Husband and I will be visiting NY for the first time in late May and is staying near Times Square. We were told by friends who have already visited NYC that we should avoid eating at restaurants in Times Square since prices are a lot higher and we could get better food quality elsewhere.Is this true? If it is, then we would like to avoid eating in Times Square altogether and go to different location.
We would like to ask for some recommendations/suggestion of good casual restaurant for lunch and dinner for the below location area. We are more interested in restaurants that the locals go to have a good meal and not the tourist trap restaurants.
1. Hell Kitchen for dinner
2. Greenwich Village lunch and dinner
3. Little Italy for dinner
4. Near Brooklyn promenade for lunch
5. Wall Street
6. Tribeca for lunch and dinner
7. Rockefeller Center
