1 night dinner help, 1st time in NYC

Hello All,

I need some advice. I will be in NYC for the first time ever (originally from CA but in MD for school) for the night of 11/30 and I will be staying at one of the Marriotts by Rockefeller Center.

I am looking to spend no more than $25 (food, pre-tax/tip) for my first NYC dinner but am unsure of what and where. Basically, I want something that screams "NEW YORK!"

Overall, I am quite an adventurous eater and willing to try anything once. I just like to eat in moderation so places with exorbitantly unhealthy foods are kinda out (and I do need a little bit of room because I really want to hit up the "Big Gay Ice Cream Truck" for some soft serve (Bea Arthur or Milk Bar).

Any advice is greatly appreciated! (along with approval for my first stop once I'm there, to go get a bagel and lox at Russ and Daughters?)

Want to stay up to date with this post?
