the best things I ever ate. [NYC trip]

August 17th, 2011 by | comments

My trip to New York went by way too quickly, as vacations typically do, but I had a wonderful time with my mom, my best friend and her mom. We spent the week shopping until we dropped, exploring the streets and most importantly, eating our way through the city.

Below are some photos of the best food I ate on the trip. We chose some of the restaurants/dishes primarily because Food Network featured them on The Best Thing I Ever Ate–the homemade barbecue chips with blue cheese and bacon dip from Blue Smoke, and the french onion soup dumplings from The Stanton Social (I’m still dreaming about these).

Unfortunately, I didn’t get to check off all the restaurants on my list, but I’ll save them for my next visit. Thank you so much, Kay from Pure Complex, for sending me your suggestions!
