Our recent relocation to New York has lended us the opportunity to dive into the restaurant scene of one of the greatest foodie cities in the world. Home to the 2017 World’s Best Restaurant, Eleven Madison Park, and many other iconic food institutions, there is no shortage of great places to eat. We have tried out local New Yorker established spots along with international household names who have just one location in the U.S.: New York. 

There is just one rule while eating out: thou shalt not repeat restaurants. No matter how much of a foodgasm you might have had, we try at least two new places daily. With the numerous food establishments, festivals and markets that exist in the Big Apple, it seems a tremendous feat to even attempt such a task. We could not try out all New York has to offer in a lifetime anyway!

Thus, this list is in no way complete, but part of our mission to try and get a taste of NY’s food world by visiting as many diverse varieties as possible this summer. Not everything we shared on our Instagram Story has been featured, as this has been a trial and error process.  With the help of some cool foodie friends like Chef Sumaiya Bangee (formerly of Eleven Madison Park), we were able to just scratch the surface, moreso in our local neighborhood Williamsburg, of the happenings in New York’s food scene.
