People rant and rave about New York regarding food and dining. So many great restaurants. The best pizza, Chinese food, bagel, tap water. Blah-blah-blah.

The truth about what makes New York notable, food-wise, is that there is a real diversity of menus tailored to different budgets. You can eat good Italian, Chinese, Indian, Korean, vegetarian, whatever, without having to spend untenable amounts of money. But you need a guide. There are as many bad venues in New York, perhaps more, than in any other major city. High rents mean people often cut corners. Where do you turn for reliable advice? Debra at eatquestnyc!
