What about Sushi and Jean-George locations? I've heard Perry Street is pretty reasonable for a Jean-George location

Great thanks! I appreciate your patient and friendly tone when responding. It's hard when you haven't visited somewhere to clarify expectations and what you are looking for!

Sorry to keep bugging you but What about Sushi places? you have a post on that somewhere?

Thanks, to be honest I don't know really how to fully specify everything but the poster above really clarified some things. We aren't picky eaters so the classic must try places rather than the hot right now is what I was looking for. Cheap to me may be impossible in NYC so I'm thinking 25/person for meals and like I said above 50-60 per person for our nicer night out. BUT if that's impossible to hit a really nice place for that much we can look further. we aren't big drinkers so pre tax/tip I'm thinking for us 2 150-180? Is that doable or do I need to adjust expectations?

Only 2 adults in the party, coming from rural south Georgia where the people in town freaked out over an Olive Garden! (but we moved from Atlanta where there is much more variety and specialty) so anything is better than at home!
We will be there Friday through Monday in June. I know NY is expensive but for our anniversary I would say 50-60 a person would be comfortable for us (I know this may limit us) And then for other meals I'm thinking 25 or less per person? Based on what I've seen. I'm sure hot dogs and pizza will be on our list of things to enjoy so we can adjust based on the lower cost meals like these!
We do plan on attending a yankees game and one or 2 broadway shows (I know this board is all about food but any theater tips are appreciated!)
Thanks so much! the way food and pricing is in NYC compared to STATESBORO Georgia is day and night so my knowledge of what to expect, what to think is cheap, and where to go is very limited! you've really helped a lot!

We are coming to NYC in June and want to sample some of the good food it has to offer... we do not have unlimited funds but I'd like to know from cheap lunch/brunch to anniversary dinner what are the Must Eat's? and if we only hit up one upscale/high end place where should it be.
I keep hearing 'tasting menu" "prix fixe" etc.... what would be the best choice with reasonable portion sizes?
