TOP RESTAURANTS OF 2008 (1 - 20)

As I wrote yesterday, I'm posting a list of my 40 favorite New York City restaurants of 2008 on this site. The reason being that the majority of the places I eat at tend to be very affordable. I'm including a price guideline which represents the price of an average entree at each restaurant. At only five of 40 places was the average entree more than $20. Unlike many restaurant lists, which feature places that opened during the calendar year, my list includes restaurants that I dined at for the first time in 2008. Here are the top 20!

$ - Less Than $10 Per Entree
$$ - $10 - $20 Per Entree
$$$ - $20 - $30 Per Entree
$$$$ - More Than $30 Per Entree
