Spent this past weekend in NYC, such a fun place to visit!
Cue the Taylor Swift song, “Welcome To New York!”
Where to begin? Well, I guess I should start with accommodations. We stayed at the World Center One hotel in the financial district. It was just a hop and a skip away from the beautiful architecture of the World Trade Center Memorial/museum.
All I have to say is wow. So much thought was put into the 9/11 museum and it is breathtaking. Definitely worth blocking out a chunk of your time in the city to explore it all.
Then of course you can’t come to NYC without finding some good local drink & food spots. When I travel, on one hand I love being the typical tourist & seeing what I need to see when visiting a particular place. On the other hand, I love getting to find hidden treasures in cities, things the locals like and rave about them upon my return. Being from Texas, I wanted to find a great margarita. I definitely found a great one at this cute little bar named Dick & Jane in Brooklyn. Definitely a fun and quaint little bar.
Finally, you have to experience some delicious food in NYC. There are really endless options for whatever your foodie heart desires. Mine usually desires Italian. So we definitely checked out a couple of local pizza places after nights out on the town, they did not disappoint.
I told my boyfriend I wanted to have a “fancy” dinner while we were there. So on our second night, we ventured to Brooklyn and found cute, true Italian restorante called Broccolino. We started our meal with some traditional burrata. Side note: they had wine on tap. Any place with that is usually going to be a winner in my book. Cheers!
For my entree, I chose to have the Tagliatelle al Ragu. O.M.G. (it’s pictured below). It was absolutely delicious! I would recommend this if you want something as traditional as possible.
While I we had a very quick trip, these three spots were definitely ones I loved and would go to again the next time I’m there. What are some places you have found in the Big Apple that you would recommend to others? Share them in the comments below.
Ciao for now!
