I decided to head to New York for the New Year and was not near a computer to constantly update everything I ate and saw but had my camera on hand. Now its time to play catch up.
(By the way this is my first attempt making an online collage ( how sad I feel so behind the times) but I did it!)
I typically don’t visit New York during the holiday time but wanted to spend the New Year with my girlfriends. I normally try to avoid tourists at all cost (no offense if you’re one of them). It really just makes New York an unpleasant experience, at least for me that is. I recommend going during the slower months, so you can really take in the city for what it really is. I also want to give the places that I did not care for the benefit of the doubt and blame it on excessive tourists for the awful experience. Ok “awful” is a bit extreme, but you get the point.
Haru- overpriced sushi – stick to your local joint
Limelight Marketplace – love love love
The Standard Grill – warm atmosphere
The Oak Room -uptight and stuffy
The Plaza Food Hall – avoid if you hate touristy places
Mercat – excellent food styling but lacked flavor on dishes
Stantion Social – New Year’s Dinner – Good Times
Macondo – Yummy New Year’s Day Brunch
Elmo – trendy yet lacked quality in the food
Eataly – overrated, but New Yorkers love it
123 Burger $1 Burgers, $2 Shots, $3 Beers can’t be that!
The Soup Man – Seafood Gumbo, can you say yummy?
I plan on doing a follow up post on my sweet guilty pleasures
I realize I listed all the places I went to with a little comment but since I put in all this effort to take an overabundance of pictures so I should still write about them. I probably will only pick a few of the favorites and of course talk about all the cupcakes I had. Stay tuned…
