Where to eat in New York City

“Boozy vibe” restaurants for dinner

Le Turtle

Small-ish, amazing cocktails and great food. If you’re taking someone on a date request the semi-private table right in front of the entrance. I recommend ordering the Dry aged beef carpaccio, Le Turtle steak and Hamachi tartare. The tequila cocktail was really good.

Bohemian

Basically Bohemian’s number is not to be found. Located behind a butcher shop, you need a referral to get a reservation and you’ll be lucky if you even find a reservation at a good time. So, although the reservation process may be tiring, it’s well worth it! 😉 I recommend getting the steak, sashimi, tartare, shrimps and burger (burger is cooked medium so if you prefer it well done make sure to request that). I’d definitely say Bohemian is date material and although I didn’t sit at the bar I definitely wouldn’t mind.

Sushi

Kurumazushi

(Midtown) Excellent, very fresh sushi. I advise sitting at the bar and having the Omakase for the full experience. The chef prepares a tasting menu of his choice, inform him before hand if you don’t eat certain things.

Sushi Seki

(Chelsea) If you’re in the mood for something different I recommend ordering their specialities. I wouldn’t recommend the omakase here as I personally prefer to have omakase in very traditional Japanese restaurants. Try to get a seat by the bar it’s part of the whole experience (speaking to the chef, asking him for the specials etc.), sitting at a table won’t make it much different than any other sushi restaurant.

Nakazawa

(West Village) Excellent omakase experience. You also have the choice of eating a la carte but I highly recommend omakase.

Other Cuisines

Decoy

Known for their heavenly peking duck, Decoy is another restaurant that’s difficult to get reservations. Make sure that you book in advance to guarantee finding a spot. When having the prix fixe, for the mains I recommend ordering the NY Strip Steak, we didn’t like the Truffle lobster so I don’t recommend it.Decoy Nyc New York

AbcV

Another Jean George success, AbcV is an excellent vegetarian option. I highly recommend it! Recommended dishes:

  • Artichoke
  • Avocado wrap
  • Beets salad
  • Spinach pasta
  • Fava bean and Labneh

I don’t recommend ordering dessert though – I didn’t LOVE anything. I recommend either the bottle of (taking the name from the receipt) J125 Mouton Noir or a glass of GL Pinot Noir.

Café Select

(Soho) Excellent option for a good well-priced meal. I definitely recommend the fish or the moules.

Carbone

(Greenwich village) Burrata, Rigatoni a la Vodka, Milanese.

Loosie Rouge

(Brooklyn) Amazing outdoor seating area. Their food and service is really good. I recommend the burger and the fried shrimp salad. Everything we ordered was great but these were my top 2.

The Spotted Pig

(Chelsea) Blue Cheese burger, if you don’t like blue cheese you can ask for the burger without that!

Rubi Rossa

(Soho) Well known for their pizza, never tried their pastas but apparently they’re excellent! Often difficult to find space but give it a try on Resy or just wait in line!

Ruby’s

(Soho) Owned by 2 Australians which you can tell by a few touches in the menu. Super casual. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner 7/7. I recommend:

  • Bronte burger – with a side of truffle fries.
  • Classic Burger
  • Chicken avocado salad
  • Sweet potato fries

Brunch spots

Everyone brunches in NYC but visitors usually end up at the mainstream spots. Let’s make sure that’s not the case for you! Here’s a little list of my favourite brunch spots in NYC.

NoMad Hotel

Lovely seating area with a skylight, the NoMad hotel offers a great brunch menu. I’d say my top 2 dishes were the Prawn fritters and the burger. Other popular items are the Chicken burger and Chicken sandwich.

Jacks wife Freda

(Carmine St) This is less packed than the Lafayette St one and the food is just as good! Recommended for brunch only.

Eataly

(Flatiron) My all time favourite. Many different places you can eat in, in Eataly. Ranges from a bakery to a Nutella bar, pizza restaurant and many more. Everything is freshly made. The food is so good there and the best part is you can also buy your groceries from there. I usually go for my much needed dose of fresh mortadella, bresaola and burrata.

Chobani

(Soho) Light snack when you’re on the run. My Favourite is the Fresh Fruit Granola.
