I’m surprised by how many messages I got asking for food requests from New York citizens and foreigners alike – I’m sorry I can’t reply to everyone individually but hopefully this blog post helps!

Although we were only in New York for 5 days and there were many places we didnโ€™t make it to I think we still probably managed to eat what the average couple would’ve got through in a month ๐Ÿ˜› So I’ll do my best to list some of my favourites including a few absolute must-visits if you’re only there for a few days!
