Where to eat, and how much it will be while traveling in New York

You can ask 10 different people on the street of NYC and (if they don’t ignore you) they’ll each give you different options on where to eat while you’re in the city. Every day, new restaurants open and close as the demanding NYC restaurant scene only allows the best of the best to stay, and forces others to shut down. If you only have a day, a few days, or just the night to pick a place to go, what do you do? Do you rely on apps like Yelp, or prefer to go by recommendations? We could write novels of the best places in New York City and why, but we’re going to keep it short and sweet. We’ve done the dirty work for you and have chosen a list of noteworthy dining options sure to make your mouth water. Scaled from pricey (and we mean NYC pricey) - $$$$, to super budget friendly - $, Your next problem is going to be picking one! (You can totally go to more than one, though…we won’t tell).  Good luck!
