Dinner in New York: Gotham West Market

New York is mostly a forerunner in many categories, this also applies to food. During my time in New York I discovered that they have a lot of these so called markets. Here you find different little vendors which offer a variety of food. The most famous is probably Chelsea Market in the Meatpacking district area. But its always packed with tourists. So, here we have something more delicate for you. The Gotham West Market is located in the Hell’s Kitchen area and offers a delicious list of culinary offerings. It’s a place where young people meet and hang-out in the evening. I can highly recommend Ivan Ramen Slurp soup (Breakfast All Day Ramen and the Shrimp Buns – delicious!) , Ample Hills ice cream (post coming soon on this) and the Blue Bottle coffee (see our experience about this here!).

Sweet Treat in New York: Alice`s Tea Cup

Living in England made me fall for one thing over and over again: scones with jam and clotted cream! It just happens to be a secret addiction and when ever I see a chance to eat this delight somewhere I’ll go for it. However it’s not so easy to find s spot where they serve them right but Alice’s Tea Cup certainly knows how to please me. I already visited this place last year during my New York visit and had to come again this year. When you go there, try the combination of a small tea pot and two scones of your choice (depending on their daily offer) for $ 13 Price $$$$$ // Service ☆☆☆☆☆ // Location ☆☆☆☆☆ // Taste ☆☆☆☆☆ Alice’s Tea Cup 102 West 73rd Street New York, NY 10023 open daily from 8am to 8pm What To Wear to this location

Culture in New York: Roosevelt Island

Roosevelt Island is a narrow island in New York City’s East River and definitely is worth a visit when staying in New York. Luckily the day I was there the weather was amazing, still there were not many people hanging around. It therefore it the ideal get-away place from the city if you are just longing for a close hide-away. You can get there by metro or take the Roosevelt Island Tramway.

Dinner in New York: Rosa Mexicano

I‘m a huge fan of Mexican cuisine and was more than pleased to try this restaurant after a friend recommended it to me. Rosa Mexicano is located just across the street from Lincoln Center and offers the perfect dining place before an evening at the ballet or the MET opera (they also have other locations around New York). The food was absolutely delicious and I can highly recommend the three tacos and a classic quesadilla. Make sure to share these dishes with a friend so you can really explore the diversity of Mexican food.

Lunch in New York: by Chloe.

If there is one thing that is unique about New York, it’s its culinary diversity. I am pretty sure that there is nearly nothing than you cannot find in this city, no matter what cuisine and style it is. By Chloe is a place that offers a healthy alternative to fast food – I would describe it as a hybrid fast food restaurant, since you get your food at the counter but still the atmosphere/interior is nice and you can sit down to eat after you took your order. The menu is heaven for health-freaks, vegans, vegetarians and all kinds of foodies. There are super nice salads (we can recommend the Quinoa Taco Salad!), as well as vegetarian burgers and the complementary sweet potato fries, which cannot be missing either! As in every in-place in New York, you’ll have to be a little patient to find a seat, since the place is usually packed. Ordering the food on the other hand is super fast and there is good service.

Brunch in New York: House of Small Wonder

As soon as you live in New York for a while, you will realize that Brooklyn is like a whole distinct world and you don’t necessarily have to travel to Manhattan all the time if you live there. You”ll have your own micro cosmos, you favorite coffee shop, brunch place, food market and so on… Last weekend we tried the brunch/lunch/dinner cafe “House of Small Wonder” in Williamsburg. They offer the best matcha cappuccino and homemade gluten free bread and granola. Even though the place is really small, we did not wait long for a table and it is definitely one of the coziest spots we found so far!

Coffee in New York: Brooklyn Roasters

Brooklyn Roasters is my favorite coffee shop in the DUMBO area. A perfect Sunday would start with a soy latte and some work for the blog on my laptop. Afterwards, a stroll through the DUMBO area and a walk from Manhattan to Brooklyn Bridge. Afterwards, one can go to Brooklyn Heights for some shopping.

Coffee and more in New York: Butterfield Market

I soon found out that a perfect day in New York City most likely looks like this to me: Firstly, visit the MET and stroll through the impressionism floor (I am a huge fan of Monet, Manet, Sargent, Degas, Renoir, Van Gogh and there are so many more…) and maybe also take a look at the Costume Institute exhibition going on. Afterwards I would totally go for a coffee and frozen yogurt break at the Butterfield Market, one of my favorite food places in New York. The Butterfield Market is basically a fine food store, selling all kinds of delicacies. There is a small bakery, cheese section, fruits and fresh produce and much more! But what I love the most is the open coffee station, where one can fill in one’s own iced coffee with Hawaiian coconut flavored brew and hazelnut americano. I would also recommend to try the frozen yogurt as long as the temperatures allow it, coffee and natural with fresh mango is my favorite combination! Finally, I would go back to the Central Park for a long walk, just …
