I'm visiting NYC for the 1st time to celebrate my 50th birthday in early October. I've been fantasizing about eating my way through Manhattan for decades, so I'm pretty excited. My problem is that we're only going to be in the city for 3 and a half days, so I'm pretty limited on the number of meals I can cram down my gullet.
I love ethic foods of all sorts, but I get good Mexican here in CA, and good Asian, too. Any suggestions for either not-to-be-missed street food or ethnic restaurants in Midtown? Money's not a big concern, but I figure cheap is always good.
