New York

  • Momofuku

    David Chang's big five will make love to every tastebud you possess. Ssam for meat. Milk Bar for sweet. Ma Peche dim sum. Ko for fancy. Noodle Bar... well, you can guess.

  • Shopsin's

    A tiny, tucked away, diner/restaurant created by an eccentric chef. Follow their rules. But also put both the hot sauce and syrup on your mac and cheese pancakes.

  • Bowery Ballroom

    Hard to find the right adjective for this place. Bigsmall. Intimassive. Freshistoric. A big fat slice of the Manhattan vibe and like no other music venue.

  • Smorgasburg

    A giant flea market with delicious food that you can eat on the spot, and treats to save for later. Be sure to wear loose-fitting pants.

  • Rough Trade

    An extension of the original London mainstays. Vinyl, cd's, books or magazines - this record shop has it all including a 250 capacity venue in the back of the house.

  • The Metropolitan Museum of Art

    Art lover or avoider, the MET has something for you. And if it doesn't, you weren’t looking hard enough and need to go back.

  • Central Park

    Famous for a reason, this escape from the madness is only ever a train ride away. Take in a show, see Shakespeare in the Park, touch the grass and sit under a tree.

  • Angel's Share

    Secreted behind a Japanese street food restaurant is a cocktail bar. Enter with an open mind. Drink gratefully from whatever they choose to give you.

  • Dog Run in Tompkin’s Square Park

    Get a coffee and wander up there. We hang and name the dogs. Also, outdoor ping pong, but you have to bring your own paddle.

  • Four Horsemen

    James Murphy’s newish restaurant endeavor highlighting biodynamic wines and small plates. The beef tartare is the best thing that I have eaten recently and tastes like an expensive, raw In n Out cheeseburger.
