New York has fine and inexpensive restaurants. It also has plenty that serve large portions of carbohydrate-laden stodge. Here are 50 good places that I tried during an extended visit from London. Most offer value as well as decent food.
ABC Cocina: Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s latest venue is boisterously loud. It’s good for the food and the buzz, not for the noise. His Latin-inspired menu features dishes such as pork tacos, cashews, apples and jalapeno hot sauce ($15). Information: http://www.abccocinanyc.com/ or +1-212-677-2233.
