Wondering where to eat in New York? The Big Apple boasts one of the world's finest dining scenes with a seemingly endless array of cusines and restaurants to choose from. New York has 76 Michelin–starred restaurants as of the last guide (six three star, 10 two star and 60 one star), but if you want a Michelin–standard lunch without the price tag, where do you go?

You could try the lounge menu at three star Le Bernardin, or of course, any one of New York's high end sushi stops, providing you order frugally and avoid the omakase. However, we've compiled a list of eight Michelin restaurants in New York (sorry, all Manhattan) where you can enjoy a full lunch for under $50 (excluding wine and service). Find out where to eat in New York without completely cleaning out your bank account.
