MEATPACKING.

Toro.

A tapas restaurant located in meatpacking, just by Pier 57. You can enjoy some jamon and a rioja in their divine rustic atmosphere.  It’s the perfect place to have dinner after a long shopping day, remember they don’t take reservations so come in time.

The Standard Grill.

Its that chic New York Meatpacking feeling. The hotel does not just have the chicest restaurant in the meatpacking district but also the best burger. They have a terrace and a garden where you can hang after your dinner with a delish penny drop, my favorite dink made of ginger and vodka.

Spice Market.

The Asian restaurant in New York. They serve the best papadums and the most delish wok. If you like spicey and tasty, spice market is the one Asian lounge your should pass by.

 SOHO

La Colombe.

The best shopping break to hit when you need to reload. Located in the heart of SoHo with their strong coffee and perfect bench in the sun.

 

Navy Bar.

Chicest seafood and vegetables restaurant located in SoHo. If ever in the mood for some fresh seafood when your on your shopping spree, pass by Navy Bar.

Eataly.

Its the major food market located in Nomad. It has a pizza/pasta area, market where you can enjoy charcuteries, fish, meat or vegetables.

You can drop by to enjoy a glass of wine while you wait for your table and look at the market. All menues inside the market are super delish, perfect for lunch just as dinner.

They serve coffee and inside the coffee shop they have a little book shoop.

Schillers.

Is the urban super cool liquor bistro in East village. Completley love their beetsalad and the delish choco bomb dessert. The staff is super nice and you truely enjoy fresh food in a urban atmosphere. The perfect lunch if your about to cross over to Brooklyn.

Lucien.

A french little bistro located in East village. Delish Moules Marinere with staff speaking french english. Super charming!

WEST VILLAGE.

The Spotted Pig.

Famous for their burgers and one michelin star however if your not in the mood for THE new york burger you can enjoy a salad, fish or sandwiches.

Buvette.

THE french bistro in West village. Its the perfect lunch bistro when you strolling around the west side!

Their salads are amazing. They dont take reservations so come in time or with patience.

MIDTOWN EAST.

Cipriani. 

What to say. The chicest from Italy. Best deco and enhances that major New York feeling inside Gran Central. Can it get any chicer?

Fika.

Its like coming home when you in New York. You have a great “fika”. Big coffee and a cinnamon bun. Sadly I discovered this place way to late on my vacation but I recomend you to pass by one of their cafes when your in New York. They have 3 different locations over Manhattan: Downtown, Midtown and one by Central Park.

 

Hope you will enjoy some of these tips when in New York!

LA ESQUINA

Ikväll åt vi en snabb taquito innan vi promenerade hem i NY solnedgång.
La Esquina ligger i SoHo och serverat en smarrig Margarita och mör pulled pork taquito. Det finns tre delar av restaurangen: cafe, brasserie eller taquerian. Vi satte oss nere i brasseriet för några taquitos och några sippar öl.

We just went for some taqutios before we walked home in the NY evening sun.
La Esquina is a mexican restaurant located in SoHo. It has three different parts: the taqueria, the cafe and the brasserie.
We sat down in the brasserie to enjoy some pulled pork taqutios and some sips of cold bear.
