So you’re heading to New York City, the Big Apple. It’s an exciting city, with a special energy unlike any other. They say you can find anything in New York, and that certainly applies to dining. A world of culinary opportunities awaits you!

Choices, choices, choices

With thousands of restaurants offering food of every imaginable type, it’s a safe bet that you won’t worry about finding a place to eat in New York City. The borough of Manhattan alone has more than 3,000 dining options.

In fact, your challenge will come not in finding an eatery, but in choosing one from the vast array that the Empire City has to offer. Dim sum in Chinatown? Soul food in Harlem? Seafood in Soho? No matter what you’re in the mood for, you’ll be able to take a delicious bite out of America’s biggest (and maybe tastiest) city.

Travel tip: Aim for variety, and try to fit many different culinary experiences into your trip. Even if your hotel restaurant is fantastic, get out and explore. And why not take this opportunity to try something you’ve never had before?

The whole world, on your plate

More than a third of New York’s residents started life in another country. Since the early days of its history, New York City has seen huge waves of immigrants, from all corners of the globe. This incredible diversity has created a unique identity and incredibly rich cultural heritage. New Yorkers from around the world have contributed much from their native cultures – including food.

You don’t need a passport to experience the flavors of countries around the world. From classic American diner fare to the exotic flavors of the Far East, New York City has it all. Do you feel like Caribbean? French? Korean? Brazilian? Authentic cuisine from every part of the globe can be found in New York.

Travel tip: Yelp is a great tool for finding restaurants. Install this app on your phone, enter the type of food you’re looking for, and read real reviews of matching restaurants near you.

Dining with the stars

New York has become a culinary destination, and with good reason. Some of the most famous and highly regarded chefs in the world have chosen to open restaurants in this vibrant city – chefs like Daniel Boulud, Lidia Bastianich, Marcus Samuelsson, Mario Batali, and Bobby Flay. These culinary artists have revolutionized the dining experience. Make sure your New York visit includes at least one indulgent meal from the kitchen of an award-winning chef.

Travel tip: It’s not easy to get a reservation at some famous New York City restaurants. It pays to do some advance research. Choose your “star” restaurant before your ever leave home, and make a reservation well in advance. That way you won’t be disappointed on your trip!

Great food on the go

Some of the best culinary offerings in New York don’t require a reservation to enjoy. Neighborhood delicatessens turn out mile-high pastrami sandwiches with house-made pickles and chips. Grab a salad, soup, or a sweet treat at a cafe.

For the full New York City experience, stop for a hot dog at one of the city’s legendary food carts. And of course, you need to try a fresh, hot slice of New York style pizza!
