Happy 2017 to you all!
Marty and I just returned home from our fifth annual trip to NYC. As you may remember from years past, we always visit over the New Year.
This years trip was cut a day short (because of an upcoming trip we have planned in the spring) but it was a nice getaway nonetheless.
We mostly stuck to our old ‘haunts’; however, we did add a few new places to our itinerary.
- Diane’s Recommendations:
- Niu Noodle House (West Village): We rang in the New Year at this delicious dim sum/noodle house. We shared several plates of dim sum and for my entree I ordered the Veggie Heaven (veggie broth + mushrooms, fried tofu, bok choy, baby corn, nori with Soba noodles.) If you’re interested in Dim Sum – I highly recommend this place. We just sort of stumbled upon it and we actually prefer it to Nom Wah Tea Parlor.
- Pomodoro Pizza (Nolita): We were craving pizza on New Year’s Day. We walked around the Village for a bit before stumbling upon Pomodoro. Situated a block away from the famous Lombardi Pizza, any place that can stay in business that nearby had to be good in our book. Marty and I split a medium Neapolitan/Brick House Style pizza.
- Creperie NYC (Central Village): Apparently this place was on Throwdown with Bobby Flay. I ordered the ‘Famous’ crepe (Strawberry, Banana, Nutella, Ice Cream, and Whipped Cream.) For something so decadent, I was left 1) without a belly ache and 2) not regretting a single calorie.
- Saigon Shack (Central Village) : We stumbled upon the Saigon Shack a few years back. I’ve decided it will be my mission to find a similar pho in Columbus; I’ve yet to find a comparable bowl. The summer rolls are delicious, too.
