My New York Bohemian List

March 13, 2014

There are many things I hate about New York but there are about twice the number of the things that I love about it. Here are a collections of things I tell people to do, eat and drink. Veers vegan/ vegetrian for the most part.

So here they are, my greatest hits:


Central Park Run the bridal path or just anywhere
Walk the Highline Most beautiful in the spring or fall
Museum of Modern Art Indoor hanging helicopter is the highlight
The MET Remember, it’s donation based which they don’t make obvious
Williamsburg, Brooklyn Lot of cool little places in and around Bedford Ave
Walk the Brooklyn Bridge Ask for the ice-cream factory on the Brooklyn side
Sleep No More A moving play set in a warehouse that you walk around
Gallow Green A spooky rooftop bar with frequent visits by the casts of Sleep No More
Google Office Rooftop Find a Google buddy who works at Google


Hangawi Korean vegan food with unbelievable ambience
Beyond Sushi Best vegan sushi.
Pio pio Peruvian Chicken. Nandos bites this place’s dust
Five Leaves Australian cusines, done right (in Williamsburg, Brooklyn)
Dirt Candy Vegan prix fixe. Just brilliant
Candle Cafe Tasty vegetarian but nowhere close to healthy
Bubby’s American Southern food and they have the best pies in town
La Esquina Mouth watering tacos. Enough said
Sigiri If you’ve never had Srilankan, just go. Order the Lamprais
Kottu House If you liked Sigiri, go here for the Kottu. Say hi to Chaz


Amor y Amargo A Bitters Tasting Room
Greenpoint Brewery They experiment about 300 beers a year
230 5th Ave Expensive, touristy but also probably the best rooftop bar in the city
The Raines Law Room Probably the best prohibition setting bar in NYC with solid cocktails
Chaan tea house A place to wind down with a book or meet friends for tea
Blue Bottle Coffee Rockefeller building
Toby’s Estate Coffee Williamsburg, Brooklyn
Kaffe 1668 They take their coffee very seriously here
Le Colombe Mochas are really good
Mud Truck Try the mocha from the truck or the store
Round K Murakami would go here for coffee


Lady M Haven’t had anything like it before
Morgenstern’s Icecream The icecream temperature they serve at is perfect
Levain The best cookie in the world (Dark Chocolate peanut butter)
Magnolia Cupcakes Quite touristy now, but that shoudn’t stop you
Momofuku milk bar Get the compost cookie
Van Leeuwen Natural ice-creams. Try the Ginger or Gianduja

I’ve done my fare bit of travelling and I hate to admit it, but New York is the world’s most amazing city and these places are just a few reasons for it.
