Hi, I (female) am going to be in Manhattan for work in a couple of weeks. I will have a late night Saturday and most of Sunday free and have never been to NY. Any suggestions for fairly budget-friendly solo dining? Also for going out / mingling? I like all kinds of food but would love something ethnic or unique to NY that I wouldn't find in Dallas.
I don't have a place to stay nailed down yet but was thinking of a hostel (Continental?) so I can use the money I have for entertainment.
