NYMag’s Eat Cheap Issue Continues the Expensive Cheap Eats Trend
I guess there are very few trendy restaurants in Midtown because it seems like all the new hot spots around the city that are vaguely under $25 made NYMag’s cut on their annual Cheap Eats issue and barely any are in Midtown. It should really be called Cheap(ish) Eats (That Opened Within the Last Year or Two and Are Already Hugely Popular). Sure, we got the inclusion of Don Antonio’s $23 (!) racchetta pizza, an interview with Danji chef Hooni Kim, a mention of the steamed buns on Oceana’s bar menu and Ma Peche’s lobster bun, but the only place we get real true cheap love (I’m talking the under $10 type) is with the $.75 cent slice from 2 Bros. Pizza, a pretzel from a cart on 43rd and Sixth, and street meat from La Baguette Café truck in the section where Adam Platt rates dirt cheap food. This is what we do all year long, thank you very much!
