New York :: Where to eat, drink and explore


New York stole my heart.

BJ and I could wander the streets aimlessly all day erry damn day.

If you’re a food lover like us, I’d highly suggest wandering the streets of Greenwich Village, Meatpacking District, Chelsea, Soho, Nolita & Lower East Side. I promise you’ll find some epic places. But just in case, here’s some specific areas I’d suggest walking around to find some craaaazzy delicious places:

+ Around and down West 8th street in Greenwich Village you’ll find plenty of yummy options.

+ Walk up Mulberry Street from Hester to Prince street for great places to eat, drink and dine.

+ As well as Broome St, Kenmare St and Spring St. This area is GOLD.

Below are our most memorable places to eat & drink by neighbourhood..



+ Vanessa’s Dumplings :: Cheap, quick and delicious dumplings.

+ Joe’s Shanghai Dumplings :: Very popular. Be willing to wait, it’s worth it. It’s nothing fancy and you get seated with other groups. BUT the dumplings are the shiz.

+ Wyndaham Rooftop Bar :: We shared many gin and tonics up here with most AMAZING view of Manhattan.


+ Ross and Daughters :: Legit the best bagels. Pick your spread (a huge variety of different cream cheese). You can stop there. OR add some of the FRESH salmon.



+ Seamore’s :: Whhaaaad up! Those fish tacos are the shiz. (pictured above)

+ Lombardi’s Pizza :: They’ve been serving coal-fire thin crust pizza since 1905.

+ La Esquina :: A really cool Mexican restaurant. You need to book a month in advance. 

+ Freemans Restaurant :: This is a New Yorkers fave. We didn’t make it this time, but a friend told me that you HAVE to have the artichoke deep, it is actually ridiculous.

+ Mo il Gelato :: The salted caramel flavour is heaven.

+ Tartinery Bar for drinks.



+ Greenwich Project :: The food is just divine. 

+ Bluestone Lane Collective Cafe :: Smashed avo and Aussie coffee, how can you go wrong? 

+ Niu Noodle :: Get the dumplings & noodle soup.

+ Favela Cubana :: Absolute delicious Cuban food. The vibe and decor is on point. 

+ The Marlton Hotel :: The perfect place to read, write or work, with free wifi and a cosy fireplace. 


+ One Hotel :: After walking through central park, stop in here for a share plate and wine. The decor is BEYOND. 


Off the tourist map but def worth a visit..


+ Brooklyn Flea & Smorgasbord Market :: The market is held every weekend. They feature hundreds of top vendors of furniture, vintage clothing, collectibles and antiques. Plus delicious fresh food. I found these amazing rugs (pictured above) and this stunning camera (pictured above), I wish I could have brought it all home with me!!

+ The Bitter End :: The oldest rock club located in Greenwich Village.

+ Comedy Cellar :: It was that hilarious we had to go a second time before we left. Be sure to book your tickets online in advance as you won’t get a ticket at the door. (Location: 117 MacDougal Street)

+ Tenement Museum :: New York’s Tenement Museum focuses on America’s urban immigrant history. There are several different walking tours you can do, I’d highly recommend booking online ahead as they book out quickly. 

+ Chelsea Market :: Is an enclosed urban food market. The food choices are amazeballs. I’m still dreaming of the tacos. Oh! and make sure to check out the wine bar.

+ Picnic in central park :: Because you can and it’s so damn romantic.

+ The High Line :: Okay so it’s a major tourist attraction, but it’s just so cool I had to mention it.

… New York blew my mind! Without a doubt the concrete jungle where dreams are made of.
