    The Sparks Steakhouse suggestion above is on-point; personally, I always found Luger's overrated, but both are objectively good.

    If nothing else, go to Gramercy Tavern; do the bar/front room seating (casual, walk in only, no reservations accepted). The same superlative, wood-fired oven kitchen services both that area and the fancy, higher-priced formal dining room. I enjoy both, but honestly the casual side of the house is better.

    [Edit:] You're going to pay through the nose for a hotel, whether it's something decent, something trashy, or something excellent. Take a look at the Lowell over on East 63rd - yes, it's expensive and old fashioned, but it's also beautiful, has working fireplaces in the rooms, has service you won't find at NYC hotels twice the price...and is right next door to Club Macanudo, which has excellent cigars, Laphroaig 30, and the best cuban sandwich I've ever eaten.[/Edit]

    After paying for expensive hotel and steak dinner, head out to Brooklyn for cheaper ethnic foods.

    Hotdogs and bagels are also some of NYC's finest!

    When I read things like “$600 a night”

    All I think is 1500 rounds of Malaysian 7.62x51, 3000 rounds of Golden Tiger 7.62x39......and 2 nights.....that’s another FAL.

    I used to think that too. Now I think $600 for a hotel room is a lot cheaper than the bigger house I'd need if I kept buying guns and ammo.
