NYC Restaurant Guide







I’ve eaten my share of good food in this city. You could say I’m a little obsessed. Here is a list of some of my faves. Asterisks (*) indicate ones I’m particularly obsessed with.

Top Ten
  1. Juliana’s: it’s in Brooklyn but we think it’s the best in the city; get the No 1 Special pizza, Patsy’s favorite
  2. Jacob’s Pickles: amazing Southern food
  3. Norma’s at Le Parker Meridien: weekend brunch is a big deal in NYC and this is THE best; get the WazZa or the crispy french toast (kind of spendy)
  4. Joe’s Shanghai: hole in the wall place in Chinatown, best soup dumplings in the city
  5. Panna II: wonderful Indian food, eat under chili pepper lights and Christmas lights
  6. Wafels and Dinges: great waffle truck by Lincoln Center and base of Brooklyn Bridge, get anything with Spekulos
  7. Chelsea Market: lots of great restaurants and shops, we love Budhakan, Rana, Sarabeth’s
  8. Shalel Lounge: delicious homemade Mediterranean food, really fun vibe
  9. Eataly: restaurants and market with imported foods from Europe
  10. Bare Burger or Shake Shack: NYC burger chains: Bare Burger is really fresh and has really unique meats like bison or ostrich; Shake Shack is iconic, we love going to Madison Square Park location
