Monica's New York Restaurants
Another foodie asked me for some suggestions so I thought I would share them with all of you. Here are some places to check out while visiting New York...
Patsy's Pizza. 61 West 74th. I love pizza!!! This is my favorite.
Grimaldi's. 19 Old Fulton St. Brooklyn. Now that the weather is getting nicer, you can walk the Brooklyn Bridge and go to Grimaldis.
Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory. Right across the Brooklyn Bridge. I stop there on my way back once I've had my pizza.
Coppola's. 206 W 79th. A nice reasonable italian place. Great pastas and pizza.
Gradisca. 126 W 13th. Pricy but worth it. All pastas are homemade. $30 pastas. I love the gnocchi in a truffle cream sauce.
Harry's Burrito. 241 Columbus Ave. (67th) Great outdoor seating and killer margaritas. There is usually a wait but worth it. One of the large drinks is all you need! I like to build my own quesadilla.
Fred's & High Life. 83rd & Amsterdam. They are across the street from each other. Great American food. Hign Life also has good sushi. Lots of bars on Amsterdam.
The Half King. 505 West 23rd. The best and biggest burgers. I love the sweet potato fries too. In the back there is garden seating. It gets a good bar crowd also.
Zen Palate. There are a few in the city. The most popular vegetarian.
Thai Basil. 860 9th Ave. A tiny place with very authentic Thai food. I love it.
Serendipity. 225 East 60th. An ice cream lovers dream. You must get the frozen peanut butter hot chocolate. They do serve food but I go for dessert.
The great thing about New York is that you can stumble onto a great restaurant at any time. All of these neighborhoods are worth exploring. Happy Eating!!
