I am not a New Yorker, or even a full on frequenter of the city. I say this upfront because there are PLENTY of restaurants I have not tried, discovered, or reviewed yet. This post comes from a recent business week trip and a date weekend spent in the Hell’s Kitchen area of the city. For the work trip, I was lucky enough to be with a group of like-minded food lovers who were excited at the prospect of trying out some of the area’s restaurants. Based on a little research, some friendly recommendations, and pure proximity we scoped out our week’s food conquests. This is a compilation of the best restaurants to encounter while visiting. It will give locals some new inspiration if they haven’t already tried these locations. And for the visitor or tourist, you can try these eateries with confidence that you will be eating something delicious. One quick public service announcement…I apologize for the lack of photos. After long days in our conference I tended to eat first, think later. You’ll just have to trust me!
I recently returned from my 2nd Annual Girls Trip. A group of my girlfriends and I instituted this tradition last year in efforts to set aside time for just us to get away and leave behind the work worries, boyfriends/husbands, families and kids for a moment. You always need quality girl time! Last year it was a weekend in Mystic, Ct (You can find out more about our past adventure up on the blog Small Chick Big Deals which I also contribute to: http://smallchickbigdeals.com/2014/02/04/scbdtravels-happy-sails-to-you-mystic-ct-getaway/ ). This year it was Norwegian Cruise Line’s “Cruise to Nowhere”.
