next stop || NEW YORK CITY

Last minute work trip has me heading to the East Coast, and well the husband decided that we should make a weekend out of it in New York. Just like London, where in the world do you start and end – so many places, so little time. Here is my rushed together list so far:

  • wd-50 – it’s been on the to eat list forever
  • Toby’s Estate – love this Aussie coffee spot & the one in the Flatiron looks adorable
  • Atera – highly recommended fancy schmancy dinner $$$$$
  • Balthazar – it’s an institution – and I love seafood towers
  • Mission Chinese – it’s under renovation – but they are operating a pop-up
  • Perla – Italian old-school meat focused read this review
  • Little Prince – european feel – charming
  • Here is the Chowzter list for Manhattan fast feasts
  • Need some good cocktail bar / lounge recommendations? Anyone?

    Nice list! For your delicious supplies to take home, visit Eataly on 5th (I think it is somewhere near 34th). I just got back from 9 days NYC yesterday, had a great time.
    Enjoy, lots of fun!

    For cocktails: head to Top of the Standard (better known as Boom Boom Room) for impeccable view and old school lux. Or check out the “secret” entrance down to Little Branch’s jazz vibey basement. For outdoors with a view: the terrace at Wythe Hotel or Jimmy at James Hotel. Enjoy your weekend!

    It’s a shame you only have the weekend, if you had more time I would definitely recommend doing a tour of Brooklyn! Coney Island, Grimaldi’s pizzeria and all… (if you haven’t already)

        I’d love to be as close to NYC as you, as a fellow Australian, I can’t stress enough how this isolation makes for intense wanderlust! I’m glad I stumbled upon your blog, it is great :)

        I do feel fortunate to be Chicago based – the world is a whole lot more accessible on a whim.

    Ever thought of walking on Brooklyn Bridge? It’s a great spot, and is pretty historic. Have a wonderful time, our girls live and work in NYC, we can never get enough.
