    The Mermaid Inn on the Upper West Side has a a great oyster happy hour, and excellent seafood generally.

    For cool atmosphere and very good, inexpensive food, try Sweetwater in the Greenpoint neighborhood of Brooklyn.

    There are so many, it is difficult to choose. One of my favorite "go to" restaurants is Crispo. They set the bar for Spaghetti Carbonara and it's outstanding. They also have great back patio (all the way in the back) which is a nice respite from the busy city.

    Hola Valerie!! Mine are Maisonand Le Pain Quotidien. Maison is a brasserie type restaurant and an excellent choice for a special dinner, good ambience, excellent food at a very affordable price. Le Pain Quotidien offers an outstanding cuisine (bakery) having the best menus for breakfast or lunch ever. I would like to add 2 places that I like a lot which are Fresh & Co and Shake Shack. These options are in case you want to grab a sandwich, a salad or a burger. Ingredients are very fresh, healthy and well cooked.

    Hope this helps!! Saludos.

    Benny's Burritos on Greenwich St is great! I've never gotten anything bad and the portions are good. Its busy, ALWAYS, but earlier is better if you don't want to wait too long. But a busy restaurant in NYC is a good thing.
