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.

We’ve done the dirty work for you and have chosen a list of noteworthy dining options sure to make your mouth water.
