Let’s face it, no one has the time to research restaurants before a trip…it’s time consuming and requires a bit of detective work. Well, this is where we come into play…to give you Rusty’s NYC Food & Drink Guide. The great thing about New York City, is that eating at non-chain restaurants is a requirement.
Local restaurants are on every corner, and the amount of options is dizzying. There are some super-tasty local spots, which I have navigated for you. From vegetarian to pizza to cocktails and dive bars, here is what I uncovered in NYC. Read more after the break!
Just follow the links to read my full reviews (under Rustafarian) !
BEST COCKTAIL BAR: Pegu club (Manhattan / Soho): “5 STARS because they invented the Bensonhurst.”
BEST (Belgian) BEER BAR: Spuyten Duyvil (Brooklyn): “They have millions of belgian beers that even beer snobs haven’t heard of, and cheeses that totally make you blush.”
BEST DIVE BAR: Red Hook Bait & Tackle (Brooklyn / Red Hook): “The jukebox is sick. We were jamming to Otis Redding and James Brown… just feeling the soul. Sounded great and super classic.”
BEST FALAFEL: Oasis (Brooklyn / Williamsburg): “The most amazing falafel… texture is insane. Creamy almost, just forgiving and a tad crunchy and hot and smooth inside. AMAZING.”
BEST SCHWARMA: Mamoun’s (Manhattan / Greenwich Village): “Kid you not, I doubled up at lunch. Finished a pita sandwich, and then went back…”
Next time you’re in NYC, be sure to give these a shot!
