Brother in law visiting NYC for the first time. Suggestions?

realbigfoodie Aug 8, 2013 06:36 AM

My brother in law has never been to NYC before in his life (incredible!). Anyway he's coming for the first time this weekend, with my sister who has been here many times but doesn't live here. Any recommendations for where we should take a first time visitor out to eat? He is on vacation but doesn't want to spend more than $50 a head.

    LOTS of essential NYC recs in previous discussions.

    For example:
    Quintessential NYC fare:

    Where's he from?

    What else is he doing while here? Sightseeing, museums, shopping, Broadway shows?

    $50 a head INCLUDING tax and tip? Or before? Makes a big difference.

      He's from Chicago. $50 **before** tax and tip, which really means about $40/head.
