Food in New York comes in all shapes and sizes ranging from the uber-expensive and good to the overrated. If you don't have the bankroll for five star cuisine, here are some cheap, yet tasty New York institutions.
New York Staples
New York is known for its hot dogs, pizza, bagels, and the deli sandwich. They're all cheap, good, and readily available. New York Magazine shares some of their favorites for the quintessential New York hot dog experience.
If you're not so keen on mystery pork, a farmer's market might be more up your alley. The Union Square Farmer's Market offers great breakfast options and snacks for later. Check out the greenmarket schedules, and plan your days accordingly.
Always cheap, always open and with a wide range of menu choices, the New York diner is a solid choice. We often frequent the Lyric Diner near Grammercy Park, but you'll find in your neighborhood of choice that will suit you perfectly.
New Yorkers aren't known for giving up their secrets, but these top favorites on Yelp might be worth a try.
