Those New York Eats ~ Part 1

One of the best parts about living in New York is the wide array of food that surrounds you.  Here I am catching up on some of the clutch eats surrounding me in the city.  Many of these pictures have just been sitting around in a draft post (or realistically my iPhoto) waiting to be dropped into a lovely post such as this.  That being said, many of them are from months ago during the warmer days and non-whole30 experiment.  Still, plenty of fun to share 🙂

BREAKFAST

 Joe Coffee
~ Lexington (UES) ~ Union Square ~ West Village ~ Chelsea ~ Columbia ~ Upper West ~
Iced cold brew latte w/ cherry scone (or a cinnamon chocolate chip scone)

Juicepress

And if you are feeling a little too healthy with that vegan fresh pressed juice that could cost an arm and a leg, follow it up with some solid sugary fried dough 😉

The Donut Pub
203 W 14th St, New York, NY 10011

LUNCH

IMG_4656^^ Famous bone broth from brodo down in the East Village.  I was on my way home from a run (and Juicepress adventure) and decided to take a plunge and test it out.  Ordering from the menu is simple – which type of mix-ins would you like in your broth?  I went for the “marco” or broth with tumeric and ginger since those have apparently good anti-inflammatory powers.  To be honest, it was tasty but I’m not sure if I could afford the $8ish 10oz snack every day.

Grimaldi’s Pizza
1 Front St, Brooklyn, NY ~ (718) 858-4300
M-Th: 11:30-10:45 pm; Fri: 11:30-11:45 pm; Sat: 12:00-11:45 pm; Sun: 12:00-10:45 pm

Again, pairing all love of foods together.  Some claim Grimaldi’s is THE BEST.  I think to be fair, one would have to order all of the pizzas, line them up and do a taste test.  But, then it ruins the experience if one pie is better inside the restaurant versus takeout.  Anyways, for more pizza joints to check out, here is one versions of the “Most Amazing Slices in NYC“.

Pure Thai Cookhouse
766 9th Avenue #2, New York, NY 10019 (52nd/9th)
(212) 581-0999

Thai is not always my jam, probably because I haven’t really had a solid Thai outing, until this.  Noodles with perfectly spiced chicken and a cold Thai tea make everything better. Don’t you agree?  It’s the power of food (and people) that make the world go around.

DINNER

IMG_0436 IMG_0437 ^^ It might be smart to order mussels at a mussel bar buuuuut I don’t like them, so I went for the grab meat guacamole and spicy greens instead.

IMG_0439^^ Had I had extra space, I would have selected the “Deep Fried Whoopiee Pie” or even a medley of the “Flex Donuts” just because.

 Flex Mussels
174 E 82nd St ~ 154 W 13th St
~ Menu ~ Book a Table ~ Info ~

IMG_7624

^^ The Corner Deli, which guess what? ISN’T A DELI!  Officially recognized by the world wide web as a casual taqueria, the menu offers a good selection of authentic and delicious Mexican fare.

IMG_7625

IMG_7631IMG_7635^^ Quite possibly the worst food photography ever but that would because it was shot 1) indoors 2) at night and 3) with flash.  Food photography no-no’s.  BUT the food was delicious if that’s worth anything {fish taco, horchata, plantains, avocado salad – aka sliced avocado}

Sooooooo if you made it to the end (even if you were skimming as I usually do…true story) CONGRATS!  More coming with of course a list of places that I would like to hit up in the next few months.

Who’s in?  Any recommendations?
