Ice cream season is here and when it comes to chilled thrills, New York City is at the very forefront. So far, 2017 has seen fish waffles, mochi toppings, and flavors nobody would have dreamt of a couple of years back. Here are some of the new must-tries as well as a few old favorites, of course all tried and tested.
If you were in Zurich Saturday morning a couple of weeks ago, you might have seen me scouring the narrow streets of Altstadt for a place to have breakfast. It turned out to be more of a challenge than what I had expected, because most of the cafes I encountered, were more like bars, with booze, not food, taking center stage.
It was my first time to celebrate 4th of July in New York City, and I was very excited about it. A couple of years ago, I was in Las Vegas for the 4th of July, but I missed the fireworks, as I was busy eating pizza and drinking beer. I didn’t want that to happen again, especially since the Macy’s fireworks display in NYC is the biggest in the country, and this year, it was supposed to be bigger than ever.
Visiting Zurich was a spontaneous whim, primarily triggered by a need to get out of Dubai. At this time of the year, Dubai is excruciatingly hot, and I was desperate to get my share of European summer. One of my friends, who I haven’t seen for ages, lives in Zurich, so when she asked, if I wanted to come by, it was all the reason I needed to pack my bags.
After Con Artist Collective, we went over to Fig. 19 for cocktails. I really should start writing down the cocktails I’m having, because I always forget. One of them had grated chocolate sprinkled on top, and all of them were very good, but that’s all I can tell you.
It was my friend Alex, who told me about an art show at the Con Artist Collective on Ludlow Street a couple of weeks ago. At the event, you could purchase postcard-sized original pieces from the members of the artist collective, all priced at $20.
Here are my 5 favorite restaurants in New York right now. These are the places I immediately think of, when friends ask me where to go for dinner or lunch. The list is updated every month, or whenever I feel there’s a need for adjustments.
I don’t think there’s any better time to visit Brooklyn Bridge than right after sunrise. The light is amazing, and you can fully take in the view without the crowds. As the sun peeks over the horizon, the bridge is shrouded in this beautiful golden shimmer, making any Instagram filters redundant.
