Savor Our City Takes A Bite Out Of The Big Apple

Posted By : denise/ 38

Hello Foodie Friends,

Wanted to share my recent visit to NYC…

 

I stayed at the Club Quarters Hotel in Midtown Manhattan . View from the 27th floor, Happy Hour every day at 5pm, Dinner at the hotel’s steak house, Davino’s

On my next day, I took Sidewalk Tours’ Lower East Side Food Tour visiting the ethnic side of town. Highlights of tour:  the potato knish at Yonah Schimmel K’Nishery was the best potato knish I ever had. Even Larry David loves him som Yonah Schimmel…
 
   Russ & Daughter’s, celebrating 105 years in business. The place was packed. We couldn’t even get in,
but our  tour guide went in and came back with a sample of their raspberry ruggalach
 (to be honest, the ruggalach at Saquella Cafe in Royal Palm Place in Downtown Boca is better)…
 
                                      _______________________________________________________________
Katz’s Deli, the best pastrami I have ever had.
This is also the location of ‘Where Harry Met Sally’ was filmed.
                                        ———————————————————————————————-
 Quick stop at Economy Candy Store, for a little nostalgia.
This shop has candy from many generations back. Roman Risotto Balls from Trapizzino
                                            ________________________________________________________
The Pickle Guys – a store fully dedicated to pickles
and everything pickled. Unique
                                     ___________________________________________________________
  Chelsea Market, a foodie’s haven and one that should definitely not be missed on a visit to NYC.( unfortunately I only got a couple pics)
 
Walking the Highline, the above ground pedestrian walkway that goes for several blocks that used to be a working rail way….
 
         Mercado Little Spain – I exited the Highline at 10th St. and stumbled upon this awesome
           market Mercado Little Spain. It was particularly exciting as I have an upcoming trip to Spain.
Pictured is an ice cream drizzled with Olive Oil and a sprinkle of sea salt. Yum!
                                             ________________________________________________________
The Vessel at The Hudson Yard;          A visit to Koreatown at Barn Joo 35         Eataly – This was the venue selected                      & 911 Memorial                               sampling their Bulgogi Hotstone Bowl        by our client ADP for a personal tour &                                                                                                                                                tasting of the market followed by a private                                                                                                                                             hands-on pasta making class

Radio City Music Hall, Broadway                                  The pizza is half arugula and half vodka sauce.
                                                                                 This vodka sauce pizza was the best tasting pizza I ever had!
