Now we come to the conclusion of my Where to Eat in New York Series. Hopefully these recommendations will help you plan your upcoming trip to New York city. There is a little bit of everything in these recommendations.
I hope you’ve enjoyed my series on What to Eat in New York. Here is post one and two in case you missed them. I thoroughly enjoyed eating my way through New York City and I have so many more places on my list that I’m sure another visit will be in the works soon. But don’t fret, I have a post on what to do in New York coming up and how to plan your trip so we’re not done with this trip yet.
Wafes and Dinges
Natural History Museum
Central Park West & West 81st St
2 West 81st Street, NY 10024
I am a waffle lover and Wafels and Dinges is one I have been following for a while. And let me tell you, I can see what the hype is about. The WMD (Nutella, strawberry and banana) waffle was incredible. We ate pretty much the entire thing before heading into the Museum of Natural History.

Another place we found via Yelp was Tanner Smith’s. This was a little brunch spot close to our hotel. I mentioned this restaurant in a previous post as it was the inspiration for me to finally try a Dutch Baby Pancake.
My sister had the Eggs Benedict and loved the dish. She especially enjoyed the Chipotle Mayonnaise.
I had the Skillet Pancake and thoroughly enjoyed it.
Rock Center Cafe
Rockefeller Center, 20 W 50th St, New York, NY 10020
A little treat we found after going to Top of the Rock was the Rock Center Cafe. My sister and I were cold and hungry and stopped into this restaurant the minute we saw it. It was one of the best places because we got to sit right by the window that looks out on the Rockefeller Ice Rink. Our food was very delicious too so it was an unexpected treat that wasn’t even on our radar.
Whenever I see French Toast on the menu, I always tend to get it. And I am so glad I did. Just look at that plate of deliciousness. They even gave us free hot chocolate that was so good on that blistery morning.
1515 Broadway, New York, NY 10019
My sister and I took in a show Friday night and went to Junior’s Cheesecake before the show. We got there just in time and only had a 5 minute wait. Luckily for us, they partnered with Black Tap to create this New York Shake which is a strawberry shake topped with a slice of Strawberry Cheesecake.
Because it was Lent we had to get fish for dinner which was ok but not my favorite. It definitely could have used some seasoning. Luckily we had the New York Shake first. Eat dessert first people!
Here are a few honorable mentions that we also tried but had mixed reviews for various reasons:
Joe’s Pizza – this pizza was made famous by the Spider-Man movie. My coworker said I should try it so I did, but after Prince Street Pizza it just didn’t hit the spot. It’s busy though so they’re doing something right.
Bubba Gump – this was the only place close to my hotel that I could think to get seafood for Ash Wednesday. The food was entirely too expensive with the least amount of flavor.
Gray’s Papaya – my sister had to try the hot dogs because of Grey’s Anatomy. Had we had them warm they may have been better.
Angelo’s Pizza – this was around the corner from our hotel and we had a quick dinner here. The pizza was good but with the add-ons being priced separately, it got expensive for one pizza. The calamari was definitely a treat.
I hope these places we tried help you out in your next trip to New York. Let me know if there are any I need to add to my list for my next trip to New York. I still have about 20 places to try.
