Return to NY Part 2

June 13, 2012 § Leave a comment

When I wasn’t reveling in meat in NY (see post below), I was meeting up with all my friends that I left in the city. Mostly we did this in restaurants so I had more meals per day than should be legal. The food in New York is just too good to pass up so I pressed on. Here are some highlights:

Tacombi is a taco shack in the heart of SoHo that serves up awesome sangria and the delicious fried fish tacos. Perfect for a girls night.

Yummy, crispy fried fish tacos. Order more than you think you want

Eataly is an absolute must-see if you are visiting. Part-market, part- restaurants, part-coffee shop, part-rooftop beer garden… the list goes on–if it is Italian food, it will be here. The crowd is a nice mix of New Yorkers and visitors so the vibe is really nice.

The panini was on soft, fresh bread with tomatoes that were bursting and mozzarella that I watched them make in the room next door.

Friend of a Farmer has a cozy, countryside feel and is in gorgeous, quiet Gramercy area. You can literally smell the bread as it bakes.

From top: Can I Move In?; Mac & Cheese; Taylor’s Tasty Toast; Farmer’s Special

Momofuku Ssam Bar is possibly my favorite Momofuku restaurant because the menu is diverse enough but not overwhelming and the atmosphere is lively and fun while still getting really high quality food. Plus it is right across the street from their dessert spot, Milk Bar.

From top: Pork Buns (order more than you think you want, these things are legendary. I dream about them.); Veal Sweetbreads; Crack Pie (people actually form addictions, it is chewy and sweet and dense and awesome); Cereal Milk Ice Cream w/ Corn Flakes Crunch;

All in all, I had a fabulous weekend in New York, and this is just a small glimpse of what the city has to offer. If you are planning a visit and looking for recommendations, please feel free to shoot me an email @yankeeinnashville@gmail.com and I can send you over a more tailored list based on location, price, cuisine type etc.
