The New York City Foodie Guide
Oh New York, home to way-too-many gastronomic pleasures—whether you want to learn how to make canapé, or just eat your heart out, we’ve rounded up our favorite foodie destinations.
The Bowery Hotel335 Bowery, East Village | 212.505.9100
Ideally located where NoHo, the East Village, and Nolita meet, this hotel's bright bedrooms and contrastingly cavernous bar attracts the rockstar set—for scene, but also for comfort. The rooms feature classic New York apartment touches like marble bathtubs and hardwood floors—combined with high-end linens and plush velvety touches, this makes for an ideal stay. Downstairs, Gemma is a good spot for a drink (it’s also a good dinner option for bigger groups), though the hotel is so well-situated to some of the city’s best restaurants, consider taking your meals out.
The NoMad Hotel1170 Broadway, NoMad | 212.896.1500
Situated next to the newly-opened Maison Kitsuné (and just blocks from the Ace), this section of NYC is arguably never anyone's first choice—though it's actually incredibly convenient if you want to strike both uptown and down. The rooms here are hushed, dimly-lit, and opulent—while small, they get the job done. (The onsite restaurant is excellent, too.)
The Standard East Village25 Cooper Square, East Village | 212.475.5700
Like all of Andre Balasz’ hotels, The Standard East Village, a tall glass building looming above Cooper Square, is a haven for travelers as much as it is a local, neighborhood establishment. With Narcissa booked to the brim night and day, it’s become a central fixture of the East Village scene. Meanwhile, upstairs, hotel guests enjoy a little respite with rooms that boast picture window views, high above the city streets.
