Grab a bite of the Big Apple and a hostel in New York
Those looking for a weekend break or a holiday in the US may be tempted by an up and coming event in the Big Apple.

Booking a cheap hostel in New York will enable people to spend more money on food at the city's Restaurant Week spectacle.

Douglas Rogers, writing for the Telegraph, noted that people can eat at some of the diners in the iconic location for a fraction of what they would pay normally, so it may be worth checking out.

More than 250 eateries are in on the act, compared to just 25 when the idea was first implemented in 1992.

The extravaganza started last month and it has now been extended until September 6th, giving people more opportunity to attend and additional dates with which to book a New York hostel.

Mr Rogers pointed out that visitors will be able to get a prix-fixe three-course meal for around £22 and a lunch deal for about £15, which he noted has barely risen in price in the last 18 years.

He recommended David Burke Townhouse, which is set on the ground floor of a townhouse and he compared it to a scene from Alice in Wonderland.

"A narrow, lacquered bar area leads down to a high-ceilinged dining hall of red walls, glittering mirrors, orange banquettes and chandeliers made from frosted champagne glasses," is how Mr Rogers described the venue.

But there is an array of other restaurants that take part in the event from Bobby Van's Steakhouse on East 54th Street to Cafe Boulud, which could be better for someone who fancies tasting some French cuisine.
