Yes, after almost a year I returned to my task from last summer of compiling a FAQ for this board. It is by no means complete or exhaustive, but it contains lots of good threads/info that should help answer regular questions.

I deliberately labeled it NYC FAQ since basically the rest of the state isn't discussed. Not a dismissal at all (big shout out to Ithaca! Eat at Just a Taste or grab pizza at The Nines if you get the chance ...) , I'm just not the right girl to collect it. In fact, there are lots of holes regarding the outer boroughs,restaurants, theaters, music ... but this is better than nothing. I highly encourage anyone to update this whole FAQ whenever they have the urge/time. You can also just reply to the individual posts and add to the linked threads.

Restaurants & food are favorite topics of conversation at this board (and in this city), below are many of the highlights. Many ethnicities are missing so if you don't see what you want check out for http://www.chowhound.com/ or http://newyork.citysearch.com/ for many more opinions. Please though, WHATEVER you do, don't eat in chain restaurants !!! There are way too many good options, the odds are in your favor.
