Everyone loves some serious #foodporn, and so do we. Charge your phone and get ready to snap some good shots for Instagram and Snapchat or simply get ready for the best breakfast in town. We tried them all and here are our favourite spots in Greenpoint, Soho and West Village.
Italian Tapas Restaurant? We are up for that! Especially if it is as good as Aria. This small place in West Village is always booked out until the last table. All the pasta is homemade and the salads are delicious. However the best thing about tapas is the fact you don’t have to decide on one dish, you order many! The one small downside of this place is the acoustics – not really the place for a date but great for dinner with your best friend. Oh, and don’t forget check out their wine menu, it’s impressive.
Location: 117 Perry St, West Village
Freemans is definitely on top of the game. It is a fantastic spot and a true hidden gem in Chinatown. Located in a small, dark alley, there is no way of stumbling across it – you have to know where to go to. A beautiful old town house with different rooms and styles. It is cosy and feels very French/British. The menu is French-American and almost too mouth-watering to make a choice. Make sure you try their hot artichoke dip with crisp bread. It has been on the menu for about 3 years now and one thing’s for sure: it is the most delicious starter ever. Great for sharing!

Café Mogador most definitely serves the best baba ghanoush in New York! If you appreciate delicious, fresh cooked Moroccan and Mediterranean specialities, this will be heaven to you. The place has been run by the same family for over 30 years and is located in the heart of lovely Williamsburg. Open for brunch (also very good), lunch and dinner.
Location: 133 Wythe Ave, Williamsburg
