Hey ladies! We originally planned to go to NYC on our honeymoon but went with a sunny destination instead. Now we’re planning our NYC trip for our 1st anniversary in May.
We want to go for a nice dinner one night. We don’t want to spend more than $300. Even less wOuld be awesome, haha. Does anyone have some suggestions? We like pretty much all types of food except I don’t like any kind of seafood.
Let’s hear some recommendations!!!!! 🙂

IDK of any nice restaurants, but you gotta go to Lombardi’s for pizza!! It was the first pizzaria in the USA. The pizza AND caesar salads are so so good! *drool*

I had dinner at Maialino recently and it was delicious.

I haven’t been to Maialino but hear so much good stuff htat I definitely second that!
My fave NYC spot closed (Convivio) but its chef/owners have a few other options- alto, Marea, etc. I also love Lupa, on Thompson St., which is a little more casual.
My Fiance likes Keen’s steakhouse, guy friends like Momofuko.
And if you want good pizza, Lombardi’s is great, and John’s on Bleecker street is REALLY phenomenal. My fave pizza ever, plus it’s in such an awesome neighborhood.
Enjoy! NYC is a great city for food!

Beauty and Essex is AMAZING!!! Everything is so good there and the place is really cool. Another romantic suggestion would be The River Cafe. It’s in Brooklyn right by the river. Food was good and when we went it was a set price of $95 for 3 courses. The food is not as good as Beauty and Essex but the place is very pretty and romantic.
My other favorites are
Joe Shanghai for Soup Dumplings.
Shake Shack – they have this amazing mushrrom cheese burger
BLT Burger- burgers was ok but they have this AMAZING Rocky Road milkshake
So many good places to eat in NYC! Good luck choosing.

I concur on Joes Shanghai but ONLY the one in chinatown. The terrible service is part of its charm

I second One if By Land, Two if by Sea. Super romantic (restaurant with the highest number of proposals in NYC), the food and service is AMAZING! Plus, it was Aaron Burr’s old carriage house. Highly recommended.

Porter House in the Time Warner Center. It’s super nice, and I don’t even eat steak!

I second Savored – you spend $10 and you save 30% – you can’t beat that! Also, I have no doubt that you will be able to spend all your money on food!
