Best Dining Spots In New York

Famous for the hot dog, the pretzel and of course the cupcake, New York has in the past been better known for its junk food than for posh cuisine. However, despite the city’s nickname being the BIG Apple, if you’re heading on holiday to New York, you’d been wrong to expect quantity over quality as New York is a major player on the food scene. Even one of the most gimmicky-sounding foods to have recently come out of the city; the Cronut, took two months and more than 10 recipes to invent by Chef Dominique Ansel - and the entire making process takes three days! And despite the treat first hitting the headlines in May, there are still queues of customers waiting their turn to taste the much-lamented pastry treat each morning.

For those with more exotic tastes, the dining options on a New York city break are endless. With a thriving Italian, Korean, Chinese, Central and South American population, all of the major nationalities of the world are represented in New York and it’s worth heading to K-Town, China Town and Little Italy in Manhattan to find the best, most authentic dishes and a great atmosphere to accompany them. Alternatively head to SOHO where you’ll find everything from sushi bars to Caribbean and Dutch restaurants, as well as places serving American staples such as gourmet burgers and crab cakes.

 Sushi restaurants are really popular with both locals and tourists in New York


What’s more, just this week Michelin handed out a record number of its coveted stars to restaurants in New York City, where reviewers said diverse cuisine, excellent food and service cemented the city's reputation as a premier culinary destination. In the ninth edition of its New York restaurant guide, Michelin awarded 67 restaurants stars, one more than the previous edition. One of the restaurants new to the list was Jungsik, which is named after its head chef, Jungsik Yim. It was awarded two stars and is the first Korean restaurant in the world to earn two Michelin stars, their delicious and artistic looking plum desert is pictured above. Michael Ellis, international director of the Michelin Guides, said: "It shows New York continues to be one of the most exciting and dynamic destinations in the world." With such an explosion of fantastic food, there's never been a better time to take a short break to New York.
