As most of you know, I have been settling into my FiDi apartment and so far, so good! Did I want to live in Brooklyn? Yes. Was it impossible to find an apartment in this market? Double yes. So by a miracle, one of our followers offered to sublet her apartment to me in a gorgeous building downtown. To my surprise, I have been absolutely LOVING living in the city. I’ve always lived in Brooklyn so it’s been really, really fun to to explore a new neighborhood and feel like I am having a fully new experience. But guess who is more excited than me about being back in New York? My mother. Because she gets to come visit more often! She is coming this weekend and I put my feelers out on IG Stories about the best restaurants in this area and got SO many amazing suggestions so I wanted to share them with you all! I haven’t gone to them all yet but wanted a place where you all could search through for yourselves!
“Classic” downtown tavern feel. The holiday decorations are absolutely stunning and they have a piano bar upstairs that we will definitaly be going to!
We are heading here for cocktails this weekend to sit under the 9 story atrium. Make sure to make a reservation!
I went here on a date and it was lovely. Think old school cocktail bar with an Irish flare. The hospitality was also amazing!
One of the oldest restaurants in the country (I believe) but it hasn’t reopened yet since the pandemic! They noted on their website they should be opening soon, so I will keep you all updated!
Technically this is in Tribeca but I heard it is really good!
Quintessential modern Manhattan vibes! From the team at Eleven Madison Park so book far in advance!
Absolutely gorgeous views of New Jersey and Statue of Liberty! If you can get here for sunset, it is truly magical!
Of course this instagram-wrothy farm to table restaurant has made its’ way to Manhattan! I have been to the locations in Malibu and Miami and looking forward to celeb spotting at this location too!
