My husband and I are going to NYC next year for our 10th anniversary. I knew it would be expensive, and to give you an idea of our budget, we were thinking of hotels in the $200-250/night range, but geez, there's not much to choose from in the city for that.
So I guess also in terms of restaurants, I sort of expect the same. I would say our budget will be moderate according to NYC standards, although by home-in-Orlando standards we live really well. I expect we will spend $200-250 on ONE dinner, but we will be there for at least 3 breakfasts, lunches, and dinners. We like cool and trendy, and we're fairly adventurous eaters (but not weird), and we're not late night people. Looking breakfast less than $40, lunch less than $60, and generally dinner less than $100 except for one really nice one. My husband drinks a little, I don't at all, so that could make a more expensive place less expensive, but I don't want to eat anywhere that will "expect" me to order wine. I would appreciate recs, and yes we will be typical tourists trying to eat in Manhattan, Greenwich, and Soho, including one pre- or post-theater meal. thanks!
