Visiting Manhattan on smallish budget

alish15 | Mar 4, 2012 02:50 PM

My boyfriend and I are visiting for four days and are looking for some tasty foods. We are going to school in Keene, NH, but I'm from Saratoga Springs and he's from outside of Boston. We want to go to one nice restaurant (sit down) and spend maybe 20- 45 per person, I'm not sure if thats possible on that low of budget. We are staying in the Upper West Side. We like Mexican food, homemade pasta, thai, Indian, LOVE Lebanese and other food like that ( hummus falafel, etc) Fusion foods and something that is creative and not a ordinary type of place that you would find in NH. haha Yes we do have very good restaurants, just not as many as our hometown areas. We also love very good coffee, like fair trade, organic, happily made beans. Fancy drinks would be fun but not a snobby vibe. Also we are spending a day at the the galleries in Chelsea so a lunch place would be nice. something causal and cheap ( under 15$). either soup, falafels, tacos IDK something tasty, we are very open. Oh and maybe some where at night that has cool unique mixed drinks that has a fun vibe not too fancy. I know this is vague and you don't have to answer every request, I thought I would throw stuff out there. I have spent alot of time looking at other boards but I thought I would make one myself and give it a try. Thanks SOO MUCH!
