My favorite brunch spot in SOHO ★Sadelle’s★

Sadelle’s has been a very popular brunch spot since it opened in 2015. It is my favorite brunch spot in New York City. Major Food Group manages this restaurant. Entering from the cobalt blue door, it is refreshing because of the high ceiling and skylight. As you enter, there is smoked salmon sliced by hand and bagels displayed on the right. This can be purchased if you would like to bring something home. It is located in the center of SOHO. You need to book in advance for brunch on weekends. The most popular dish here is the salmon & bagel tower which is fun to share. The smoke salmon

A restaurant where you can select your own fresh seafood ★Astoria Seafood★

I am addicted to Astoria Seafood. It is located just off of Main Street in Astoria so it’s in a quiet neighborhood. It is both a retail fish shop and a restaurant. So many choices of fresh seafood. You pick whatever you would like to eat and put it in a plastic bag. Then just bring it to the counter, the fish is weighed, you pay based on the weight, tell them how you would like your fish cooked and then it’s delivered to your table. The inside of the restaurant is very simple. Kind of like a diner. Don’t forget to ask for garlic bread. It’s excellent but sometimes

Sunday Market at Upper West Side

I always look forward to going to the Sunday Farmer’s Market on the Upper West Side. It is fun to look at the organic vegetables, fresh fish (always a queue for the fresh fish), artisanal cheeses, wine, pies and homemade cakes and cookies. The market is located on Columbus Avenue between 77th and 81st Street. The hours are from 10:00AM until the evening and is very popular with the locals. Across the street from the Farmer’s Market is the Green Flea Market. The Flea Market opens at 10:00AM and sells antique furniture, plates, and clothes including furs even in the heat of the summer. While browsing at the Flea Market,

Restaurant / bar with band ★Tavern On The Green ★

Tavern On The Green Long time ago,  shepherd used to live here, Restaurant / bar Tavern on the green. It is often used for movie. Before, it was famous as gorgeous restaurant for celebrities, but went bankrupt in 2009. It opened again in 2014 by new owner as casual restaurant/bar. Food is ok. It might be good idea to have drink after walk in central park, but my recommendation is Friday night. There is live jazz band and swing dancers enjoy dancing in front of stage. Admission free.   You can just have drink at the bar. No cover charge. During summer time, you can enjoy jazz and watch

Night cruise in Manhattan

Dinner cruises are expensive and the food is not very good.  Also, cruises that last a long time can get boring.  That’s why I recommend a 90 minute cruise without dinner. It’s best to get your tickets in advance since these cruises frequently sell out. Alcohol is served onboard so you can enjoy the scenery with a cold beer. Skyscrapers at sunset Statue of Liberty at sunset (I like the Statue of Liberty) Beautiful views like this one. I did not upload a picture but people have fun doing the famous Titanic pose (Of course I did this as well) It can get cold and windy so please bring something

Beneath the cheese and the toasted French bread is hot onion soup. It’s the most delicious French onion soup I have ever had.

New Orleans-style seafood restaurant in the Village★The Boil★

The Boil Waverly, Newly opened New Orleans-style seafood restaurant in the Village. OMG! This restaurant is so much fun! I love this place. When you are seated, the waiter will make you wear a bib and blue rubber gloves. I had the fried oysters as an appetizer and the Lobster & Crab Combo for my main. The big, fried oyster was juicy and delicious. The Lobster & Crab Combo was served in a big plastic bag and dropped right in the middle of the table. You have to pick the shrimp from plastic bag, twist the head off, chew on the head and remove the shell on the tail.
