How to Eat Affordable Restaurant Meals in New York City

March 22nd, 2018 | Dining

Any trip is influenced by the food you eat at your destination. You can’t have one without the other, but when traveling on a budget, fast-food restaurants tend to became the first choice for hungry sightseers. However, we have the secret to eating delicious sit-down meals in New York without breaking the bank.

The key to great food at a great price is a prix-fixe menu. Many restaurants offer their usual a la carte menu but also set menus with a couple of choices of entrées, mains and desserts for one price. Some offer two, three or even four-course meals and you can choose to add drinks or wine pairings, in some cases. Most of these menus are served for dinner or lunch; so, if you choose the Grab ‘n Go Breakfast offer with your booking at the Manhattan at Times Square, you’re all set for the day!

Let’s get to it. Here are the Manhattan at Times Square’s suggestions of restaurants in New York where you can save but also enjoy exquisite food. Keep in mind that taxes and gratuities aren’t included in the price.
