If we ask our guests about what they enjoyed most from their New York City visit, many will say “the buildings” or “the museums.” However, based on what we hear them talking about, many of our guests will always remember the food. From a bagel with lox to the best pizza in the United States, New York City is a foodie’s dream.
Located in Midtown, the small Koreatown area features an array of restaurants serving Korean barbecue and other favorites. The heart of this area is a section known as K-Town, located on West 32nd Street between Fifth Avenue and Sixth Avenue. It features various restaurants, some of which are open 24/7, so you can satisfy your craving for bibimbap. The establishments on Korea Way are stacked on top of each other and resemble Seoul’s bright and crowded landscapes.
For some fantastic Greek food, head over to the Astoria neighborhood of Queens. It’s famous for authentic Greek cuisine at restaurants like Taverna Kyclades that you can enjoy in the quieter suburbs. In addition to Greek food, Astoria is also a hot spot for Colombian, Lebanese, and Pakistani food, giving you a rich range of options to go outside your comfort zone and find some new favorites. For any of our Arlo SoHo Hotel guest that are headed out to Queens, we always recommend they take the time to visit a local place for lunch or dinner.
While you might laugh a little at the hipster culture that pervades Williamsburg in Brooklyn, there’s no denying the neighborhood offers some great food. There are awesome steakhouses, great Moroccan food, and everything in between. Check out Pies-n-Thighs for some ridiculous chicken and waffles, or go to Pomp and Circumstance, a small place offering some of the best Mediterranean food you’ll ever eat.
