My Favorite In New York: Restaurants

October 25, 2016

I’ve lived in the NYC area my entire life and have been lucky enough to enjoy countless meals at the city’s millions of restaurants. My favorites tend to be casual, simple, and homey. Enjoy!

Bacchus Bistro, Brooklyn


This hidden gem french restaurant in Boerum Hill has the prettiest back garden and a delicious menu. The homemade goat cheese gnocchi is INSANE.

Rubirosa, Little Italy


Getting a table can be tough at this tiny Little Italy spot, but the tie dye pizza (with a mixture of marinara, vodka, and pesto sauces) is worth the wait.

Rucola, Brooklyn


The seasonal menu and the romantic vibe has made this my go-to neighborhood spot. My favorite dishes are the fresh salads and homemade pastas. The brunch is also amazing.

Chuko Ramen, Brooklyn


This Prospect Heights ramen place is the perfect cure for a cold and blustery day. Give me some pork buns, a bowl of noodles, and a cold beer any day.

The Coffee Shop, Union Square


This was my go-to place when I lived in the East Village, and it still holds a place in my hungry heart. It’s open almost 24 hours and features simple yet crowd pleasing dishes with a casual vibe.
