Let’s get this out of the way – if you have the money and can get a reservation at Per Se, Gramercy Tavern, Eleven Madison Park,or Massa, you’re in for world-class dining. But you don’t need us to tell you that. This blog is about hacks – better-than-expected value in less-than-obvious places.
Some of the best food in the city has relocated to the outer boroughs. But Manhattan will always have a gravitational pull for gastronomy, and some of its best restaurants are its institutions – neighborhood joints that have been around for decades. Amongst our selections you’ll find a mixture of old and new, ethnic and traditional.
