After traveling to Concord, NH for the week, coming back to NYC for the weekend means you get to eat real food. A few weeks ago, each day in Concord gave me a craving for something specific in NYC. That weekend, I decided to execute on those cravings. 1 dinner completed at 4 different restaurants. Yes, for 1 dinner I took my friends around New York.
Stop 1: Tortaria
This Mexican restaurant, walking distance from Union Square is usually busy during evenings. You find your own table, which often includes standing and peeking your neck around for 15 minutes. Their Guac and spicy fries are why I was there:
Stop 2: Max Brenner
It’s a restaurant for when you desire chocolate. ’nuff said. And I wanted some hot chocolate. They use melted chocolate to make their hot chocolate. No syrup, no powder, real chocolate.
Stop 3: Thelewala
Spicy street food, it’s what we Indians live for. Thelewala is in the NYU party area of Bleecker and McDougal. Thelewala isn’t necessarily the best place for street food, neither is it better than Kati Roll Company (right across the street), but they’re quick, hassle-free for chaat:
Stop 4: Forbidden Fruit
If you ask me, this is a gem for dessert. It’s simple, it’s quick, and delicious. Fresh fruit covered with chocolate and most of all, cheap.
4 restaurants, 1 dinner and sporting friends, I’d say a well-spent evening in NYC.
