Hi Guys, in preparation for my 30th Birthday trip to the USA, during my research, I found hundreds of restaurants that I wanted to try, I narrowed these down to just over 50 and decided to create a NYC Food Map! Simply to make life easier for my travels, on my strolls around Manhattan when feeling hungry I could see what choices were around.
I hope this NYC Food Map helps on your future travels I’ve put in bold the restaurants I visited and will insert links to the related trip reports, I’ve also put bold text and a few notes on some highly recommended eats from trusted friends, who either live in NYC or visit the city often.
