went to cafe habana today for the cuban sandwich, fucking good, only finished half, the rest will be dinner. also picked up a couple mini cheesecakes from eileen's for dessert tonight. was thinking about fighting through the line for free MoMA but not sure if i'm up for the footwork

PS1 in brooklyn is a very interesting - and just a few stations from GCT. Personally, I tend to enjoy PS1 visits a lot more than I enjoy MOMA visits.

And that cuban sandwich is great.

Also, a good Banh Mi is always tasty - plenty of places in chinatown, or hit up Nicky's:

We booked a trip to NYC from April 20th-24th for our first wedding anniversary (the 22nd). After we booked the flight and our hotel (Gild Hall on Gold St -- looked nice and we got a good deal), our budget took a huge hit because of an unexpected trip we'll have to make a few weeks later to deal with a family situation. We're still planning to go to Balthazar for brunch on our anniversary and maybe to Black Mountain for dinner/drinks later, but we're open to other suggestions. Other than that, our budget has to be on the super-cheap...so meals on the go (we're thinking Russ and Daughters, Katz's, and lots of pizza), happy hour specials, and dive bars...spending most of our days wandering around, exploring by foot, and getting lost...and a few art galleries (the MOMA for sure...plus my wife is a photographer and there's lots of smaller galleries on her list). I've read through this thread...but welcome any other suggestions in our area (we'll probably stick to LES, SoHo, Chelsea, and Brooklyn). Also, recommendations for good espresso/coffee bars would be appreciated!

For a cheaper, reliable meal, go to Freeman's for dinner. In BK I recommend Red Hen Bakery. They have some nice sweets there. I still heartily recommend Toto Ramen, but be prepared for a wait. Hung Ry, as per GDL's rec is very solid, and not terribly expensive for lunch.
