We're spending so much money on the hotel and on getting up to New York from DC, so we're really looking for inexpensive stuff. I know it's a matter of taste and will never be settled fully, but I'd like to know:
1. Best place(s) for pizza
2. Best place in Chinatown
3. Quirky neighborhood joints
Basically, I want to know the places I should hit while on a budget that are memorable and shouldn't be missed on a short visit. Not the trendy places that are over-hyped, but classic or underrated spots. Already on a tentative list are:
Dim Sum Gogo
Would you guys add any to this, or advise against? Our hotel is on West 81st street, but we're willing to trek pretty far out of the way (including other boroughs) if it's worthwhile.
Thanks so much!! I'm sure you get inundated with this question all the time.
