In case you missed it, Romera, the latest uber high-end restaurant to hit New York, opened last night with its $245 eleven-course menu in the Dream Downtown Hotel. Read our interview with the chef and decide what you think about the concept for yourself, but if you want hold off until some early reviews roll in why not save cash and think about eating cheap. Here’s our always evolving list of inexpensive eats. [The Feast]
97A Hoyt St | (718) 852-7510Montreal-style smoked meat for less than $10? Sign us up. We’ll be eating here even more when they make the move from Brooklyn to Manhattan with their upcoming fall expansion.
222 Waverly Pl | (212) 691-6101Now that this falafel spot has a roving food truck you can get Einat Admony’s prized chickpea balls anywhere, but the quality at the brick and mortar locations remains tops.
110 E. 7th St. | (212) 777-2151Sara Jenkins serves up what are arguably the best roast pork sandwiches in Manhattan at this tiny East Village spot. Don’t miss the side of roast potatoes with crispy pork ends.
61 Delancey St | (212) 925-5220Our favorite spot for Soba on the LES won’t set you back more than $20 per person, tops.
104-05 47th Ave. | (718) 699-2434This is the holy grail of Mexican tortilla making. They’ve become increasingly popular in the past few years (trendy restaurants like Stupak’s Empellon use their tortillas), so head here quickly.
