Our New York City List

Artie's - Upper West Side Deli

After deciding to take our trip around this world, Heather and I started making a list of things we wanted to do in New York before leaving.  The general idea formed after reading the Best of NYC edition of the Village Voice and realizing there was a long list of restaurants, bars, activities, shows, and sights we had never had the chance to check out.

It’s been fun accumulating these new experiences in our own backyard.  Unfortunately, many of the items involved devouring delicious, but not-so-healthy food.  Hopefully the backpacking lifestyle will allow us to shed a few of the pounds we’ve picked up over the last few months.

  • Guggenheim Friday Nights
  • The Cloisters
  • Magnolia Cupcakes
  • Peter Luger
  • Lottery – Wicked
  • Russian Tea Room
  • Central Park Boathouse
  • Mercadito Cantina (all you can eat tacos)
  • Brick Lane Curry House
  • Katz Deli
  • Black Mountain Wine House – 415 Union St
  • Union Hall – bocce, library, comics
  • Cream Puffs – Beard Papa
  • Gelato – L’Arte de Gelato
  • Fish Harbour – 290 Hudson
  • Big Gay Ice Cream Truck – Twitter
  • Wo Hop
  • 10 Downing – New American
  • Tartine – almond sugar croissant
  • City Winery – 155 Varick (live music)
  • Buddha Bodai
  • Doughnut Plant – LES
  • Max Minas Ice Cream – Flushing
  • Baked – Williamsburg, Brooklyn
  • Soy & Sake
  • Le Veau d’Or
With less than one week left to go, it’s unlikely we’ll be able to cross the remaining items off our list, so this list will be pared down and tackled again when we return!
