Long time lurker but first-time poster here. I moved from Vancouver to North New Jersey a while ago for work and have been going to NYC pretty much every weekend to eat. I've covered a huge variety of places already (e.g. Halal guys, Eleven Madison Park, Ippudo, Katz, Bohemian, Momofuku, Tia Pol, Shake Shack, Spotted Pig) but I'm getting pretty tired of eating by myself most of the time. I want to find some like-minded eating buddies but problems are: 1) it's pretty inconvenient for me to get to NYC so I can only go on weekends and not stay too late and 2) I'm underage and have never been to school or anything here so I don't have a base of friends interested in food here to build off of and I can't attend most food events like Meatopia or the Food and Wine festival.
Any suggestions of ways to meet people (maybe clubs or organzations?) Thanks for the help!
