Where we eat in NYC, updated for 2013

Jump to last reply

If you're planning a trip to New York, you could do a lot worse than to use this as a base for a dining guide.

This is not necessarily a "best of" list. Rather it's a good idea of where two native, married (m-f) NY'ers, tend to have their everyday meals and a few splurge places mixed in.

Enjoy!
