New York City is a tourist’s masterpiece. Whether it’s a Broadway show, the Metropolitan Museum of Art or a stroll through Central Park, the sights are only a part of New York’s flair. New York offers the best cuisine in the country fit for any foodie. Of course, the amazing cuisine comes at a price.
Luckily, you don’t need empty your wallet to enjoy the fine cuisine of New York. First, research some deals before your trip. Sites like Groupon and LivingSocial offer great discounts on some of the finest restaurants in every major city.
Second, do your research. Eater NY is a great site to look for inexpensive eateries that will ensure you’re not missing out. Next, skip dinner. Lunch is a great way to enjoy the same cuisine of a 5-star restaurant at a discounted price. Also, think about happy hour. Besides the drink specials, you’ll be able to enjoy some food specials throughout the city.
If you’re on the run checking out different sites, stop and take a look at street vendors. New York’s food trucks offer some unique and delicious bites.
Finally, see if you can plan your travel around Restaurant Week. Two times per year (January/February and June/July), some of the city’s most expensive restaurants offer a special reduced menu. This is one of the best ways to fulfill your passion for fine dining in New York.
