Hi guys,

just about wrapping up my meal spots for my trip to the US (i'm from Australia). For NYC i'm planning on the following:

- Dinner at Blue Smoke
- Dinner at Momofuku Ssam
- Brunch/Lunch at Balthazar (any suggestions on which one to choose)

Looking at squeezing in one more place but unsure what. Don't want it too pricey, perhaps $30 for a main or $50-60 for pre-fixe etc.

Also any hotspots for cheap eats? planning to wing it for the rest of my remaining meals there.

    For your budget of about $30 per main course look into:

    Acme
    Le Philosophe
    Perla
    Uncle Boons

    Cheap eats:

    Mission Chinese Food
    Pok Pok Phat Thai
    Ippudo
    Parm
    Motorino

      You could take advantage of some of the fine dining pre fixe lunch options available- bouley, jean gorges, del posto and betony are several options that would be within your budget

        Not sure what you mean by hot spots. Like trendy, hip places? Those usually aren't that cheap.

            Midtownlunch.com would also be helpful while "on the go" for lunch ideas. Their maps are especially handy.
