NYC Restaurant Diaries: Part 3

Wow it's been almost a while since I've made one of these! You know, I take photos of the food at every single restaurant I go to SOLELY for the purpose of this blog series. With that being said, I've built up quite a dense camera roll in the past half year and narrowed the food photo selections down to the very best for this post. 

1. Old Rose

You know I love a good Instagrammable restaurant. This one in the West Village did not fail me. Old Rose, located in the Jane Hotel, is not only gorgeous, but also has genuinely good contemporary italian food. The breakfast pizza (which is served all day) was So. Dang. Good. 

2. Sunday in Brooklyn

Sunday in Brooklyn is also very Instagrammable. If Urban Outfitters created a restaurant, this would be it. I was really impressed with the food too. Aside from the delicious malted pancakes, the brunch menu was rather healthy. Also pictured is the avocado toast and cheddar scramble. I plan on coming back to experience the dinner menu soon. 

3. Lil Frankie's 

I honestly debated putting this restaurant in because the photo I have just doesn't sell it. I decided I HAD to include it because this place is just so good. Lil Frankie's is a spot in the East Village that has no pretty atmosphere, just really incredible italian food. While this photo doesn't look like anything special, it features the Spaghetti Limone entrĂ©e, which is one of the best pasta dishes I've ever had. 

4. Jacob's Pickles


I'm really honored to have this southern spot in my hood, the Upper West Side. Upon arrival, you can tell how popular and famous this restaurant is based on how packed it is and the long wait. However, every second of the wait will be worth it when you taste how incredible the food is. I've been to Jacob's Pickles twice now (would come back more often if calories weren't a thing) and ordered the Chicken and Pancakes and then the Chicken Bacon, Egg & Cheese. Both times I had the fried pickles as an app since this is something the restaurant is famous for. 

5. The Butcher's Daughter 

You may have heard of this one already because it's a super popular brunch spot among millennials. The Butcher's Daughter has two locations downtown and they are quaint/cute and serve delicious food. If you want a healthy brunch and/or avocados, this is Aussie spot is a great place to go. Shown here is the Smashed Avocado Toast Benedict.

6. Refinery Rooftop Bar

This is a great spot to go if you are looking to experience an NYC rooftop. If you ask to sit outside, you will have a great view of the Empire State Building! You can still sit "outside" in the cold months because they cover the outside with a transparent tent that preserves the great view. I went to Refinery Rooftop Bar for a work lunch and opted for a Kale salad with salmon added on. 


  1. My enthusiasm for my predecessors started quite a long while back when I began looking into my family tree, which drove me to pondering their lives. I needed to figure out how to do what they did. most comfortable dress shoes ladies
