Where do the locals dine?

What I want to ask is what restaurants do the locals go to? I don't want expensive or special restaurants.

I'm looking for where the people go to have dinner because they find the restaurant a good value, with good food, and comfortable.

Hey sjde:-) Locals usually dine locally, in their neighborhood:-) I live on the UWS and have dozens of choices with a 5 block radius.. easy walking .. to everything from diners, all American.. to Italian, Greek, Turkish, Mexican, Indian, Peruvian.. and the list goes on.. all are good value.. with good food and comfortable;-) Is there a specific area you are looking at?! May help the good folks here help you out since the City itself covers loads of nabes sprawled throughout;-) EnJOY!

Restaurants near Union square and flatiron/downtown.

Italian - Zio's on 19th street and 5th ave

Ben;s pizza - 14st and 6th ave

japanese/sushi - Ennju 17st. between 5th ave and broadway

Dos Toros Taqueria on 4th ave and 14 st.

and just walk around east village; u will find tons of little restaurants. Unfortunately with the skyrocketing real estate many of them are starting to be priced out and closing shop. Enjoy them while you can!

LMV, that is mean!!! -:)

Most locals dine in their neighborhoods. Walk around where ever you are staying during lunch or dinner time. Which places are crowded. You have found a good local place. They are usually no famous name with no famous cook--but the food and ambiance are good--and the price is usually a lot less.

Any type of cuisine , no budget spread.

Well, maybe.... not more than $30 for an entrée, and not sushi.

And sorry, but probably no chains (like TGI Fridays ) that we can eat at in Denver.
