant Week lunch. Today is the last day for a decadent lunch at some of the best restaurants in the city for only $24.07.
Klatch - 9 Maiden Ln, New York, NY 10038 (between Broadway & Cortlandt St)- great coffee if your near F dist.
Lamarca Café and Take Out for fattening pasta,161 E 22St (corner 3rd Ave) New York, NY, 10010
and one of my favs, Paris Sandwich Corp. for a little shopping in C-town
Why not go to RGR's LES tour (even if you have done that before) and spend the afternoon there!
OR go to Essex Market for a round of food shopping plus visiting the recenly reopened Shopsins!
I love the Pad Sie Ew at Bennie's Thai on the corner of Fulton and Gold! I sure wouldn't call it diet food! You can get it with shrimp for $9. ( chicken or pork is $8).
