New York City, NY

New York Dining – the Fun, the Fast and the Unusual
The unusual in NYC.Photo on

New York is one of those cities that always make an impression, no matter whether you are a native, or just stopping by. One of the best experiences the city has to offer is its food. The choice seems endless; whether you are enjoying breakfast at Little Park in Tribeca, tasting old-fashioned Italian cuisine at Pellegrino’s on Mulberry Street, or checking out Dunkin Donuts locations for a sugar rush.

There are so many places to eat in New York that you are spoiled for choice. We cannot possibly list them all here; so we have chosen a great eating experience from each of the five boroughs, to give you a taste of what to expect.


You should definitely try Lexington Candy Shop. This classical diner opened almost 100 years ago, back in 1925. Located in the Upper East Side, the Lexington Candy Shop has been managed (and owned) by three generations of the same family. Many New Yorkers claim they have the best milkshake in the city. The amazing thing is, it's still done with an 80-year-old, Hamilton Beach mixer that gives it that unique, smooth frothiness. The place is still designed with the old-fashioned menu board about the counter, giving it that cool 40's ambiance.


We cheated a bit here because we know that Oddfellows Ice Cream is not only available at its Brooklyn branch, but this taste bud sensation had to be included on our list. If you are after a light bite, and you have a sweet tooth, there is nothing better. This place definitely has the fun factor too. Have you ever tasted chorizo and caramel ice cream before? You get the opportunity to do just that at Oddfellows.

The Bronx

Spend some time in the Bronx and you will probably want to check out the local pizza. Louie & Ernie’s pizza is definitely one of the best places to do this if the reviews on TripAdvisor are anything to go by. People rave about the quality of the food, as well as the cozy and welcoming atmosphere. It’s also an affordable place to stop off and have a meal.

If you want a dining experience that is a little different, you may want to drop by Weekender Billiards in Woodside. You get to try Bhutanese food and you can also take in a game of billiards while you are there. It’s different and it’s also very popular.

Staten Island

We are finishing off our list of New York dining experiences with the Fab Cup Coffee Shop which opened its doors in 2014. Let’s face it, fine dining may be great at times, but where would we be without the humble coffee shop. This one has a good ambiance and an impressive snack menu which includes crepes, healthy pots, and pastries.

We have given you just the tiniest glimpse into the New York eating experience. Hopefully, this inspires you to get out there and give it a try.
