I’ve always been one of those people that everyone asks for restaurant advice. I eat out eight days a week and knew there were affordable options in New York City. I wrote 365 Guide New York City so anyone can enjoy the city that I love at a fraction of the cost.
365 Guide includes restaurant deals and bar specials in Manhattan plus seasonal favorites, the best pizza, awesome desserts and more. I hope you enjoy my advice on this blog and all the deals included in 365 Guide.
Please let me know if you’re looking for an affordable way to enjoy the restaurant and bar scene in New York City. I’m happy to help.
