I need to spend a month in the city doing research, so I was wondering how much I should plan on spending for food?

I don't cook, so it'll all be eating out, but I don't eat much and no fancy restaurants.

any ideas?

It all depends on how much you eat.

Are you saying you'll even be eating breakfast out? I don't consider making a cup of coffee and having a bagel 'cooking.'

It depends also where in the city you are staying. If you budget $20 a day you'll be ok if you eat at cheap places...you can get by for less if you eat prepared foods from the grocery store or fast-food type restaurants, or you can certainly spend quite a bit more. It really depends on the choices you make.

If you eat cheap and will not be going to fancy, sit down restaurants...$30 a day should be good. This is for food only though.
