My wife and I are (potentially) coming down from Burlington VT to NYC for a week-ish in January. We've lived there for a brief time a number of years ago, in Astoria, but I know plenty of new and exciting places have cropped up since then. (I was going to put this in the NYC section but I thought more people would see it here.) This seems like a silly post in a way because so much of this site is devoted to great eats in NYC, but as someone who doesn't live there it can be tough to weed out the pretty good from the truly amazing and unmissable, so I am hoping for some varied favorites. I should mention we are vegetarians and are unlikely to drop $500 on a dinner. Otherwise, have at it, and thanks!
