The good thing about living here and and eating cheap is you don’t have to be saddled with the same old cheap stuff you’ve been eating for a whole year. You can still be culinarily polyamorous even if you’re financially limited, because people are either opening new restaurants with good cheap stuff or just pointing out places you hadn’t known about before. Take New York Magazine‘s 30 best new cheap eats in New York, which is full of cheap new places you should try, with 9 of the of 30 places in Brooklyn. After all, why add long transportation to part of the opportunity cost of eating new cheap food?
