    Nice comparison with the food cost. Wow, Olives and Cheese $11, crazy. Here in Mostar the Old town charges double by charging in Euro, most tourists don’t know the local price, but the travelers seem to catch on. But outside the Old town most places charge the local rate and it is very very reasonable.

      Yes Amy, we found some cheap eats too. We had some great breakfasts for about $25. There are some excellent diners and cafes also, but we thought that this was a very fun post for our first day back from New York:)

    Oh dear, there’s nothing more maddening than a skimpy cheese plate… I always end up asking for bread when that happens as I desperately try to draw out the cheese-eating experience.

    I think that the cost of dining in NYC is definitely higher than in other cities. But there are a lot of great cheaper restaurants out there, too. At least the quality of the food is good, right?

    I see that the photos are tagged Otto — is that where you went? I really like that place. Never had the cheese plate (luckily!) but enjoy their pastas & pizzas.
