10 Morton St, New York, NY 10014, USA
Bosie's Tea Parlor is something of an unexpected find. Located on charming brownstone-studded Morton Street in the West Village, it's one part curated tea oasis, one part wild child in its dessert experiments. Skeptics may feel the title of the...
176 Perry St, New York, NY 10014, USA
One of the best and reasonably priced tasting menu's I've had in NYC. Jean George always gets it right and ended the 6 course culinary delight with an explosion of chocolate. Chocolate ice-cream, chocolate covered almonds, chocolate mousse all...
9 Pell St, New York, NY 10013, USA
When I was introduced to soup dumplings by a NYC friend in Chinatown, I was immediately intrigued. They're a strange experience the first time, the sort of food that has to be played with a little before it can be eaten. Even while I was eating, a...
257 Bowery, New York, NY 10002, USA
Star architect Norman Foster has created a thin vertical wall, built on a wisp of a site (25 by 100 feet). It’s nine stories tall and features a giant Ferrari red elevator—12 by 20 feet—that also doubles as an exhibition space.
62 Grand St, New York, NY 10013, USA
Even if you’re not into the shabby chic aesthetic, I dare you to stroll through interior decorator Rachel Ashwell’s loft space and not be converted—she had me at giant, loosely stuffed goose-down pillows. For you it might be the worn, pale white...
41 E 78th St, New York, NY 10075, USA
There’s nothing “homey” about the stark white interior, or the glass jewel case display counters, or the ornate cakes exhibited inside them. Then again, Lady M isn’t your grandmother’s bakery. To wit, their signature cake is composed of 20...
99 Gansevoort St, New York, NY 10014, USA
For most of its history, the Whitney Museum, originally founded by Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney in 1931, was located on New York's Upper East Side, in the building that now houses the Met Breuer. In 2015, it reopened in a new, larger space designed...
421 E 61st St, New York, NY 10065, USA
First constructed as a carriage house in 1799, then converted into a hotel in 1826, the Mount Vernon Hotel is not only one of the oldest buildings in Manhattan but also a fascinating slice of what life was like in NY C back when this part of the...
1000 5th Ave, New York, NY 10028, USA
The Metropolitan Museum of Art—or, commonly, the Met—is one of the world's great museums, alongside the Louvre, the British Museum, and a handful of others. It would be easy to devote an entire week's visit to the museum alone, and...
188 Ludlow St, New York, NY 10002, USA
'They' say Rome has the best gelato in Italy. Since I haven't been to every town in Italy, I can't confirm that. Neither, though, can I deny it because when I tasted the gelato at Gelateria del Teatro while in Roma I definitely experienced...
185 W 80th St, New York, NY 10024, USA
Apparently this place, in a quiet-yet-lively residential area of Manhattan's upper west side, occasionally has free wine tastings at various nearby venues. It's really close to a few chic bistros & a Ricky's (drugstore) location, so you can pick...
100 Allen St, New York, NY 10002, USA
The fried noodles with seafood and vegetables from Congee Village comprise this little bowl of heaven. I love stepping into a restaurant and realizing that most of the customers are people from the country where the restaurants cuisine comes from....
210 10th Ave, New York, NY 10011, USA
For much of its history, the western edges of Manhattan neighborhoods like the West Village and Chelsea consisted of small manufacturing buildings and warehouses that served the piers on the Hudson River. Over time, those factories were replaced...
251 E 13th St, New York, NY 10003, USA
Momofuku Milk Bar is one of those places in NYC that's always being raved about. Its desserts are incredible, it's worth the wait in line, best place to get your sugar fix...... It's all true! Ok, maybe not the 'best' part because I still haven't...
100 Stanton St, New York, NY 10002, USA
Gooey, crispy, cheesy, buttery: The list of adjectives goes on for this Lower East Side grilled cheese purveyor. Don't expect the sammies Mom made for your after-school snack; no Wonderbread or Kraft singles here. Billed as "Super Fancy Grilled...
1515 Teaneck Rd, Teaneck, NJ 07666, USA
My last three trips to NYC I’ve found myself at Elsa in the East Village. It’s one of those places you just always end up. Good cocktails and a really nice atmosphere makes it an easy stop. Thanks to my friend and NYC PR powerhouse Michelle Aselta...
189 Spring St, New York, NY 10012, USA
Pastry chef Dominique Ansel loves the classic croissant so much that he revived the lesser known Brittany pastry, the Kouign Amann, in his SoHo bakery. The Kouign Amann is made out of a croissant-like dough with the addition of sugar. One bite and...
18 Cornelia St #1, New York, NY 10014, USA
Authentic, savory, seasonal Provencal bistro dishes. Warm and welcoming service from familiar faces. A cozy atmosphere in a jewel box of a dining room. These are the reasons why I have come back to Le Gigot again and again over the years. The...
224 Lafayette St, New York, NY 10012, USA
It can be extremely difficult to keep up with cool restaurant openings in NYC. My trick? I look for the lineups. On Soho's edge, Jack's Wife Freda had a buzz that caught my attention. When I returned, I was able to get a table solo at this packed...
191 Chrystie St, New York, NY 10002, USA
Walk quickly and you'll miss the unassuming black and glass decor of the ECC. That said, it's very busy with those in-the-know cocktail connoisseurs. Mixologists will custom make your drink, if you ask nicely. There is a secret here. I can't tell...
Governors Island, New York, NY 11231, USA
Located in the middle of New York harbor, less than half a mile from Manhattan (and even closer to Brooklyn), 172-acre Governors Island feels like a world unto itself, far from the bustling city. It has played a key role in the defense of New York...
3438, 366 Union Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11211, USA
What do you get when you mix snails, frog legs, tacos, and hot chilies with Aussie bartenders and live music? The answer is hidden in Williamsburg, masquerading as your everyday, neighborhood haunt, and it can be easily missed if you're not...
MoMA PS1, 22-25 Jackson Ave, Long Island City, NY 11101, USA
Set in a school, M Wells dinette goes along with the theme, with desks facing the front and food menus written in school notebooks and on chalk boards. But the food is anything but simple - fabulous smoked honey beets, terrines, lamb, rabbit and...
209 Elizabeth St, New York, NY 10012, USA
Most of the boutiques and shops in Nolita and SoHo are a bit above my price range and yet it's a neighborhood I find myself drawn to very often. For only one reason. The Elizabeth Street Sculpture Garden. An exquisite green space that on a warm...
407 W 42nd St, New York, NY 10036, USA
In Manhattan, theres nothing like a night out at the theater. Steps from the Great White Way is the underground Laurie Beechman Theatre, located within the West Bank Cafe. A quintessential fixture in the New York theatre scene, the cabaret space...
211 W Broadway # 1, New York, NY 10013, USA
Maslow 6 is an exceptional wine store. Owner Keri Jackson Kunzle organizes her store by intensity with, generally speaking, whites toward the front and reds to the back. Instead of bottles from the predictable countries alone, she also features...
