I only just returned home but I’m already plotting my way back.
There’s nothing like being in a place that you love and finding your way around it. It really doesn’t matter what you do, you are there and that’s all that seems to matter. As I mentioned here, Andrew and I departed over the holidays with another couple and fled to New York City for New Years Eve. I find that every time I’m in New York, I try to focus on doing a couple of things instead of trying to do it ALL because I also like to factor in a little leisure time and some flat out just people watching. I have a running list of things to do New York that now appears to be growing with each visit. This trip was certainly all about the food and drinks. Taking recommendations from my well traveled friends, we hit the town and I thought I would share my three favourite stops we made.
1.The Fat Radish
Lower East Side
This place came to me from a friend that I would never doubt when providing a good restaurant recommendation. She knows where it’s at. This place has everything I look for in a good place to dine. I liked it even before I sat down with their adorable decor and the curiously curated charmings scattered about. We went for lunch and I had the most amazing avocado and egg sandwich. I was able to try a number of different items as we all shared, and there was nothing I didn’t like. We topped it all off with these delicious little doughnuts.
2. Comedy Cellar
p.s. This picture is from The Fat Black Pussycat where you are entitled to some drinks deals with your ticket to the comedy cellar! We took advantage of those deals.
What is better than laughing? In the heart of Greenwhich is this amazing basement which features some unreal comedians. So, that’s a pretty bold statement considering I have only been once but again, as a recommendation from a number of friends, this place never seems to disappoint. Tip – make reservations, you wouldn’t want to be turned away. The line up was around the corner!
Online shopping has given us access to designers and retailers like never before and has kinda taken a little bit and I mean only a little bit of the exciting feeling of shopping in the states however in NYC (and in many other places around the world!) there is this amazing store that sells great basic, well made pieces for awesome prices. That doesn’t seem to happen very much anymore. There has also been rumours circulating that they could potentially be making their way to Toronto?
Where are you favourite spots when visiting NYC? I will add them to my list!
