Family here from the U.K.
I have family here from the U.K. and they are staying in the city. What are some of the best eating spots i can take them to for lunch and dinner or inbtween meals.
I'm not looking for upscale.
Cheaper end is better. Street food. quick food.no waiter service. However i am open to some restauarants
So far i was thinking, shake shack, grimaldi's, maybe some hole in the wall chinese food. Some FroYo if its nice out, etc....
Where are you going to be between meals? A neighborhood or two would help us tailor suggestions.
I'd suggest you do RGR's Gustatory Tour: Katz's Deli, Russ & Daughters, Yonah Schimmel's, Ray's, Kossar's, The Donut Plant, Gus' Pickles, Il Laboratorio de Gelato, and Economy Candy.
