Cost Of Eating Out In Manhattan!

I am just curious why people in NYC would pay so much for just a meal? I have talked to friends who went to NYC and also checked out the MenuPages web site. To say I am shocked at what a simple meal of spaghetti and meatballs costs in NYC is putting it mildly.

I would think it is easier to cook your own meals. I am not cheap but I refuse to pay almost $20 for a basic hamburger with nothing else with it when I can make it myself for a lot less.

No wonder people tell me you have to be rich to live in NYC. Your paychecks must all go for rent and food. I applaud anyone who can have a good life in NYC on an average paycheck.
