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 didn’t make it to I think we still probably managed to eat what the average couple would’ve got through in a month 😛 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!

As absolutely huge Hotel Chocolat fans we couldn’t have been much more excited when we found out they were based in St Lucia. We couldn’t wait to eat at their restaurant – Boucan – we’d even considered staying at their hotel but we’d fallen in love with the beautiful Sugar Beach resort.

Sometimes (let’s be honest – pretty much every time) I go on brunch dates with friends, I feel like the greedy one – the one who wants to order several plates of food while everyone’s stuffed after one. There’s nothing worse than going for tapas with picky eaters with small appetites, so when I arranged this particular brunch date, I jumped at the opportunity to go to Andina. I’d been to Opso with this friend before, and we’d ordered an absolute feast between us – like me, she’s up for trying pretty much anything (except offal; we both agreed that’s firmly off the table!) and she can eat.. a lot!

Boondocks is an authentic American Diner serving up the ultimate home cooking-style comfort food just a few minutes away from Old Street station – a larger version of its sister restaurant Stax Diner, which I’ve walked past many a time in the beautiful Kingly Court.
