4 places to eat in New York like a local

Visiting a big city like New York it’s great fun, but it can also be overwhelming regarding the food choices. There are many places around to eat weather you are at the Times or Union Square. But since a bad meal can ruin your travel experience, we have created for you a list of restaurants and cafes which are sure to leave you satisfied! Here are 4 places to eat in New York like a local:

Start your day with a nice brunch at Saju Bistro in the heart of midtown. Despite the fact that this place is very central, it doesn’t feel touristic at all. If you are a fan of the avocado toast, then you should definitely give it a try here! In case you want to finish your meal with something sweet then go for the profiterole. We promise, you will not regret it.

Another place where I always enjoy having brunch or lunch is the French Roast Brasserie located at the Upper West Side of New York. I like this place, because it brings some French flair, a little piece of Paris to New York. No matter what you eat don’t forget to try their amazing Cappuccino!!

From the French flair we move to some Spanish temperament and some of the best tapas I have ever eaten. If you want to enjoy some refreshing sangria and have a bite then head to Boqueria. You can find all the Spanish favorites from patatas bravas to pimientos de padron and tortilla espanola. Our recommendation? The Escalivada: fire roasted eggplant and red pepper served with yogurt, fresh herbs and flatbread. Finish your meal with their great Churros!

If you find yourself around the Flatiron Building, check the Eataly in Flatiron Plaza. It’s an Italian marketplace and food Hall. A Mediterranean touch in New York, which offers from extra virgin olive oil to fresh sweets and pasta. There are a lot of restaurants to choose from, but some fresh cheese, charcuterie and antipasti couldn’t be a better choice after a long walk on a hot day!
