Jack's Wife Freda (Lafayette & Spring St)
I love this place, like seriously LOVE. My friend Erika from Retro Flame and I go crazy for brunch here - and I promise you it won't disappoint. My favourite dishes include the Madame Freda and, of course the Avocado Toast! Jack's Wife Freda is only a very tiny restaurant, but is one of Soho's most popular places to eat, so I'd recommend getting there early and being prepared to queue!
Dishes (45th and 5th Av)
My friends will now how crazy I am over this place. I'm not gonna lie...its pretty pricey, but for the fresh organic food - its so worth it! Dishes is designed like a buffet table and you can grab a salad box and just fill up! The box is weighed when you get to the counter and you pay depending upon the weight. Choose from fresh greek salad, roasted veggies, noodles, quiches and much more! Its my go-to place for lunch while at uni.
The View at The Marriot Marquee (45th and Broadway)
The View is located on the 48th floor of the Marriot Marquee Hotel in the heart of New York City. The restaurant slowly revolves, completing a full circle each hour, above Times Square whilst you eat the delicious menu of modern American cuisine and sip fine wines. Booking is a vital for the restaurant, but The View also has a bar/lounge area which is free to walk into without reservations. As many of you may or may not know, I'm like OBSESSED with sunset, so I'd 100% recommend going for dinner around this time, to experience this - and its also a great way of seeing the city by day and by night!
Two Hands (Mott St)
Another favourite spot for brunch, Two Hands is a great little cafe with a cool atmosphere. Avocado Toast (sorry again) is to die for here and the baristas serve up a delicious latte. Smoothies are fresh and very good too! Plus I'm a sucker for a glass jar. And is it just me, or are all the staff really good looking?
With over 100 vendors by the East River Park, Smorgasburg is a Brooklyn Food Market that attracts hundreds of people on a Saturday afternoon. A foodie's paradise, with everything from Moroccan brioche to Fish & Chips, fresh fruit smoothies to scented beer, there truly is something for everybody. Aim to visit on a sunny clear day and the views of Manhattan will not disappoint!
