Food Guide // New York City

The Butcher’s Daugther (19 Kenmare St & 581 Hudson St)

I love the name as they only serve vegetarian and vegan dishes 😉 I recommend getting there early in the morning since it can get crowded. I  love everything on the menu but the juices and smoothies are extra delicious. Also the food and the place itself is an dream for all people who instagram – so basically everyone.

The Egg Shop (151 Elizabeth St)

The Egg Shop opened its doors in 2014 in the Soho neighborhood and does various dishes all egg related – who would have thought, huh? 😉 Be aware that this location is rather small and cozy, however, they recently expanded and you now can find them in Williamsburg, Brooklyn too. Recommendation: eggs benedict

Grey Dog Café (244 Mulberry St & 49 Carmine St & 242 W 16th St)

Relaxed vibes and great breakfast. Different to other restaurants or cafés you have to pay  for your food first and then get a seat on a table to enjoy it. Their breakfast may look ordinary but it’s very good. Recommendation: the pancakes and their salads.

Jack’s Wife Freda (50 Carmine St & 224 Lafayette St)

The american-mediterranean restaurant is own by Dean and Maya, husband and wife. The name of the restaurant, which is open 7 days a week,  reffers to Dean’s grandparents Jack and Freda. There is almost no time where you don’t have to wait in line to get a table – they are very busy. Surprisingly, the food was served not long after we placed our order. The burger is yummy and oh my god, the fries are a dream! Recommendation: everything! – expect to leave with a food baby and wear comfy clothes 😉

Shake Shack (11 Madison Eve & E.23rd St)

In’n’Out is definitely still my favorite burger spot to go but when in New York it’s Shake Shack. I love their ShackBurger and the fries are good to.

Le Pain Quotidien (100 Grand St + so many more)

You can never go wrong with Le Pain! I have been to so many of them all over the world and I loved it. It’s healthy, it’s delicious and they know how to bake real bread (that’s the only thing I miss when I’m in america). But don’t only try their breakfast, go there for lunch too – you do not want to miss out on that!

Café Gitane (242 Mott St)

Thank god their food is better than their website 😉 This café is perfect for an afternoon break. Their waffles are yummy! Try to get a table outside and take a picture at the “love wall” afterwards.

Tacombi (267 Elizabeth St & 255 Bleecker St)

There’s an actual van inside the restauran when you go to the one in Nolita on Elizabeth St.! It’s rustic, cute and makes you feel like you’re somewhere in South America. We got the guacamole and chips first and then added every taco on the menu (which is rather small).

Juice Generation (69 Prince St)

The yummiest juices are to be find at the Juice Generation. I don’t think they do small sized cups but who would want that anyway 😉 Everything is made of fresh ingredients and that’s exactly how the Juice tastes – fresh.

Pizzetteria Brunetti (626 Hudson St)

People are going to tell you to get your pizza at Joe’s, but if you are in for more of a get together and chatting over dinner kinda thing you would want to go to Brunetti. The pizza dough there is super thin and crispy, just how I like it.

Le Bain at the Standard (848 Washington St)

If you are lucky, you get a spot near the glass fence, where you can enjoy an incredible view over the city and the Hudson River. There’s fake grass on the floor which makes it feel like you’re in some park on the coulds. Recommendation: Go see the restroom 😉

The Standard RooftopLe Bain

Rooftop at the Jane Hotel (113 Jane St)

In comparison to the one at Le Bain the rooftop at the Jane Hotel is more cozy and a place where you hang out with your friends having some deep and meaningful talks. It’s small but feels homey. Recommendation: Brooklyn Lager (beer)

Sugar Factory (46 Gansevoort St))

What a crazy place! There’s huge cocktails with candy inside – CANDY! How awesome is that?! There were quite some people celebrating their birthdays so I guess if it happens to be yours, you should definitely check it out.
