Battery Park City in Lower Manhattan is home to a building complex that offers a wide range of choices, especially for the more expensive tastes: High-end brands from Gucci to Hermes to restaurants for absolute gourmets are represented here.

If you find yourself in the Financial District or walking through Lower Manhattan, be sure to stop by. Brookfield Place is a great place to take a break if you’re near Ground Zero and the 9/11 Memorial & Museum. We recently had a delicious steak dinner at Del Frisco’s Grille in Brookfield Place New York after visiting One World Observatory. If you’re more into Mexican cuisine, El Vez is the place to go.

    01 El Vez

    This chic local spot is a very popular place for after-work cocktails. With great food and a nice atmosphere it is worth a visit, especially in the warmer months where you can sit outside. The portions are generous and the prices (main course from $15) are reasonable. Make sure to order a portion of chips and guacamole before you start your main course – the best in town!

    02 Hudson Eats

    In the Hudson Eats you can enjoy a great view of the Hudson River and the Statue of Liberty. The restaurants are more in the upscale segment, so not really low budget, but even here there are a few alternatives to save a little money. You can find for example the Blue Ribbon Sushi Bar, Umami Burger and Dos Toros Taqueria. The architecture inside is also very impressive. Not only culinary is a visit to Hudson Eats worthwhile.

  5. Shake_Shack_180105140510001

    05 Shake Shack

    Shake Shack is a burger chain with more than 20 stores in New York alone. We got this spot recommended by a New Yorker as the “best burger in town” with the warning that you have to wait an hour for your burger – but it was worth the wait! From the outside the burger shop may seem quite inconspicuous, but the burgers are certainly among the best in New York.
