I'm a college kid from CA coming to NY for the first time in early September...I've been researching restaurants/reading Chowhound, but I'm feeling pretty overwhelmed. Please, please give me recs on fairly inexpensive (< $15) dinner restaurants, anywhere easily accessible by the subway. I'm really adventurous, so I'm down to eat anything. Good food is more important to me than atmosphere, although I am partial to hip & trendy environments.
Any advice is appreciated, thanks in advance!
