New York City has impeccable standards when it comes to its restaurants, which puts it on par with other great cities of the world. Some of the chefs have trained their whole life’s to serve people like you. Fine dining has been part of the culture in New York for years. It’s no small part either! Sushi restaurants tend to be popular and all of them offer pristine fish and polite staff. One of the most popular restaurants for me though when I was in New York last had to be Daniel, the food is just beautiful, multi dimensional and worldly. Other favorites of mine have to be Chef’s Table at Brooklyn fare, Le Bernardin, Corton, Eleven Madison Park. Eating out in any of these restaurants is a luxury in itself. The food is just stunning and the waiters work beautifully with customers.
Places of Interest
New York City is packed with places of interest. Some of the most obvious ones being: Times Square, Statue of Liberty, the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Museum of Modern Art. Other great places to visit however have to be Central Park, Central Park Zoo, Film Forum, the Empire State Building, the Bowery Ballroom, and the Grand Central Terminal. Rockefeller Centre is also a great destination for visitors any time of year. It’s located midtown Manhattan, it’s probably most famous for its Christmas tree and ice rink, but it also offers the wonderful top of the rock observation deck and the radio city music hall. Visiting 92nd Street Y (Cultural Institution and Community Center) is also a must as it plays host to some of the top artists in the world.
