Is there anything better than eating as much food as you want…for one price?
That’s why we love a good all-you-can-eat restaurant, and luckily there are plenty across the city.
Here are 10 of the best all-you-can-eat deals in NYC, ranging from the typical buffets to unlimited pasta deals to sushi and more!
Let’s get eating:
Let’s Meat is the first all-you-can-eat Korean barbecue in Manhattan—a concept that has proven popular in places like Los Angeles and Korea over the years. There are two AYCE options to choose from, a premium and an original. The original is slightly cheaper (at $36.99) and includes 18 items: 14 proteins, five side dishes, and four vegetables. The premium choice (at $42.99) features all 18 items, but an additional 9 items which are made up of three side dishes, and six proteins that include seafood. Read more here.
