McSorley’s Old Ale House

With an Irish and English background I naturally feel right at home when visiting this place. McSorley’s dates as far back as the 1800’s with an enormous amount of ancient American artifacts decorating the walls. Depending on what day of the week you come here space can be limited which means sometimes sharing a table with…

By Chloe

From a carnivore’s perspective I have always thought the concept of veganism is all a marketing hype until I walked past by CHLOE on Bleecker St. I wanted to see what all this vegan fuss was all about. The menu included a range of burgers,  desserts, and cold-pressed juices—all of which are reasonably priced, all-natural,…

The Donut Pub

Would you believe me if I told you there is a pub that only serves donuts and is open 24 hours in New York City, Manhatten? The Donut Pub has been going strong since 1964 at 14th St. and 7th Ave. The most you will pay for a donut here is $2.75 and that’s for the…

Pies N thighs

As a Brit when the thought of pies comes to mind I instantly think of a pork pie or something meaty! This place instantly changed that channel of thought. Its January in New York City and it is minus 6 degrees outside. Does the warm thought of fried chicken and waffles force me out that…

The Spotted Pig

I finally made it after a year of living here. I came here to experience all the hyper over the chargrilled burger with Roquefort cheese. This place is always at full capacity no matter what time you come here at the weekend so I decided to come here on my day off. There isn’t an inch…

Queens Comfort

Don’t be put off by the large amount of random creepy toys and old school comics from the past. Prepare to be overwhelmed by how many food choices are available on the menu. This fun cozy spot with a retro vibe is a cash only and BYOB kinda place. If you are a burger lover…

The best of New York’s Financial District

Home to some of the tallest buildings in the world, the financial district is located at the southernmost tip of Manhatten. Every year is attracts hordes of tourists to enjoy views of New York Harbor and catch ferries to Staten Island or the Statue of Liberty. The streets are considerably more narrow and twisting in…

New York Pizza joint’s you must try

Whether you are stumbling out of a bar on the lower East Side craving that dollar slice pizza or after great pizza below are a few of my favourite places. ROBERTA’S Where: 261 Moore St, Brooklyn, NY 11206 Roberta’s opened its doors back in 2009 in a cinder block garage, and its exterior does nothing to…

The best ice cream and milkshake parlours in NYC

Biggest advice.. don’t come to New York if you are on a diet. You will find that the sheer number of ice cream shops seem to come and go in the city. The amount of walking you have to do to get from A to B will work off that ice cream you just consumed. Below…

Harlem

Famous for its talented gospel choirs, soul food joints and performance venue Apollo Theatre. Harlem remains one of New York’s most diverse neighbourhoods with its long history of African-American culture.
