No matter what the economic climate, New York City restaurants never lose their ability to keep rich and poor alike preferring to eat out rather than stay home. Celebrity-chef enclaves
continue to sizzle, yet restaurants for those with more modest food budgets also are opening at a rapid clip, to a point where New York City has more than 18,000 eating establishments. Many glamorous names from the past retain their luster, and the East Village offers relaxing, new age alternatives to the more formal downtown dining scene.
From noodles in Chinatown to savory prime rib at top-rung steakhouses, from pizza by the slice in lower Manhattan to high end Soul Food in Harlem, from the Broadway lights of Times Square to the healthy alternatives for takeout or delivery like hand-rolled bagels, nonfat cream cheeses and custom salads along 7th Avenue, the Big Apple has a juicy culinary spectrum all its own.
