I'll be in NYC for a week this October for a medical conference, but my real agenda is to take a big bite of the Big Apple. I've been to NYC many times over the years and have had some terrific dining experiences. This time I plan to focus on reliable and modestly priced establishments for lunch and dinner. I'm seeking ethnic food with big flavors and good value in any of the 5 boroughs. Some specific items include:
Authentic Mexican (no TexMex)
Old school Italian
Chinese with some heat
Quite a request I admit, but it is worth the effort.
