The Robs have bestowed their annual list of cheap eats upon the people of New York City. The New York critics declare that Bunker in Ridgewood is the best new cheap eats restaurant of the year, while the best overall inexpensive bite is the bagel with lox and cream cheese from East River Bread's stand at Smorgasburg. Georgian food gets a nod for "best new cheap-eats cuisine," and the Robs also offer guides to cheap new fast-food style burgers, barbecue, and crazy sandwiches.
18 restaurants are listed as $25 and under picks, including Nightingale 9, Hybird, Pok Pok Phat Thai, Mama Joy's, and Zizi Limona. Although the issue profiles many dirt-cheap dishes, the critics also recommend the $14 ramen at Ganso, a $16 meatball pizza for one at Tufino, and the $16 chicken entree at Glasserie, which does not come with a side. And for the sweet freaks out there, Rob and Robin give their list of the year's best donuts.
