New York City is truly the city that never sleeps. Of the three nights we were in town, only once did we make it home before 2 AM. The rest of the nights went on into the early morning.
Eating, drinking and catching up with friends were the cause! Here’s where we went:
Breakfast: Garden Grill Café in Brooklyn: Delicious, friendly and reasonable. Breakfast for 4 was around $30 and the cook brought out two just cooked tapioca puddings just because.
Dinner: Seasonal: Austrian food restaurant near Central Park that has a well-deserved Michelin star.
Drinks: Tippler: Amazing bar under Chelsea Market that offers mixed drink menu and a great atmosphere. Plus a DJ named Huggy Bear playing a great mix (how can you go wrong with that?)
Breakfast: Small café in Brooklyn for breakfast sandwiches
Drinks: McSorleys The oldest Tavern in NYC. Your only drink choice is beer, either light or dark and 2-for-1. Go there.
Snack: Pomes Frites: Fresh, hot French fries with your choice of dipping sauces. Amazing.
Snack: Butterlane: Cupcakes with some of the best frosting I’ve ever tasted (and I don’t even like frosting)
Dinner: LidoItalian restraint. Not your typical Harlem cuisine but it has great food and a really enjoyable atmosphere.
Drinks: Bier International: Beer garden in Harlem. Good spot for after diner drinks.Fette Sau
Breakfast: Pipa: One of three restaurants connected to the ABC Home store. The food was fantastic. The best eggs benedict I’ve ever had. Hands down.
Dinner: Tree Bistro: The food was ok (Salmon was blah but the ravioli's were great). They also have enclosed garden seating.
Lunch: Fette Sau BBQ. So good. Drooling at the thought. Go there.
Wow. Reminiscing over what we ate and I think it’s safe to say that we made some great choices. Hope you enjoy my list of places to eat in New York City!
