With great apps like Instagram and Foodspotting, and the iPhone 4S being named one of the best cameras for food photography, us food bloggers have no use for a digital camera anymore. Since I’m only in NYC for three short months, I’ve been trying to get to as many note-worthy restaurants as possible, and documenting everything that enters my stomach. Here are some of the many delicious meals and novelties I have gotten to experience and photograph so far, broken up into categories.
(from top left, clockwise) Poached Artichoke Quesadilla with Idiazabal Cheese, Roasted Sweet Corn and Poblano Crema at Hell’s Kitchen in Hell’s Kitchen (great marketing strategy on their part), Japanese Barbeque at Gyu-Kaku in East Midtown (conveniently located in the same building as the EDWRR Office), the ever-famous Steamed Pork Buns at Momofuku Ssam Bar (followed by Cereal Milk ice cream, of course) and black bean and plantain croquetas at the modern Mexican tiny little basement of a restaurant, Mayahuel.
You Can’t Come to NYC Without Trying….
(from top left, clockwise) The entire variety of Baked by Melissa Cupcakes (my favorite being the PB & J), a grilled cheese from Little Muenster (I highly recommend the Taleggio, Fontina, Cremini & Shiitake Mushrooms if you like mushrooms as much as I do), a popsicle from La Newyrokina and pickles (among many other things) from Katz’s Deli (variety of sweet, sour and green tomatoes. The perfect snack on a hot summer day… besides popsicles of course!)
(from top left, clockwise) Pineapple punch- the perfect pregame. Nuff said. Soft serve at the Jersey shore, frozen yogurt from 16 Handles (or forty carrots, or pinkberry, or yogo, or red mango, you get the point), and the Gran Torrino at Eataly’s Cafe Lavazza- a cocktail of hot chocolate, a double shot of espresso, Borghetti liqueur, whipped cream and coffee beans.
And Finally, The Beautiful Views of NYC
(from top left, clockwise) the view from The W Residences at Ground Zero, a line for a matinee show on Broadway, pit masters doin’ their thang at the Big Apple BBQ, and Times Square at night. Oh New York, how I love you so.
