NYC, you have our heart. The food, the fashion, the bright lights and electric magnetism that always leaves us wanting more. But whether you’re a seasoned New Yorker or first time visitor, the Big Apple can be overwhelming... and so can the scores of “must do” lists on rotation. So we’ve done the “hard work”, and got the inside scoop from the locals, to bring you the best of the best unmissable New York moments.
EAT Endamame dumplings at Buddakan; Pizza from Arturros in the Village or Roberta’s in Bushwick; Burgers from Montmartre; Lobster Rolls from Dinosaur BBQ; bagels from Murray’s in the village or Bagel Smith in Brooklyn; the trade marked “cronut” from Dominique Ansel Bakery; Mexican & Margaritas at Barrio Chino; anything and everything from Eataly and cocktails and oysters at the Bakehouse West Village.
PLAY Start with sunset cocktails on a roof top bar - The Standard, The Ace, The Dream & Mondrian are our current faves. See a band at the High Line Ballroom. Dance the night away at The Standard’s Boom Boom Room and finish off with some Jazz and a night cap at the Village Vanguard.
EXPERIENCE Walk the Brooklyn Bridge at sunset; get your culture fix at the MOMA; stroll along the High Line from Meatpacking to Chelsea; shop up a storm on Bleeker Street in SOHO; grab a city bike and cycle up through Harlem and enjoy classic New York with afternoon tea at The Plaza Hotel.
