Must Eat New York Food Recommendations

New York Food Recommendations

Since there are sooo many good restaurants (and bars) everywhere on practically every street corner,

Keep in mind, most businesses close within a year

due to so much competition everywhere.

Any place open for several years in NY is considered good!!

1) Bagels, pretzels, pizza, and hot dogs anywhere or sold on the street

2) Gray’s Papaya (Hot Dogs)

3) Mamoun’s Falafel Place – EAST VILLAGE

  • It’s just a little hole in the wall (only 2 or 3 seats so people usually grab and go; line can go out the door but they prepare the food quickly)
  • You can sit in washington square park for a few minutes watching the street performers while you eat then continue walkin around the city
  • or you can walk down St. Mark’s Street & sit at Tompkins Square Park (though not as nice as Washington square park)

4) Rudy’s in Hell’s Kitchen – Get free hot dogs with every beer purchase
