Suggestion for one more restaurant

mango3210 Nov 27, 2013 04:56 AM

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.

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

    Check out realcheapeats.com.

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

        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

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

          Le Philosophe
          Uncle Boons

          Cheap eats:

          Mission Chinese Food
          Pok Pok Phat Thai
