Hey guys hey! I get a lot of questions on my favorite NYC spots - so here are some that come to mind!
The food is great, but really the ambiance of this place is the best! It's decorated floor to ceiling with plants - and the food is delicious! My fave thing to get a plate of sides - smoked salmon, avocado & bacon.
This pizza chain is my absolute favorite! It has whole wheat thin crust - and the toppings are amazingggg. Plus! It's pretty cheap! AND if you buy a bottle of wine (which are pretty inexpensive) you get a free pizza (!!). (That was a 21-year old+ comment friends.) The mushroom pizza on whole wheat thin crust is my go-to.
I know I know - this is not a NYC-only restaurant haha. In terms of fast food, this is one of my faves! Zak and I go at least once a month - if you get their calendar in December it comes with a special VIP card to get a free food every month. My fave item to get is their grilled nuggets - which are pretty much impossible to find at any other fast food chain!
You guys know I love my protein & veggies - so The Meatball Shop is one of my fave go-tos. I like to get the "Kitchen Sink" where you can choose which meatballs and sauce you prefer. There are a lot of different meatball options - beef, pork, chicken, and veggie. The veggie sides change pretty frequently. My fave sauce is the Parmesan Cream.
Did you guys know you can get cucumber-wrapped (instead of rice) sushi now at a lot of sushi restaurants?? Sometimes it's called "naruto". You can easily cut a lot of carbs and cals this way!
I only want to spend money on a salad if I know it's going to be FILLING! Two of my fave places to go are SweetGreen - I like the Kale Caesar which is low-carb and topped with "Parmesan crisps" (just baked cheese!) instead of croutons. At Fields Good Chicken - I love the Cobb salad!
These bagels are the chewiest, most scrumptious bagels I've found in NYC! I love the whole-wheat everything bagels with the low-calorie smoked salmon cream cheese!
Need a treat? Chloe's frozen fruit "soft serve" is the best feel-good treat for winter and summer.
