This past weekend Joe came to NYC to visit and help cross some food places off my NYC bucket list. On Saturday we started the day by checking out The Coffee Project New York in East Village. Joe ordered their Nitro-flight which is cold brew fed through a keg and infused with nitrogen that gives it a creamy texture without adding any dairy. I ordered their famous Deconstructed Latte which is a latte broken into 3-parts: espresso, steamed milk, and the full latte itself. This unique way to drink a latte helps you single out the individual flavors.
We then grabbed some lunch at a random hole-in-the-wall sandwich shop and spent some time walking around Thompson Square park.
Later that night we went to Patrizia’s of 2nd Avenue to try their famous star-shaped pizzas! We got one margarita and one buffalo chicken pizza and they were so delicious! If you’re ever in NYC I highly recommend checking out Patrizia’s for their pizza.
On Sunday I brought Joe to Brooklyn so he could check out Smorgasburg, a food flea market held in Williamsburg every Saturday and Prospect Park every Sunday. There were so many options we didn’t know where to start! Below is a list of all the cool food vendors we checked out before we got too full:
- We started off at John’s Juice with some freshly made pineapple juice with ginger served in a carved out pineapple. Super refreshing!
- We then made our way to the Big Mozz stand for their famous mozzarella sticks. These are probably the best mozzarella sticks I’ve ever had!
- Next we got some classic pork dumpling from Destination Dumplings and I successfully ate them with chopsticks. I’m pretty proud of myself since I don’t ever have a need to use chopsticks (I don’t like sushi)
- Since it was such a hot day we had to get some ice cream. We headed to the Wowfulls stand for a scoop of their special caramel chocolate ice cream with Oreo crumbs and chocolate drizzle served on their famous warm egg waffles. This was so delicious and exactly what we needed to cool off
- On our way out, we ended up getting a small brisket sandwich from the Mighty Quinn’s BBQ stand which was so good, but really put us over the edge with being full
I’d say we had a pretty successful weekend filled with many new food places that I can check off my bucket list. Feel free to reach out if you ever want any suggestions on where to eat in NYC. I’d be happy to share my favorite spots!
