Where To Eat & Drink In New York

Ah NYC. It’s become our happy place. The best vibes, amazing people, and not to mention the best restaurants in the US! For us, vacation means basically eating and drinking our way through wherever we are. So if you’re headed to New York anytime soon, here’s a roundup of our favorite places + what to order + some helpful tips we learned. Also- we have stayed at @publichotels , 11 Howard & Hotel Chelsea and LOVED them all for different reasons.

@buvettenyc walk in only, no rez. Order the latte, a fresh squeezed OJ, almond croissant and Croque-Monsieur. Charming and delish.
@laccrabranyc our favorite quick breaky Coffee + Pastry in the city. GREAT coffee, and be sure to get the chocolate croissant + cardamom bun.
@russanddaughters a nyc staple. Expect a decently long wait. Order the lox bagel on an everything w/ scallion cream cheese + the works.

@fairfaxnyc is also really delicious for breakfast.

@ippudo the best ramen you’ll have. Obviously order the ramen, but also get the cucumber app and chicken bun.
@JeffreysGrocery one of our favorites. Incredible vibe, amazing staff, and delish cocktails & seafood. Order the Bloody Mary – it’s my fave in the city.
@MadameVoNYC was recommended to me by @fadia and she did not steer us wrong. This is a must go to! Order the chicken wings (INSANELY GOOD) and obviously the pho.

@ledivenyc the most charming French bistro that transported us to Paris. Killer natural wine list! Order the artichoke, charcuterie plate, olives, & steak frites.
@donangienyc since rezzos are nearly impossible, get there at 4:15 before they open to try to snag a seat at the bar. One of the best meals of 2022. Order one a sig cocktail, stuffed garlic flatbread, Chrysanthemum salad, broccolini, sweet potatoes and rolled lasagna. 10 outta 10.
@forsythia_nyc vibes on vibes. Killer pasta and entrees. The tortelli do zucca, steak and carbonara were especially delicious!
@lilfrankies listen – you just have to go here ok? we go anytime we are win nyc. Order the Caprese & Diavola pizza as the app, Spaghetti Limone, and the banana split. Heads up, it’s cash only.

@arthurandsons is probably my favorite “NYC Italian.” Everything is FANTASTIC from ambience to the service to of course – the food. Get everything.
