April Events + Best NYC Restaurants (04/10)

GD: Covid-19 has required some changes for the time being. Stay Safe.

==============================================================

For the month of April we are going to try a different format – on some days we will go visual and offer a selection of the very best NYCity Instagram photos, YouTube videos, or Pinterest Pins. On other days you will find info on the Best NYC Restaurants or Top OnlineTravel Forums with NYC info. We hope you will come back often to see what’s cooking here. Today it’s Best NYCity Restaurants.

===========================================================

Best NYCity Restaurants

It’s not difficult to find a place to eat in Manhattan. Seems like there is at least one restaurant on every block. The New York City health department inspected over 10,000 eating establishments in Manhattan alone last year. And the selection of restaurants includes cuisines from all over the world.

Finding a good place to eat is a bit harder. We could start with New York City’s 72 Michelin-Starred Restaurants, but they are more suitable for those on expense accounts or celebrating a special event. No worries. There are many guides to good eating available, if you know where to look.

Here are a few of my favorite guides to the best restaurants in various neighborhoods:

=============================================================

We hope you enjoy this change of pace, then please return here May 1, and every day for our daily, hot off the presses event guide with “Only the Best” NYCity event info.

=============================================================

GD: In the age of Covid-19 this info from City Guide is one of the best sources of info on What’s Happening, even if it’s only available in your home, and not in your favorite venue. Stay Safe.
