The last group I was on the road with played the Plaza Hotel for a month and food in NYC is not inexpensive.
Two people in our group cooked together to save money and it was slightly embarrassing when their spice rack fell off the bellmans cart on our way into the hotel lobby but, even moreso when their toaster oven took out the power to the whole third floor.
I asked the elevator operator where all the hotel employees ate and he said you could get all you wanted in the basement cafeteria for $1.35.
Why suffer in silence? If you have questions, ask us. We want to help you get there and we know how to help keep you on track.
