New York Food Insider

When visiting New York, people always wonder about the best places to eat. There are of course, the most famous 3 star Michelin Restaurants that we all know about. But here's a list that will please most foodies looking for a delicious bite.


65 4th Avenue  New York, NY 10003
(212) 388-0088

If you haven't heard about this famous Tokyo ramen house, then be prepared for a long wait at its New York outpost. Just get any notion of Top Ramen out of your mind before venturing to this hip and uber trendy Lower East Side establishment. Handmade noodles reign supreme here, and the bowl to devour is the Akamaru Modern with a poached egg on top. 


222 Waverly Place  Manhattan, NY 10014
(212) 691-6101

Falafel sandwiches arent just vegetarians and those of middle eastern decent. This pita sandwich is not only filled to the brim with delicious veggies and their unique falafel balls, but its chef-owner previously honed her chops at Bobby Flay's Mesa Grill. Falafel joints are a plenty on New York, but trust me - this one is tops.


215 Court Street  Brooklyn, NY 11201
(718) 222-3484

If there is any valid excuse for venturing out to Brooklyn, this would be it. Most dishes here are under $10 and would easily satisfy the hungriest crowds. The crowds will testify not only to its authenticity but flavor and value. The atmosphere is loud and trendy but their food and service deliver like a well oiled Thai machine. 

Tacos Matamoros

4508 5th Avenue  Brooklyn, NY 11220
(718) 871-7627

Although most would admit that New York is too far from Mexico to have any decent Mexican food, Tacos Matamoros is the exception to the rule. Their $2.50 tacos deliver like the sunday paper, and will keep you coming back for more. Look around the restaurant and more than likely you'll be the only outsider. A true sign of a quality local joint.


211 East 43rd Street  New York, NY 10017
(212) 953-7253

In the depths of a corporate high-rise, Sakagura is not only a secret izakaya hideout, but also an Orwellian teleportation machine designed to take you to Tokyo, circa 1970. Their late night bites are a good respite for after club hopping, but their mainstay is their 300 bottle collection of Sake's. Need I say more?
