Where To Eat
New York is the melting pot where the best food from all over the planet come to hang out. From South African inspired braaivleis to Chinese dumplings infused with Moroccan flavour… it’s all there. Food differs from borough to borough. There’s Little Italy and there’s China town and of course there’s everything in between. The best thing about eating in NYC is that you don’t have to travel to Mexico to score good Mexi food. Don Peppe’s Rancho Grill comes highly recommended – we’ll fly all the way from OR Tambo just to sink our teeth into one of Don’s al pastor tortas. For Vietnamese rice rolls and the like, head to Legend Bar & Grill for the best South-East Asian food this side of the Pacific Ocean.
What To Do
There’s a reason why New York City is called the city that never sleeps. There’s rock ‘n roll down every avenue and electronic dance music up every street. As the party capital of the world, we would be falling short if we didn’t point you in the right direction when it comes to throwing it down in NYC. There’s Amadeus Night Club in Queens and then there’s The Bitter End in Greenwich Village. Either way, you’ll get your fill of good partying.
Manhattan and Brooklyn combined form the art belt of the city and is considered a mecca of sorts for art aficionados. A good place to start would be the Drawing Centre in SoHo – celebrities hang out there, we’ve been told. The New York theatre district known as Broadway will entice and excite many stage lovers and is worth the yellow cab trip through gridlock traffic.
Points of Interest
Uh… points of interest? Where do we start… The Statue of Liberty, Empire State Building, Brooklyn Bridge, Time Square, Madison Square Garden, Central Park, Rockefeller Centre, Grand Central Terminal… the list is as wide as the subway is long.
