Best eats in the city?

Does anyone have any recommendations for places to eat anywhere in the city?

Looking for places to eat at for lunch and dinner, not fussy eaters just looking for some good food.

That's a fairly broad request.

Give this a try: http://www.menupages.com

You can search by cuisine, area, etc. Plus you can read reviews.

Anywhere at all? Out of the 20,000 plus places there are to eat at, there will be plenty of good food but you may want to offer a few more details - location, type, budget -

I would just read some of the current questions and answers about food already posted on the forum, or get a lot more specific.

I found trip reports (you can search for them on the main page) very useful in really good eating places.

I have lists, on top of lists divided up into categories (11 pages worth) of places people have recommended. A lot of the same ones you will see over & over again. After I made the lists, I went onto Google maps & figured out the locations, so I'd know when I 'd be near them.. Lots of work, but I'll be prepared. I refuse to eat at not great places while we're there.. I have no experience yet, 1st trip next week. But this is my opinion that I can share. :)

If you're going to be in Times Square then head OUT of Times Square for some good, cheap eats. Hell's Kitchen is not far, just head west and you'll come to some good eating places.

Here is a list to start. There's a map at the bottom of the page: eatingwithziggy.com/2013/…

Rebheka-I agree with the previous post. I've been stalking Trip Advisor for a couple of months and have made pages and pages of notes from reading trip reports, advice from the experts to questions posted. When I read a restaurant/diner I like the sound of, I google map it and then look at the menu and reviews!

I'm with 'momof4wifeto1'-I hate to think I might waste a good food opportunity. In fact I'm following her question just posted about advice on food carts...

Same with me, I check out menus of places others mention in trip reports and see if in my price range then I map it out so I know where it is, I have way more restaurants then I could possibly ever eat at in 6 days!

What is your budget for theses "best" category? You need to be a bit more specific to get the right replies.

momof4wifeto1 I'd love to hear your choices and opinions - are you going to do a trip report at all (please)?
