I'm from Holland but have visited New York and Connecticut for at least 10 week(end)s in the past 10 years, getting to know the city pretty well. As a CHOW member, finding good places to eat is usually at the top of the to do list :)
I've visited places in the past ranging from Nobu to Gray's Papaya, from Sakagura (izakaya) to Katz Deli and from Doyers in Chinatown to the little roadside restaurants in the Village.
Last time I visited (May 2009) there was still a steamed pork bun / food from trucks / cupcake / bahn mi / bubble tea hype in the city.... and I'm curious to know what's happening at the moment. I heard maccarons are popular now and heard about the new Battali venture Eataly is supposed to be worth to visit.
So I'm hoping you could give me some tips on where / what to eat? I'm looking for unique or new places (since 2009) worth to visit. I'm thinking of the Milk Bar, Eataly, ABC Kitchen, Minetta Tavern.
Besides that I'm looking for the best places for some specific foods:
- xiao long bao (shanghai dumplings with broth inside)
- pork bons
- shredded pork
- ice-cream (tried Grom and Laboratorio del Gelato)
- black cod in miso
- bhan mi
- vietnamese crepes
Thanks a lot for any tips!
