Jacob’s Pickles – UWS If you are a big fan of southern comfort food (chicken, biscuits etc.,) this is THE place for you. One of my all-time favorites, I usually describe Jacob’s Pickles as “fancy southern comfort”, and everything tastes amazing. You can get any of the south’s classics, with fried pickles on the side. Oh, and the desserts are amazing. All of the portions are massive so go when you’re really hungry or make plans to take a box home.
Citizens of Chelsea – Chelsea (duh) The ultimate casual brunch spot. Everything from avocado toast to pancakes. The restaurant itself is decorated perfectly and it’s a great spot to get some fire Instagram stories- yah you know you want to.
Taladwat – Hell’s Kitchen I am obsessed with the Thai food from here, my roommate and I went and my life was forever changed. Casual, good food, great prices – what else could you want?
Le Relais De Venise L’Entrecôte – Midtown East Yeah don’t ask me to pronounce it. BUT, if you love steak as much as I do, this is the place to be. Sources say they have “the best steak frites”, and I agree.
Peacefood Cafe – UWS Two words for ya– VE.GAN. Well, one word but you know what I mean. Peacefood’s is a vegan bakery and café, and the food is amazing. The perfect spot.
