    01 Carroll Place

    Carroll Place on Bleecker Street has an exciting concept, as it’s both a gastropub and wine bar where you can enjoy Italian-inspired food. It’s one of our favorite spots when we go for brunch in New York. The atmosphere is relaxed, the vibe is always good and the food is delicious!

    Our favorites have been the pizza with truffles and the Pasta Vongole. The fact that the pizza oven is wood fired gives the pizzas a taste like a pizza should have! By the way, next time try the Carroll Place Burger with Gorgonzola. This one looked mega delicious too!

    My tip: if you want to go for brunch, be sure to reserve a table in advance!

    02 Manousheh Bleecker

    Manousheh Bleecker is a Lebanese restaurant in Greenwich Village on Bleecker Street (unsurprisingly).   They are known for their delicious flatbreads, which you can eat either savory or sweet. I especially like the Flatbread with zaatar and sesame seeds and the Kafka with lamb and hummus. Definitely try the bowls too, they are super delicious, fresh and look good.

    And if you’re more in the mood for something sweet, you should try the homemade flatbread with Nutella or Halawa (which is a sweet sesame paste)! 

    The restaurant itself is rather small and there are only a few seats. If you have to wait for a free seat, I can promise you: it’s worth the wait!

    03 Villa Mosconi

    If you’re looking for an Italian restaurant with real vintage charm, you have to go to Villa Mosconi! This restaurant has been around for over 40 years and is still run by the same family.

    Villa Mosconi restaurant offers authentic Italian food in a lovely ambiance and it’s family friendly and welcoming. No matter what (homemade) pasta you order, it’s guaranteed to be delicious. Another highlight for us was the Veal Milanese. And the best part? The prices are really reasonable!

    For me, Villa Mosconi is one of the best Italian restaurants in New York, because we were not disappointed during any of our visits!

    04 Dante NYC

    When it comes to the best Negroni in town, there is hardly a way around Dante NYC. They are an institution in New York and have been serving their Negroni since 1915 (it’s an Italian restaurant with a small bar). You find it at the corner of Greenwich Village, SoHo and Hudson Square – here we are super-often when we are on the road in New York.

    05 One if by Land, Two if by Sea

    One if by Land, Two if by Sea has the reputation to be the city’s most romantic restaurant and has also been voted the 5th most romantic restaurant in the world – for good reasons. The former carriage house, built in 1767, does not only stand out due to its charming architecture but also due to its rich history. The property was once owned by the United States’ first Attorney General Aaron Burr

    After the duel in which he shot Alexander Hamilton, he lost the property and it was later repurposed until it became the restaurant we love today. The decor is simply beautiful. On top of that, One if by Land, Two if by Sea features several fireplaces, a piano, and a garden. As you may imagine, the food is absolutely amazing, too. The restaurant is said to be the most popular restaurant in New York for engagements, too.
