New York City has something to offer everyone when it comes to off-campus dining. The city features world-renowned chefs, hidden hot spots, the best delis, and some of the best pizza in the world. There are also many restaurants that cater to specific needs, such as vegetarian or kosher. Eating in NYC can be a little expensive, though, but if you wander around, a lot of restaurants have lunch specials or even student discounts. Take advantage of the famous street vendors; you can find a lot of great food for a cheap price this way.
Another advantage to NYC dining is that a lot of restaurants and delis are open late or 24 hours. You can venture outside at midnight and get whatever you desire. This is helpful when you need a quick snack for those late-night study sessions or after a crazy night out at a club.
