Moving to NY. Suggestions on where to reside based on chow?

tastyjon | Feb 4, 2007 07:54 PM

I'm leaning towards moving to NY as my company is based there. As a single, 30 something guy, my choice of potential neighborhoods isn't defined by schools, family, etc. The office is midtown, so just about any area is fair game.

So if I used chow as a factor in where to live, would you have any suggestions?

We're not talking about being nearest the top 5-star eateries. Rather, being of much simpler means and income, I'm more interested in variety of both food and prices. Also a variety of options beyond restaurants... good grocers, farmer's markets, street food, take-out, etc. I like cooking/eating at home as much as eating out. No need for $30 meals... I'm just as impressed by a $3 Indian food snack or a nice Vietnames sandwich. Love ethinc. Love spicy. Great food is everywhere in NYC. There are great swaths of ethnic streets.

The question is: Where are some suggested places to live where you can walk out the door and have a wide mix of tastes to explore?
