Sorry, sorry – I know it’s incredibly basic of me. But when it comes to NYC the food is so insane, I’ve spent half my time on Instagram logically planning how I can fit all the food whilst I’m there. Cronuts, Donuts, Cruellers (!!), I want them all. So I’ve included below my favourite Instagram crazes from NYC that I will be trying to find when I’m there. ENJOY
Big Gay Ice Cream Shop
They had me at the name to be honest, but as soon as I found them on Instagram I became obsessed. I just hope it’s still warm enough when we visit in late October that I can eat as much ice cream as I intend to…
I actually found this place via Instagram, and it’s unbelievable the place doesn’t have it’s own account because the decor is practically screaming for it’s own hashtag. This Indian restaurant in NYC is smothered in fairy lights that will make for the perfect pic.
Dominique Ansel Bakery
Ever heard of a cronut? A croissant-dougnut hybrid? Well, now you have – and you’re welcome. These were created in this very bakery, and apparently queues form around the block every day. Sounds like a recommendation to me.
Getting ready for fall and October's Cronut® for NYC: Pumpkin Cranberry, filled with pumpkin ganache, cranberry jam, and finished with nutmeg sugar. Starts Oct 1st at #DominiqueAnselBakery in #Soho, preorders are up now at www.CronutPreorder.com. (Email us for large orders at firstname.lastname@example.org). #Cronut
Taiyaki Ice Cream
Yep, these are those famous fish ice cream cones. But, gimmick aside, the ice cream comes in a range of flavours – and often served together, and with an array of fancy looking toppings too.
Burger Inc, NYC
Another spot I found through Instagram, thanks to my new favourite account – Nyceeeeats. Their Instagram is absolutely insane, and filled with deep fried goodness. I’ve never had a deep fried mac and cheese ball, but to be honest, I feel like my whole life has been leading up to having one.
Black Seed Bagels
I am a full fledged bagel fan but I just don’t eat them enough. They’re a famous NYC staple however, so I’m sure when I’m there I can fit a few in, especially when they look like this…
Now, this is a place I’ve actually been to! Dough doughnuts in New York is a lovely little spot right in the thick of the city, but you can either eat in or take one away to snack on elsewhere. The doughnuts are huge and come in a range of exciting and wide ranging flavours – the one I had below was apple and cinnamon and it took me two attempts to finish it.
Jack’s Wife Freda
I’ve followed JWF on Insta for almost 2 years now and I love their posts. It’s a mixture of their food, their restaurant and also their – incredible stylish – owners. When I was in NYC with my boyfriend last year they were doing a big photo shoot at the time, and I always hope the pictures I’m liking are from that day. Also reminds me that I want their cookbook (hint hint to any family members reading…)
it's time for breakfast:) & some #JWFfoodForThought post Yom Kippur meditation for today: I will see less faults in others; I will inquire into my own self instead. Yes, we unplug to replug; almost everything will work again if you unplug it for afew minutes, including you. Thankyou @azitanahai for your words always and @headspace ♥️ & thanks for the pic @prettyfrowns

New York is well known for it’s plentiful options of bottomless brunch, but throughout all my searching Calle Ocho stands out as being one of the best. Unlimited sangria for 2 hours – what could go wrong?..
Citizens of Chelsea
The food here looks lovely, which is handy, because the main thing that drew me to Citizens of Chelsea was their dreamy interiors.
