looking for some picks on where to go during budget month! we had a big purchase this week and need to make up for it by cutting back on our dining expenses. i'm thinking of places like Porchetta, Ippudo, Caracas, Keste and Shake Shack, where we can get out under $40 (no drinks, obviously), but still look forward to trekking out.
oddball suggestions are most appreciated. there's little we don't eat.
