We had so much fun visiting colleges in NYC. There are so many to see and all surrounded by great food. New York is a mecca for foodies – I think you could eat out every day of the year and still not have hit all of the great food spots. And don’t forget the other boroughs! Brooklyn and Queens are also known for amazing food!
My daughter found the following gem on Snapchat.
1. Pommes Frites
Located in Greenwich village, this little Belgian restaurant serves the most amazing french fries. You can order your fries plain or add one (or more) of over 20 different unique sauces. We got poutine (yes, you are looking at cheese curds and gravy), blue cheese, and mushroom sauces! YES! Yum!
2. Sam’s Fried Ice Cream
Well, we thought that after having french fries for lunch, we might as well finish off the meal with some fried ice cream. Seems natural, right?
Yes! So good!!
3. La Sirene
I know there are a plethora of French restaurants in NYC but this is my all time favorite. I keep going back every time I visit NYC. It is located on Broome Street in SoHo; adorable, great ambience, and the food , well, is French. When I find house-made pate de campange on a menu, I’m all set. Below is a salad of beets with brie, and of course, my house-made pate de campagne.
4. Community Food and Juice
On Broadway and 114th Street, this hip neighborhood restaurant boasts an American-eclectic menu that features seasonal, local, and organic food. The beef is grass-fed, antibiotic free, poultry is free range, baking flour and sugar are organic, and their coffee is organic and fair trade. The building is green from the ground up, from the flooring, to the bathrooms, lighting, and tables which are custom made from reclaimed wood. After saying all that you want to know how the food is – right? Well, it’s GREAT! Wonderful menu with items to please any palate. I had : a bottle of GuS’s Natural Cola and “Bowl O’Beets” with local heirloom beets, orange balsamic reduction, whipped goat cheese, topped with toasted pistachios – all for $15 !!! Now that’s a WOW!
