If you want some original Mexican food, then you must go to Gabriela’s Restaurant at 688 Columbus Ave on 93rd Street! Gabriela brought her family from Mexico to develop the original menu and recipes that are used today. Still family-owned, the restaurant provides home-style Mexican food in a modern and fun neighborhood setting. It’s the perfect place to celebrate with your friends and family, so visiting this Upper West Side sensation is a must! We can vouch for how delicious this restaurant is since they served savory treats at the 2018 Oscars Red Carpet Viewing Party. All of our guests raved about how delicious the food was and how they couldn’t wait to go and dine at the actual restaurant after the event.

We love ramen, which makes Totto Ramen the perfect place to eat. Though small in size, they serve big bowls of flavor with reasonable prices. Choose from one of their creations, or customize your own ramen bowl with their extensive list of toppings! These include regular noodles, wavy noddles, scallions, onions, nori, char siu, kikurage, Koji Miso, ground pork, half boiled eggs, and bean sprouts. Check out the Midtown East location at 248 East 52nd Street between 2nd and 3rd avenue, or the Midtown West one at 366 W 52nd Street between 8th and 9th avenue.

Places To Eat In NYC: East Village

The Smith has many locations around Manhattan, but it’s a must-eat if you’re in the East Village. Located at 55 Third Avenue between 10th and 11th street, this restaurant satisfied the hungry neighborhood for over a decade. From weekend brunchers to late night eaters, The Smith has every comfort food in a positive atmosphere. The cooks and employees truly care about every moment and meal spent here, so you are encouraged to come back time and time again!

Places To Eat In NYC: Times Square

Times Square is home to shopping, shows, and the most famous restaurants. If you want to experience an Italian family feast here as well, then there’s nothing like Carmine’s at 200 West 44th Street. This Italian place is located two blocks from the subway station, so it’s conveniently accessible from anywhere in the city. They are best-known for their hearty portions of your favorite Italian dishes, served family-style for the whole table. Afterwards, you can effortlessly walk out the door to your Broadway Show, New York’s Madame Tussauds, or Ripley’s Believe it or Not!

Hell’s Kitchen is the center for dining, but one of our favorites is located on 450 10th Ave. Another family-run business, Friedman’s is a gluten-free safe haven with the best pancakes, waffles, and fried chicken. Their mantra is “Eat good food,” which is true for any of the antibiotic-free meats and local vegetables you order. Their menu is friendly to everyone, so there’s no excuse not to go!
