  • New York City is famous for its world-class cuisine.
  • Each year, the Michelin Guide judges release their list of Bib Gourmands, the best inexpensive restaurants in a city.
  • Meals here cost less than $US40.

New York City has no shortage of world-class restaurants, but many are too expensive for those who don’t make six-figure salaries. Still, there are plenty of high-quality options that offer reasonably priced meals.

Each year, the judges of the Michelin Guide award the title of Bib Gourmand to their favourite inexpensive restaurants. To qualify for the list, the restaurants must be able to offer two courses and a glass of wine or dessert for no more than $US40, before tax.

Below are this year’s Bib Gourmand recipients:
