NYC Guide // A few of my favorite restaurants

I get asked a lot for recommendations for great restaurants when friends and family visit NYC.  These are a few of my current favorites (with links to their websites): Brunch & Lunch:

  • The Butcher’s Daughter in Nolita: Healthy, fresh, vegetarian brunch choices
  • Ruby’s also in Nolita: blog post here. Australian cafe (how fitting for me, an Aussie expat) with great coffee, juices, avo on toast and burgers
  • Little Collins in Midtown East: great brunch spot, great coffee as well (essential for an Australian)
  • ABC Kitchen in the Flatiron District: fresh farm to table dishes, connected to the most gorgeous homewares store imaginable
  • Five Leaves in Williamsburg: the ricotta pancakes!!!
  • (Lunch) Gansevoort Market in Meatpacking: curated market of local and delicious almost-food-cart/truck style options

Dinner (varying price ranges):

  • Buddakan in Chelsea/Meatpacking: incredible candle-lit Asian fusion restaurant.  Very fancy
  • Momofuku Má Pêche in Midtown: a communal a la carte style Asian-fusion restaurant
  • Marta in Midtown South/NoMad: blog post here an awesome Roman pizzerie restaurant connected to the Martha Washington Hotel
  • Bianca in Noho: blog post here. Great Italian, cash-only.
  • Empellon Taqueria in West Village: awesome tacos and margaritas
  • Beauty & Essex in Lower East Side:  Trendy restaurant where you enter through a jewelry/pawn shop
