I Can Has NYC??

Yes, that’s right, I intend to eat at least 8 meals a day while in NYC.

Myself and Niall are heading off to New York City on Monday afternoon to check out the CMJ music marathon and, of course, to eat and shop and hang out in one of the coolest cities in the world.

I am beside myself with excitement as New York is my favourite place of ALL TIME.  When I was younger, my ambition was to be a taxi driver in New York.  The fact that I still can’t drive has held me back in achieving this goal but there’s still time…

Do you have any suggestions of the food variety?  Please do tell all!

Expect many photos from New York in the next week and a half.  I plan to eat A LOT.

  1. i had an amazing birthday meal in Pastis in the meat-packing district.

    uber trendy but really good grub and nice beer/wine list I seem to remember. enjoy it…

  2. Go to Chat N’ Chew off Union Square and ask for the Coca Cola Fudge Cake. I dream about this cake at least twice a week. I would book a flight over especially for it or have it helicoptered over to my house it’s THAT GOOD!


  3. lucky lucky you! since I haven’t been in 20 years, I personally don’t although two of my favorite west coast bloggers recently reported on some good eats out that way:



  4. this place is pretty cool for some interesting tapas and wine. in fact their olive oils were so good, i could have drunk them from the bottle!

  5. Gray’s Papaya – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gray%27s_Papaya
    If you want to get those 8 meals per day in, they better be small! :D

    John’s pizza – supposed to be the best in NYC http://www.johnspizzerianyc.com/index2.htm Something about coal fired ovens?! In an old church, worth a visit if even to have a look. It’s on this tour : http://www.scottspizzatours.com

    Was disappointed with any breakfast which was egg-based. They just don’t have nice eggs!

    Check out the Muppet Whatnot workshop in FAO Schwarz, I stalked one of the muppeteers around the shop for about half an hour. Raging I didn’t get one, but the choice was overwhelming!
