Pre Covid-19 we searched the internet everyday looking for the very best of What’s Happening, primarily on Manhattan’s WestSide, so that you didn’t have to.”
We made it as easy as 1-2-3.
Covid-19 has required some changes for the time being.
For October we are going to try a different format – “Top 10 Corona Culture” – updated info and video especially suited to these difficult times OR NYC related visual info (Instagram and YouTube) OR all the NYC news you need to start your day.
We hope you will come back often to see what’s cooking here.
Today it’s Best NYCity Restaurants.
With restaurants partially opened or only open for takeout, this info is more useful for that glorious time when we have beaten the virus and life has returned to some form of normal.
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:
Best Places to Eat in Times Square (tripsavvy.com)
Best Restaurants in 55 NYC Neighborhoods (zagat.com)
Where To Eat Uptown in NYC (fodors.com)
The Definitive Midtown Dining Guide (thrilist.com)
Where to Eat and Drink Near the High Line (thrilist.com)
The Grub Street Guide to Affordable Sushi in New York (grubstreet,com)
The Absolute Best Restaurants in the Meatpacking District (grubstreet,com)
11 Tastes of Chinatown (nycgo.com)
Restaurant Row Guide (nycgo.com)
The 15 Best Places with a Happy Hour in the Upper West Side (foursquare)
We hope you enjoy this change of pace, then please return here November 1, and every day for our daily, hot off the presses event guide with “Only the Best” NYCity event info.
