“Eat for $10 or less at the best restaurants with cheap eats in NYC
UPDATE, October 29 2020: Dining out in New York City has never been so different than this year and it’s not only because restaurants had to shut down their dining rooms for more than six months. The current crisis has put a renewed focus on more affordable food options, whether you’re scarfing down tacos from a food truck or ordering dumplings from a mom-and-pop business in Chinatown. At Time Out New York, we’ve done the homework for you in discovering dishes, old and new, that are all $10 or under.
The hefty prices at many New York restaurants can at times make the dining scene feel like it’s only for the elite. But some of the best restaurants in NYC still serve affordable bites for $10 or less. Dining on a budget in New York doesn’t have to feel like a constraint with our picks for jerk chicken, Sicilian-style pizza, creative veggie burgers, underground buffets, Cuban bakeries and more.”=============================================================================
“Due to popular demand, NYC Restaurant Week To Go will be extended to the end of February.
When first announced, NYC Restaurant Week To Go was slated to last citywide from Jan. 25-31 with the option to offer the discounts the following week, Feb. 1-7. Due to high levels of success, NYC & Company announced that the annual event will be extended to last through Feb. 28, allowing New Yorkers to support hundreds of local restaurants.”
“Let’s face it, New Yorkers love to eat. It can be 30 degrees out and you’ll catch diners bundled up on the side of the road sitting down for a meal, unfazed! We simply have too much good food to try.
It’s an exciting day for foodies in New York City because starting today, Restaurant Week is returning to for its 29th year, but this time with a little twist. Since indoor dining is banned, the event is now NYC Restaurant Week To Go.
This year, more than 570 restaurants across the five boroughs are participating—the highest number yet! The event will last through January 31st, with each restaurant having the choice for a second week extension. But the best news about Restaurant Week To Go, is most definitely the price tag.” (secretnyc.com)================================================================================
