If you are staying in manhattan lombardi's for pizza located on spring st. Be advised no slices available only pies. If your in Brooklyn its Di Fara avenue J. The Q train to avenue J station. Also Paulie Gee's and Motorino , Totonno's and Grimaldi's all in Brooklyn. Grimaldi's is located on the Brooklyn side of the Brooklyn Bridge on a nice day you can walk over the bridge from Manhattan.

If you want seafood in Manhattan try Tracks located inside Penn. station , not much ambiance but very reasonable prices and an excellent raw bar. this is not touristy it is all commuters waiting for trains, thus the name TRACKS.

Everything else is just too much to mention. If you have anything very specific you can message me.....Good luck

Paulie Gee's & Speedy Romeo for pizza (the best!). Brooklyn Bowl, Freehold, & Pianos are all great for a fun night out plus live music. Flex Mussels - for well, mussels (and donuts). Top of the Standard hotel (Le Bain) for stunning views of Manhattan - it's more relaxed during, with great cocktails and at night it turns into a party. Babbo - a NYC classic, always a winner. Check out the site the infatuation for restaurant reviews...I always trust them. Have fun!!

In the LES check out the 169 Bar (dive bar), ForgtMeNot (cocktails and bar food), Les Enfant de Boheme, and North Dumpling. If you are down there Saturday afternoons, check out The Hester Street fair. I also love the Mermaid Inn (seafood) on 2nd Ave in the East Village. For live music, Arlene's Grocery, Mercury Lounge and Bowery Ballroom. For a little fancier Le District has awesome food and outdoor space with a view of NY harbor. And one of my favorite areas in the city is Stone Street downtown near Wall Street. There are a number of bars and restaurants that all have outside seating on Stone Street. My favorite there is The Growler. They have the best french dip sandwich I have ever had. Couple that with the best Dark and Stormy in town, makes for a perfect late afternoon stop. Plus they have a killer list of private label and small batch beers, with a couple of cocktails on tap as well. And if you're feeling really adventurous, walk a few blocks from The Growler to the Staten Island ferry for a free round trip around NY harbor. You can't beat the view on a gorgeous day, and the beers are $3.00.

Try the dimsum in China town. I like Buddha bodai. You should try New York speakeasy bars for sure - bathtub him, please don't tell, employees only, beauty and Essex are good options. If you like Ramen, try totto , ippudo or hidechan
