My recent trip to NYC kinda revolved around eating, and I was totally okay with that! The funniest thing was that some of my favorite places were the ones we discovered accidentally. So, from my recent NYC trip, I bring you places I would DEFINITELY visit again. Just in case you’re in the area and are looking for a recommendation. 🙂
157 Second Avenue, New York, NY 10003
Between 9th and 10th Street
phone: (212) 375-9555
Everyone I went here with ordered something different and all of us were in awe of how deliciously delicious it all was. I highly recommend the norma bruschetta with roasted eggplant, fresh sliced tomato and feta cheese. OMG yum!
1634 Broadway, New York, NY 10019
Between 50th and 51st Street
phone: (212) 586-3100
I am not always a fan of Chinese or Thai food (Japanese I adore, however), but the salmon dish I ordered here was shockingly nummy! And it came with some kind of ginger curry over rice that I could have eaten a triple helping of.
All I knew was that I was in the mood for Mediterranean food, so we looked online and found this place… AND I AM SO GLAD WE DID! My friend and I ordered a bunch of different things to share and it was all fantastic.
232 Bleeker St, New York, NY 10014
On the corner of Bleeker St. and Carmine St.
phone: (212) 255-6752
Relatively inexpensive and family friendly, this place was a true accidental find, but it was worth it. Great Italian cuisine set in a adorable neighborhood.
42 East 20th St, New York, NY 10003
Between Park Avenue South and Broadway
Not an accidental find, but even expecting to enjoy this restaurant I thought it wouldn’t be worth the high price tag. I was wrong. The food was incredible and the service made the night unforgettable.
West 45th St, New York, NY 10036
Between Broadway and 8th Ave.
phone: (212) 302-2000
The Junior’s website and Google maps can’t agree on the address, but the comfort food (especially the cheesecake) is fantastic anyway!
Alice’s Tea Cup
156 E 64th St, New York, NY 10021
Just off Lexington Ave
phone: (212) 486-9200
I’m normally not a fan of English teas or breakfast in general, but this adorable little tea shop was enough to change my mind. Their scones crumble in your hands and their food is delicious! Plus the Alice decor throughout always gives you something interesting to look at.
Somewhere around 53rd St and 6th Ave
Wherever they set up
No trip to NYC is complete without street food and this place is one of the best I’ve ever found. Usually on the corner of 53rd and 6th, they open at 7 pm and run until 5 am serving the best chicken and rice I’ve ever had. And it’s only $6!
