New York City is a lot of things – Big Apple, the Capital of the World, the City That Never Sleeps to name a few – but cheap isn’t usually the first word that springs to mind.

I can not stand wasted food and watching people eat at a buffet pokes at my OCD. The boys used to be bad about this. While we rarely eat out anymore, they will eat what they take.
