I'm a Montrealer heading down to NYC for a weekend away from it all in about a month and I was hoping for some foodie ideas & suggestions. First off, i'm a student, somewhat poor, who doesn't want to spend more than $40 per day (I get a free breakfast at my hotel). So I'm basically looking for a decent lunch, nothing fancy, and a nice dinner with the girlfriend. We'll be there for 3 full days, so I'll need lots of ideas.
By the way, we're staying at the Hilton on Ave.of the Americas but plan to sight-see as much as possible.
