Mint mojito, sweet with vanilla soy!
Great music! The atmosphere is really cool too. Don't expect a soundtrack - the performers are front and center. Talking is kept to a minimum during sets.
One order of lemon ricotta pancakes with a side of bacon is going to make both of my weekend brunches so good!
The original spot for some West Village wandering - the rest are bigger and all serve delicious food!
On a nice day, skip the line at the sit down place and go two doors down to the take-out storefront. If you have time to spare - definitely worth the wait.
I've only had the pastries - but they're so good my dad used to bring them back to us in Mass when he was working here!
Great speakeasy-feel cocktail lounge. You'll get a great drink from lab-coat clad mixologists.
Fun excuse to get down to Governors Island - plus lots of people go all out with their costumes!
You've got to go to the original Shake Shack location in the park! Like the NYC In-and-Out, but I'm partial to the crinkle cut fries.
Just an adorable neighborhood! Lots of cute brownstones, restaurants, and shops.
I always try and stop here for a smoothie/juice. There's a wall of celebrities sighted with Liquiteria juices - maybe you'll get lucky and see your own!
A great destination to wander through the West Village toward.
While on the High Line, make sure to find the People's Pops truck! There are so many great flavor combinations.
This converted raised rail beds is beautifully done and a good stroll. It's a great place to take a lunch and get some sun.
A variety of yummy food offerings and just fun place to walk through. Often there are samples sales, craft booths, or other pop-ups stores to check out too.
A great variety of stands selling mostly raw ingredients from the local area but some delicious baked good. Plus there are often wine and hard cider tastings from upstate.
Take advantage of the Met while you're living there. That way you don't have to feel pressure to see it all at once because the donation only policy makes it super affordable.
This macaron place is straight from Paris and well worth the line. It's a great starting or end point for a stroll down Madison Ave (walk toward 60th St) to do some designer widow shopping.
Great place to escape the city streets and get some sun. Bring a blanket and book/magazine to do some reading, but don't forget to people watch!
