This year foodies learned what those of us with decidedly thin pockets have always known: less is more. Although this year’s New York Magazine Cheap Eats issue is lined with a few unpredictable fusion spots, the real stars this year are the old-school American classics. Brooklyn stars as well, getting a bump to 18 spots in this year’s list, as opposed to 15 last year. Donuts, burgers, big-ass sandwiches, and barbeque have always had a special place in our hearts, and people are on the fact that you can find ’em here for cheap. Of course, no list is perfect, what do you think they missed?
