If you want pizza, go to Lombardi’s in Little Italy (Spring and Mott). If you want the best desserts, go to Serendipty in the Upper East Side (61st & 3rd). Or Magnolia Bakery in the village or Lincoln Center area. If you want awesome Italian Soprano family style go to Carmines in the theatre district or Upper West Side. As I recommend to all NYC newbies, please book a double decker tour to take you to all the sights and allows you to hop on and off! Enjoy!

What kind of food do you like and what price range are you looking for?

Yes the bus tour is the best way to see the city. Do It!! Plus the Marriott Grand MArquis Hotel in Times Square has a rooftop revolving restaurant. Great place to see a 360, plus the piano bar on the 3rd floor has a GREAT view of times sqaure, and fab cocktails. Also 230 on 5th has a rooftop ar with an amazing view. Right infront of the empire state building. Pop in for a cosmo, sit outside and enjoy! (It looks like an office building from the outside, go in and take the elevator to the top floor)

The Shake Shack at Madison Square park is lots of fun. I would def go there.

Also, WMForever, I believe Serendipty is still closed after violating health codes.

Yup, I will have to second and third the double decker bus, probably the cheapest (besides walking) and easiest way to get around, and the most bang for your buck! You’ll see MANY great restaurants. Also, we’re from NY, and my stepfather will always have his Zagat’s guide in his back pocket… silly, but helpful!!

The 1st season winner of Top chef, openned a restaurant called Perilla which is really good and fairly affordable for a nice dinner. 



If you can afford it Nobu is awesome.  



Joe’s Shanghai in chinatown is great for dumplings, though if you’re from toronto, the chinese food is much better there.



la Lanterna is a great italian coffee-bistro type place, they also have a cute outdoor courtyard. http://lalanternacaffe.com/


for a really good brunch/lunch, you should try having tea at Alice’s tea cup.
