I am traveling with my 18 year daughter to NYC for a couple of days - and we are looking for some fun places to grab breakfast, lunch & dinner. We are staying at 7th & W. 48th area. Any recommendations would be helpful.

  1. Your request is pretty high level. Manhattan has thousands of restaurants.

    What's your budget, per person, before tax/tip/drinks for you? How "inexpensive" is inexpensive, to you? $20pp? $30pp?

    When are you coming? Do you plan to make reservations in advance or are you willing to wait for a table?

    Where are you traveling from? Is this your first time in NYC? If not, what else have you enjoyed in the past?

    How far are you willing to go from 7th Ave and 48th? Any other neighborhoods you will be visiting?

    What cuisines do you like or dislike? Allergies? Avoids?

    I'd also check out Midtownlunch.com (reviews of only lunch in Midtown, usually under $10) and RealCheapEats.com.
