  1. I’m so thankful that I found your blog!
    My bf and I will be in NYC mid-October for our honeymoon and we really wanted to try some restaurants that we don’t have here in NB, Canada. So Thank you! We’ve found 3 places that we realllly need to try so again: Thanks for your awesome and useful blog, for travelers like us! 🙂

    1. Hi Jess!

      Glad you like my blog and what I write about here. This is only a small list of places I have been to. Let me know what three places you want to try. I am also a big reviewer on Yelp and can suggest many more places. Let me know what you two like as far as food and drinks.

  2. Hey, my girlfriend and I are going to be in NYC in April and we were looking for restaurants to go to so this page will definitely be helpful. Any restaurants you highly recommend out of this list?

    1. Hey Fernando!

      Thanks for dropping by! I constantly update this list and just added a few more. What kind of food and cocktails are you into? Pasta, meat, etc. Where will you be staying in the city. Let me know and I’ll offer some suggestions. Send me an email through my contact form.

Feel free to comment! We all have opinions!

This blog is just a regular guy's view of life, food, cocktails, fitness, and fun.
