Where do you dine at least once a month?

Curious about where New Yorkers dine on a regular basis (excluding takeout).

Any neighborhood. Any price.

Thank you.

    1. re: foodwhisperer

      How can you have more than 30 once a monthers? How long are your months? Or do you eat out more than once a day?

      1. re: JC2

        I was just wondering the same. That's a big dining budget!

        1. re: JC2

          i eat breakfast lunch and dinner out. Do the math

          1. re: foodwhisperer

            I had the same thoughts...that's a long month, and only 4 or 5 o f those serve breakfast. Impressive ground you're covering....and more power to you if you're pulling that off.

              1. re: foodwhisperer

                Can you get a Japadog for breakfast? That's what I would do.....put Japadog into heavy rotation.

                1. re: foodwhisperer

                  You should get a Chase Sapphire preferred - 2X Ultimate Rewards points on dining that can be transferred to a few airlines, including United.

                  1. re: snaporaz

                    Citi Forward is even better. 5% cashback on restaurants, books (Amazon), etc.

                    1. re: snaporaz

                      interesting,,, on both the chase sapphire ,, and the city ,,i ve been using amex mostly

                2. re: foodwhisperer

                  I envy how clean your sink must be without any dishes to wash :)

                  That's an impressive list!

                3. re: foodwhisperer

                  I just looked at my last months credit card bills to compare list with what i wrote the first time:
