New York Food – Part One

You are not just in New York to run a marathon, you are going to want to fuel up on some delicious meals! There are some amazing restaurants in New York and this most recent trip over, we found some great ones! We used an app called OpenTable to book most of them as some of them are so popular you have to book way in advance. Here is part one of my favourites, stay tuned for part two!

  • Don’t Tell Mama 343 W 46th St – A piano bar where you can have a meal and then go next door and watch people playing and singing, the bar staff get up and sing too! I don’t really like that kind of music but it was a great atmosphere and experience and the food was pretty good. The whole road is called Restaurant Row so a great place to find somewhere to eat!
  • Butter 70 W 45th St – One of my favourite restaurants, apparently featured on Gossip Girls. Amazing food, great atmosphere, close to Times Square.
  • Chelsea Markets – Great to look through and lots of nice places to eat.
  • Gramercy Tavern 42 E 20th St – Had an amazing lunch here. They have bar food or restaurant. The restaurant is amazing, great food and you may spot some celebs in there – we saw Yoko Ono and some guy from Heroes!
  • The River Cafe 1 Water St, Brooklyn – Very expensive set 3 course menu, mostly paying for the view, which was amazing as it is right next to the Brooklyn Bridge with perfect city views, but the staff are a bit up themselves and looked down on us because of the way we dressed. We didn’t know we had to dress up so were just in jeans and jumpers. They made my husband and Dad put on a dinner jacket!! Don’t recommend unless you want to frock up and have a huge bill!
  • Burke and Wills 226 W 79th St – Australian bar/restaurant with great food, if you are missing home!
  • Prohibition 503 Columbus Ave – A pub that plays live music near to above restaurant, we went for drink there after.

I’m on the web!

So I have finally got round to creating my website! It’s something I have been meaning to do for a very long time, but little things kept getting in the way, like my wedding! Recently, I have found the time to learn how to use WordPress, so here it is! Thanks to the people who helped me set this up, you know who you are and this would not be here without you! There have been lots of changes recently for me and the business. I am working mostly from home now which is where I enjoy being, I do two half days a week at a clinic in the valley and have spent this year also working with the Brisbane Lions which has been fun. It is nice to have a bit of variety in my week and be able to do odd sub-contracting work for sporting teams. I’ll try and post interesting and informative things on here, who knows if anyone will read my blogs but comment if you have and make me feel like all the swearing and hating my computer was worth it! 🙂
