    I'm taking the family next year and just thinking about the food. Any good places you've been to that are good for families.
    Not too expensive

    That's a bit like asking for dinner recommendations in London. At a minimum - where are you staying, what kind of food do you like?

    Went recently. My favourite for seafood Tacos was Los Maricos in Chelsea Market. Near the High Line.

    There's a great dim sum place in Chinatown. I can't remember what it's called though... the Golden Dragon or something, not that that's any help. :facepalm:

    Katz's Diner? Proper jewish deli stuff (think salt beef bagels) and an NYC institution.

    Is the knish bakery justdiwn the road still open, I suspect it may have been gentrified by now as it was at Houston and Bowery I think.

    • ETA: just checked and it's still open. Yonah Shimmell's. Google it. Really cheap .

    Mrs Shoes used to live in NY but it's changed so much since then

    And the Man v Food website isn't helpful. I was hoping to take on one of his challenges :oops:

    Murray Hill Diner - 33d and Lexington - "proper" diner with NY attitude.

    Great fresh fried chicken and accompaniments. Not the cheapest but well worth it imho. Homepage

    If you are making a trip over the river to Williamsburg (which I recommend as it only takes 30-40 mins on the subway) then Fette Sau is as good a BBQ place as you will find. Pay by weight. It's *really* good. Food
