In a gritty city like New York, you've kind of got to embrace the saltiness of the streets. But still, when said saltiness starts to play a participating flavor in your anywhere-super-expensive, not-even-New-York-cheap dinner, it's time to do some digging.

Or at the very least you'll be bombarded by a dining room moonlighting as a den of houseflies. Which honestly, is pretty comparable.
