I'm a college kid from CA visitng NY for the first time in early September. I've been researching restaurants online/reading Chowhound, but I'm a bit overwhelmed. Looking for recs for fairly inexpensive (< $15) restaurants for dinner, anywhere in Manhattan accessible by subway. Highly adventurous, down to try anything. Good food is more important that atmosphere, although I am partial to hip & trendy environments.
Any advice is greatly appreciated, thanks in advance!
