Today we want to share with you our second part of our series "Culinary New York". In our little New York Guide we share with you our culinary experiences that we have made in New York and show you restaurants that you absolutely have to visit on your next trip to New York.
Our second part is all about dinner. Have you been looking for a cozy restaurant where you can reflect on a great but busy day in New York? Here you can find our top 3 best restaurants in New York:
- Keens Steakhouse
- The Grange
- The Loeb Boathouse
Anyone visiting the United States should definitely not miss a visit to an American steakhouse. Of course there is indefinite number of them in NY. So which one should you visit? One of the well known is Keens Steakhouse. Not only they offer very delicious and high quality prepared steaks, but the atmosphere is also something special. The walls are covered with wood and are fully decorated with old pictures, signs and lots of items. The most extraordinary: On the ceiling there are hanging about 50,000 old tobacco pipes!
We had the porterhouse steak for two and a side dish of fried mushrooms and boiled beans. The steak was really greatly fried and very tender. You can taste the good quality of the meat. The side dishes were also delicious. For dessert we tried American Lime Pie and NY Cheesecake. Delicious! So definitely leave some space for dessert. Overall, a great evening with very good food, great atmosphere and very nice service. Tip: definitely book in advance!
2. The Grange
The Grange was an insider tip of our landlady. The restaurant is located in Harlem, a neighborhood in Manhattan, which is becoming more and more trendy. The Grange is very stylish and comfortable and is therefore worth a visit. The Grange's menu offers a variety of fancy dishes, all prepared with top-quality ingredients. So you will find, besides very good made burgers and Mac & Cheese, for example also Octupus with chorizo or Tahini cauliflower steak.
You should also try the cocktails. They are just as exceptional and high quality as the food. Food top! Drinks delicious! Atmosphere unique! The Grange is definitely a must when exploring Harlem.
3. The Loeb Boathouse
Have you been looking for a romantic restaurant where you can leave a full day of sightseeing and the bustling tourist resorts of New York behind you? Then you should pay a visit to the Loeb Boathouse. The Loeb Boathouse has been part of Central Park for 150 years and is located on the lake called "The Lake". If you come to New York in the summer, you should definitely book a place for outside. The terrace is just amazing. With a direct view of the lake and a gorgeous lighting in the evening, it is wonderfully romantic and invites you to linger after dinner with a bottle of wine.
Speaking of food, the food is delicious and for its very high quality and and the location even quite reasonably priced (with drinks about $ 50 per person). Our tip: Stop by one to two hours before dinner and borrow a rowboat. Enjoy the romantic sunset on the lake before heading off to a delicious dinner.
