    • ‘ Le Bernardin’ is my favorite restaurant in Manhattan but a tasting menu there is $180.

    • Portions are too small for someone with a serious sweet tooth
    • A three-course dessert tasting and a coffee would be about $15

    • Do not forget to get lots of hot green sauce to go with it
    • Two can split a chicken – about $8 per head

    • The cost per head would be about $15
  • 9. 4. Jean Georges 1 Central Park West
    • Great food by a great chef in a great setting
    • Service is not too great
    • Whichever way you look at it; The prix fixe lunch at $25 is a steal.
  • 10. 3. Joe’s Shanghai 9 Pell Street
    • Crab meat and pork soup dumplings are what you come here to eat
    • The rest of the food is not bad either
    • For dessert, try the ‘Chinese ice cream factory’ next door
    • About $15 per head would be approximately what you spend at Joe’s

    • The Cafe is good; no need to go inside for the more expensive food
    • The Smorgasbord gives you a sampling of great Scandinavian cuisine
    • The daily traditional Swedish meal is a great deal too.
    • Either of the above will cost below $25
  • 12. 1. Churrascaria Plataforma 316 W. 49th St.
    • A meat lover’s paradise; a buffet starring meats grilled Brazilian-style
    • Salads looked good but I couldn’t get distracted from the meat
    • I even forgot to save space for the dessert
    • An all you can eat lunch for $35
  • 13.
    • This list is restricted by:
    • My wallet – That is why a list of budget eats
    • My tastes – I have not listed any Indian restaurants as I find better ones in India
    • I love tapas but I did not find any place that really sets itself apart
    • I don’t drink alcohol, so the wine list does not play a role in my ratings
  • 14. Have Fun Use the list
