New York is a huge market to cover

Thanks for taking the time with us this week. Your answers have been very informative and thorough.
As a long distance, long time reader of the NYT I have always been interested in the $25 and under column. This is for two reasons-1) I live in a place (New Orleans) where we have some of the highest quality and most interesting inexpensive dining in the country and I always like to see how they compare to restaurants in other locales 2) Because when I come to New York I can usually only manage to expense one or two big deal meals and for the rest of the trip I am looking for good to great on the cheap.
My question for you is this:
How do you go about selecting the places that you end up reviewing? Clearly, you have an endless amount of choices and you could, if you felt like it, just eat at places whose cuisines are appealing to you, as opposed to covering many different kinds of food and dining establishments. So what is your usual criteria for covering a restaurant-personal choice, assignment, reader recs, all of the above?
There's a train everyday, leaving either way...
