Budget-conscious foodies just got 127 places to visit for a gourmet night out.

Proving that you don’t need to splash out to have an amazing meal in New York City, the Michelin Guide released its list of Bib Gourmand restaurants for 2018.

For the 13th year, the anonymous inspectors better known for ranking the world’s priciest restaurants fanned out to all five boroughs and brought back the best places where you can have two courses and a glass of wine or dessert for $40 or less (before tax and tip).

This year, 14 new entries made it onto the list for New York City. The Bronx's rising culinary scene added two Bib Gourmand-worthy restaurants, bringing its total to seven, while the neighborhood with the biggest gain was Greenwich/West Village, with three new entries. 

Michelin noted a trend of “divine Mexican restaurants” both here in the city, where four of the 14 new entries serve up destination-worthy tacos and modern takes, and nationwide.

Here's the full list of Bib Gourmand restaurants for 2018 by borough (new restaurants are highlighted in bold):
