I have been researching Manhattan restaurants for the last three days and feel like my head is spinning! Every time I think I might have a list I do more research and get more confused. I have been to NYC a few years back and a friend that I am traveling with is a first timer. Please please help me put together a list of restaurants.
Here is what I think might be the problem, I am on a budget. I am looking at a maximum of $30 breakfast, $40 for brunch/lunch and a couple of dinners at $60 and one at $100 (including drink/tax/tip per person). Is it possible to eat great food at that price point? Food guidelines are nothing too adventurous or heavy in the seafood department, one of my dining companions is allergic to shellfish.
Someone has recommended Macao Trading Company, La Esquina and Tap Room. What do you think?
