New York is first and foremost a melting pot of different cultures has come a culinary tradition so rich that even street food vendors have earned Michelin stars.
If you’re looking for delicacies to hunt, the city’s neighborhoods are a catalog of new, classic and globally inspired cuisine. Not far from Rockefeller Center is Manhattan’s legendary 21 Club, the decades-old eatery that still tops the New York social scene. In Chinatown, you can grab plates of dim sum at Nom Wah, noodles at Lam Zhou and Peking Duck at Peking Duck House. Italian food? The city’s selection is best described as “bellissimo!”
If you favor your sweet tooth – but don’t mind standing in line – the croissant-meets-donut “cronut” at the Dominic Ansel Bakery in SoHo is a delicacy well worth the wait.
