It’s been over a year (!!!) since I did one of these mini recaps so wanted to share some recent spots I’ve loved around NYC! As a reminder, I include all my favorite spots in my highlights on IG as well on my travel guides page.
Soho Diner: This retro-inspired diner inside the Soho Grand Hotel (another new favorite to go grab late night drinks at) is open 24 hours, making it ideal to stop in whenever you want! The menu is classic American, huge portions and a fun vibe for a group.
Uncle Boons: After having this hot spot on my list for so long, my friends and I finally dealt with the long wait for a table this past Saturday. We arrived right when they opened at 5:30 pm (they only take very limited reservations) and we were able to be seated a little before 9 pm so definitely get there as early as you can! The wait is worth it though for some of the best Thai food you’ll ever have!
Rosecrans: A flower and coffee shop combined? My dream! This adorable Greenwich Village spot is perfect to catch up with a girlfriend over a coffee and croissant while being surrounded by blooms.
Lucien: Another classic NYC spot that was on my list for so long was Lucien, a tiny French spot in the East Village. My girlfriends and I shared steak, fries, mussels and a salad and lots of cocktails and loved the vibe of this cozy spot. Felt like I was back in Paris!
Il Fiorista: While I still haven’t been here for a full meal, I recently went to two work events at this gorgeous new Nomad spot and the bites and drinks I had were AMAZING. The space is bright and filled with flowers and perfect for any upcoming spring brunch. They also have fun floral and cocktail classes I would love to go back and try!
