New York - Summary

Wow, we definitely had eaten our way in New York City by the end of our trip! Even though we only had a couple days--mixing work with pleasure--we truly maximized our time in New York.

Intro: Eating Our Way in the Big Apple
Roosevelt Hotel
Day 1: Doughnut Plant, Cafe Habana, Peter Luger, Momofuku
Day 2: Shake Shack, 9/11 Memorial, Chelsea Market, The High Line, Babbo
Element by Westin Times Square
Day 3: Ippudo
Day 4: Shake Shack, Wafels & Dinges, Eataly
Day 5: Kyotofu

Some of the highlights from our trip were:
  • Cereal milk soft serve at Momofuku Milk Bar
  • Peter Luger steak
  • Ippudo ramen
  • Momofuku's spicy rice cake entree

Here is the list of other restaurants/food places that were on our list but we couldn't fit into our schedule, and hope to try next time:
  • Chicken rice from Halal cart on 53rd and 6th
  • Clinton St. Baking company
  • Macaroon from Laduree
  • Grimaldi's Pizza
  • Cookies from Levain
  • Sushi Yasuda
  • Pommes Frites

And in conclusion, here are some other tips/recommendations:
  • Make reservations in advance where possible for places like Peter Luger, for example.
  • If you go to Shake Shack, beware of the crazy squirrels at Madison Square Park :p 
  • I would not repeat any restaurant or food place twice, but instead try another option. For example, I went to Shake Shack twice, but looking back, I should have only gone once and visited another place since we only had a limited number of meal times!
  • Must try the cereal milk soft serve with cereal crunch at Momofuku Milk Bar!
