Dining in New York is definitely a blast. So many cuisines there you could never get bored eating out. Plus most of the ethnic restaurants are very affordably priced. I tend to disagree when people talk about it as being a really expensive city to dine.

That article's kind of stupid though. You don't brag about how much you can spend there.

Call me a cheerleader but at first I was surprised that my former hometown Philly wasn't on the list. But then I actually read the slideshow and saw that money spent was a factor. I suppose that may be why - with all due respect to my new metro - DC made the cut. You actually get more bang for your buck for excellent quality in Philly compared to many other places.

"Scranton!" Ha! Nothing like self-deprecating humor.

New York is the greatest city for great food. I visit the city 3-6 times per year and it is always a priority to eat at my favs. You can go expensive or in expensive. My favs are mostly on the pricer side, but it is about quality for me when I am there. I think Jean-Georges Vonrichten, Tao, Ruby Foos and Danube are a must see!
