Best Places to Eat in NYC

New York I love you. I really just love the place. I wouldn’t move there but I do love it. I think I love it so much because every time I go it’s based on food and shopping. If you let me spend the day eating and shopping it would be the best day ever for me. So basically those 5 days in NYC were the best days ever! 😉

The Milk Bar

 I have always read/heard about The Milk Bar, so I decided this would be the trip I finally visited.

I enjoyed it so much I went twice. And both times it was amazing.

Birthday Cake Truffles- They were a mix between a cookie dough texture and a cake ball. I am IN love! Literally in LOVE. One of the best things I have EVER eaten…EVER!! Seriously amazing. I can not speak highly enough of these damn birthday cake truffles.

Crack Pie- Another absolutely scrumptious delicious amazing slice of heaven!! I felt like the texture was that of a lemon bar but it was a buttery, carmely, toffeey ish flavor.


Bagel + Cream Cheese= YUMM-O

Bagels. I absolutely love them, especially if it’s an everything or cheese bagel or if I am feeling extra special a cheese & everything bagel. I visited Ess-a- Bagel for the first time this trip. When we arrived it was busy. We got in line and waited to order. Once I ordered the bagels I went to the register to pay, it took FOREVER. It was really annoying, as I had hot food and was just waiting to eat! It was worth the wait!

We had a Garlic Bagel with bacon, egg and cheese. It was very tasty. The bagel was like GARLIC obsessed. Coming from a garlic lover, I really think the bagel had too much garlic. I never thought I would ever say there was such a thing as too much garlic. But this was it!

We also ordered an Everything Bagel with cream cheese. It was scrumptious. We enjoyed every bite!


My best friend lives in New York City and I often speak to her as she is leaving work for the day. She passes an Italian restaurant on her way home that is always packed. When I last visited we decided to go. That night we had a reservation so we didn’t have to wait. The restaurant was warm and inviting. We sat towards the back.

We ordered lots of food.

Grilled Artichoke Hearts

Butternut Squash Salad

Buffalo Mozzarella

Sausage Stuffed Olive Breaded & Deep Fried


Polpettine alla siciliana
meatballs with pine nuts & raisins

Pici al limone
hand-rolled spaghetti with lemon & parmesan

Paccheri con ragĂș alla napoletana
large pouch pasta with pork ragu & caciocavallo cheese

Fettuccine di castagne con gamberi e zucca
chestnut pasta with shrimp, squash & black kale

Spaghetti Bolgnese w/ Meatballs

The food was amazing at Morandi, honestly not one bad thing to say about the place. Honestly give it a go, you will not regret it!

Max Brenner Chocolate Bar

I fell in love with Max Brenner Chocolate Bar in Australia. I was there for 16 days in February and visited good ol max 14 of those days. This place is honestly AMAZING! I fell in love everytime we went.

As soon as I knew I was going to NYC I knew I would be visiting the Max Brenner in the city. We went and it was the WORST experience I have ever had. The customer service was hideous. Honestly I have never experienced anything like it. Even the manager was a joke. Coming from the business I know things happen, you run out of ingredients, mistakes are made, some staff are not the politest but seriously this place was horrible.

Luckily, I have already experienced the amazingness of Max Brenner so I did on let this affect me, compltely. I will probably never return to the NYC location. Luckily there is a location in Las Vegas that I  visited last week that was great, just like all the locations in Australia.

Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate

 Clinton St. Baking

Clinton St. Baking was also a first for this trip. We went for breakfast with full intentions of getting the famous blueberry pancakes. But it never happened. I will be going back to try the pancakes. The french toast we had was spectacular. I loved every bite!

Alice’s Tea Cup

We wanted to go to Alices Tea Cup for brunch on Saturday but when we finally got there around 1:45pm the wait was 1hr 30 minutes. It was sad but we could not wait.. We were so hungry! I made sure to grab a berry scone before we left and I am glad I did. It was one of the moistest scones I have ever had.

Bondi Beach

I am home! I have spent the past 16 days in Australia, I spent most of my time at Bondi Beach and Sydney but visited Brisbane for two nights. It was a wonderful experience and I am so blessed and thankful I was able to go. It was a 15 hour flight each way! Luckily, I am used to flying to England, a 10 hour flight, so it wasn’t that bad. 

Bondi Beach was gorgeous! There was a pool right on the beach, Bondi Icebergs, it was so cool.

Next Stop…Bondi Beach, Sydney Australia

In five short weeks I will be headed on a 15hr plane ride to Sydney, Australia!! This will be my first vist to a country below the equator. My sister will accompany me as we set out for a memorable holiday. We are lucky enough to be staying with my cousin Lucy who lives in Bondi Beach. I am thrilled and cannot wait to share pictures I will have taken myself. Now in the mean time if I can control my shopping habits and sugar habits I will be ready for the beach! 🙂
