A day in New York

I thought it’s time I share a couple of my 2014 New York foodie highlights, if you have 24 hours in NY be sure to make some time for these spots.

First a coffee – A quick flat white and lil eggy from Abraco in the East Village one of my top NY coffee spots, I first mentioned Abraco on the blog in 2010 (see here)

Then brunch on the smallest tables in the West Village – Buvette Gastrotheque New York serves up delicious OJ, and a decadent waffle sandwich. The waffle sandwich is a sunnyside egg, bacon topped with melting gruyere and maple syrup between a zesty citrus buttermilk waffle. It may not look pretty but it tastes damn good!

A late lunch at ABC Kitchen Union Square – The ABC Kitchen by Chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten serves fresh seasonal and sustainable fare. The combinations are interesting and quite hearty, if you’re budgeting I’d recommend the three course lunch prix fixe at $32. The surprising yet tasty combination of sweet roast beets on slightly tart homemade yoghurt is a great starter. The signature salted caramel sundae is not to be missed, it’s a full mouthgasm!
