while there is always a new york eats tab on the blog, i finally got around to organizing a lengthy list of our favorite restaurants plus a ton i've yet to try. i don't know how many times i've been in a particular neighborhood trying to recall the name of a new restaurant i read about in new york magazine. or i get a text from ed saying... "leaving a meeting in the east village, what was that taco place?" for whatever reason, i've taken on the spousal role as the person who knows where to get a decent bite to eat and i kind of like it that way.
if it weren't for dear friends who eat well and blog about it later, we'd be looking at chipotle every time we travel. staying on top of the food scene in any big city is a chore. i will also confess that my idea of a good restaurant has nothing to do with 5+ courses or eating a pig from snout to tail. the majority of restaurants we come back to week after week include really simple farm to table food.
with that in mind, i hope you benefit from our list of favorites just as i have benefited from others. and if you think nyc mostly sucks (because sometimes it does) and you never want to visit, that's fine too.
enjoy your weekend!
