tourist in NY

Hi All,

ok so i've read through a number of posts and taken in varying tips and people's favourites about where to eat whilst in NY - manhatten.

i guess the problem is that there is just so much information, and particularly when everyone voices their own different opinion. ultimately what you get is hundreds of recommendation to different places. and ultimately for a first timer to NY, im left just as directionless as i was before i started researching.

just wondering if there is a top 20 or so list of places to eat in NY. has one already been created on this website or other websites? I understand everyone has their favourites and hence one person's top 20 might differ from another's. but i guess unanimously, there would be a handful of restaurants/eateries/cafes/..heck even a hot dog cart...that people would agree upon as a must try

my partner and I are arriving in NY from Sydney, Australia, in late july and leaving early August (13days) to be spent solely on absorbing what NY city has to offer. 13 days means around 40 meals! so it'd be great to have some sort of comprehensive foodies list to tick off.

open to trying out everything - from street food to high end restaurants.
we've got the frommers NY guide and the Lonely Planet guide, but in addition to these, it would be great to have a list (if one exists) voted upon by locals or even those who ferquent NY city enough, to say... if you're in NY, you must try this place....
