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.
One of my favorite things about New York City is the endless stream of restaurants. While I am certainly guilty of revisiting old favorites, I definitely keep an eye opened for new places to try. Today’s newcomer is tomorrows good old standard. Give the new guys a chance.
Blake Lane (1429 Third Avenue) Simple, colorful plates are served at this California style eatery that’s big on bowls, salads and sandwiches. From 4-7 p.m. daily much on spiced pumpkin popcorn ($2), deviled eggs ($3) or guacamole with chips ($5) at the bar. Beer is $5, cocktails $7 and assorted wines $8. Ingredients are locally sourced and the ambience is industrial modern chic. While they are health conscious, they serve creative moderately priced veggie and non-veg dishes. Try the tuna tartine ($12) or the charred […]
Obviously, there are a ton of dining options in New York City. Sometimes I’m in the mood for comfy and casual meals while other times I long to sample new trendy bites and inventive cocktails. Because of the Holidays, I’m out even more exploring….and shopping…my way through town. If you feel like splurging, check out these gems.
The Stinger Cocktail Bar & Kitchen (300 West 44th Street) Inside the InterContinental Times Square lives The Stinger. Chef Todd English is utilizing the hotel’s rooftop beehives to create an inviting cocktail program that is both refreshing and sweet. I guarantee you’ve never tasted honey this fresh. If you’re meeting friends for drinks after work or shopping, make this pit stop to rejuvenate. House made craft cocktails come in three sizes starting at $9 but definitely […]
OK, folks, it’s time to stop eating with reckless abandon and widdle down that waistline once again. Why can’t the Holiday parties come without consequence?? Fear not, you can still go out and enjoy fresh seafood and sushi to keep the pounds from piling on. In this New Year, follow the sushi train to a healthier weight.
Asuka Sushi (300 West 23rd Street) Sushi can not only be affordable but the savings increase during lunch time. From 11 a.m.-4 p.m., I recommend the Maki Lunch Special. Any two rolls are $9 and any three rolls, $12. Both come with either miso soup or a salad. The bento box for $9.50 comes with miso soup, salad, rice, California Roll and shrimp shumai. You’ll still make out if you order from the menu with rolls starting […]
If going out on Super Bowl Sunday is at the top of your to-do-list, check out this weeks picks for great food and fair prices.
Amity Hall (2 locations) During games score points with $20 buckets (5 beers) and pitchers. If you like wings, the more you order, the more you save. They have twenty foot projection screens and dozens of tv’s. For large groups this place is a win with forty beers on tap. Monday through Friday from 12-7 p.m. enjoy $5 beer and well drinks and $6 wines. Carolina Panthers fans flock to these deals at the downtown location.
The Watering Hole (106 East 19th Street) Monday through Friday from 12-8 p.m. feast on $5 drafts, well drinks and […]
Is there anything more relaxing than an abundant boozy brunch? Suddenly that boring old work week seems to melt away. While restaurants offering brunch are plentiful, not all are “eggceptional.” If you have free time this weekend, grab a friend and have a leisurely afternoon.
Delilah (155 Rivington Street) For $35 enjoy unlimited mimosas and Bloody Mary’s with your brunch at Delilah. The scrambled eggs with chorizo or the spicy lamb sliders are great choices. As a bonus, if you like sleeping in, the menu is served until 5:30 p.m. This Mediterranean newcomer packs tons of creative flavors in their menu and beverages. Renowned mixologist Rael Petit curated a complex but fun cocktail program. When they take the time to stew tequila with carrot root and tumeric, you know you […]
I’m happy to see that I’m not the only one who needs to shed those holiday pounds. If you didn’t get enough sushi suggestions last week, this weeks column should inspire you to give seafood a whirl. You’ll look and feel better and these deals will make the beginning of 2017 affordable.
Sushi Roxx (120 East 39th Street) Why not add a little cardio to your sushi dining experience? Not only does Sushi Roxx dish out delicious signature rolls, but the staff serves up choreographed dance routines and knock your socks off musical numbers every 15-20 minutes. In between courses you can dance away the calories! I recommend the Spice Girl ($16) roll […]
