Hey Guys! Everyone has been asking me for a blog on my favourite places to eat & things to do in New York.. So here you go!!
As I'm sure you all know there are thousands of amazing restaurants in New York, and the food is amazing. Here is a list of some of the places I'll often return to when in the city :)
Bluestone Lane has amazing smashed avocado on eggs and amazing Australian style coffee too. I highly recommend trying out any of their cafe's if you're nearby and want a delicious breakfast and even better coffee. I think we ordered smashed avo and a baked eggs - both were so good!
Catch - 20 W 39th Street, New York
Hands down my favourite place to eat in New York and by far the best food I've ever eaten overseas. If you like Japanese style raw fish and sashimi style food, this place is for you. I would compare Catch to something like Nobu, however, a younger crowd and better food. I would say this is a little more on the expensive side, however, if you're looking to treat yourself.. Well worth it. The atmosphere is amazing here, such a cool restaurant. They also have a restaurant in LA too.. Which is just as amazing. Do yourself a favour and go here!! I ordered the salmon sashimi, the tuna sushi hand roll (best I've ever eaten), the chicken bao buns and the waygu tacos. BOOM. #allforme
Laboratorio - 329 W 51st Street, New York
BEST ITALIAN! We actually discovered this place by accident.. Funnily enough, Mitch and I wanted to try their sister restaurant down the road! We walked in to the sister restaurant and it was booked out. The staff suggested we walk down the road and eat at their sister restaurant Laboratorio, which shared the same menu, was less busy and had a table free for us right away. So we walked on down, and let me tell you.. The service, food and atmosphere is better than their main restaurant down the road (we ended up trying it the second time we came back). Please, try the Lasagne here... Best EVER!! Mitch and I are obsessed, we typically go here 2-3 times when we're in town haha.
Santina - 820 Washington Street, New York
A new style Mediterranean/Greek style restaurant which is amazing. Located close to Chelsea, this is a restaurant you must try. My sister says the chickpea pancakes are incredible - so you know they're good!
Shake Shack - Multiple Venues in NY
If you're looking for a burger and fries, this is the place to go. This place is well priced and well worth the wait (there's typically a large line up at each of their restaurants). However, if you go here.... you MUST get a shake. Don't be a party pooper and order a soft drink, it just isn't the same haha!!
I hope you love these recommendations and if you're ever in New York, make sure you try some of them.. I promise you, I'm all about good food!!
Love, Leah x
