There are literally thousands of cool and iconic places to eat in New York!
We visited NYC last October for just three nights before embarking on a Bahamas cruise.
Here are a few of our eating highlights!
Kat’s Deli is located in lower East Side and was the venue for “that scene” in When Harry Met Sally. It has also been used in lots of other films and TV programmes.
It has been a popular spot with tourists and locals alike since its founding in 1888 who stop by for its pastrami on rye.
Inside it was packed and had a really buzzy atmosphere. We tucked into hot dogs, Matzo Ball Soup, Chicken Noodle Soup and of course the Pastrami Hot Sandwich which was divine!
To eat at the Blue Box cafe which is located at the iconic Tiffany’s store on 5th Avenue, you need to reserve ahead using the Resy app. Booking opens at 2pm UK time (9am in New York) 30 days before so you do need to be organised.
With views onto Central Park you can order from either the Breakfast, Lunch or Afternoon Tea menu. Every person in your party needs to order a dish, and there isn’t a children’s menu, so it isn’t really the best place to eat with small children or fussy eaters.
The food was pretty average but it was a fun place to go!
Ellen’s is home to the singing wait staff! It is located close to Times Square and we were there on our first morning for breakfast. It was 7.30am and we still had to queue (but not for long!).
Ellen’s is a 50s inspired diner and the staff are all incredibly talented singers, all waiting for their big break on Broadway. Whilst we were there we heard knock out tunes from Frozen and Grease all performed whilst handing out food or ringing up on the till. It was cool!
As you can see it was close to Halloween when we visited so they were having a party!
To eat had brunch which was very yummy omelettes, pancakes and bagels.
Have you eaten somewhere really cool and iconic in New York? Would love to hear all about it for our next visit!
