Okay, so we have a rough first draft of our itinerary for our budget trip but I'm guessing we can do better.
So far, we are thinking of trying to hit up the following whilst in town:
Breakfast: Clinton Street Bakery, The Smith
Lunches: Brooklyn one day so maybe Luger's Burger or Junior's Diner, Saigon for banh mi, Ippudo for ramen, Katz for Pastrami (we don't always eat lunch so may skip some of these)
Dinners: Dinosaur for BBQ, Shake Shack for burger, Johns on Bleeker for pizza
Desserts: Rice to Riches, Doughnut Plant, Chickalicious or Waffle & Dinges Truck
Still need recs for: bagels near Wellington hotel, cheap & tasty pasta, a good quality & cheap american diner.
Open to change any of the above if we can do better.
