When people come to visit New York for the first time they come with high expectations. And the city generally doesn’t disappoint. Arriving last night in New York was simply amazing. It’s not my first time, I use to live here but I still feel excited every time I come back. I feel that no matter what you are after you will find it here.
I’m staying at Cassa Hotel in midtown west; it’s very central but away from the crazy crowd. It’s a boutique hotel, so very cute, simple and clean. The only downside is that they closet in the rooms is tiny! not enough to put anything in, but I'll have a special post about the hotel more in details.
Today was all about walking around and eating good food. We started by having a nice lunch at peace food, in the upper Westside. The food is vegan, very healthy and delicious! The place is located on Amsterdam between 82nd and 83rd street. The upper Westside was my old neighbourhood so I know all the little places by heart. They have plenty of places where they have organic choices, fresh juices and much more.
They rest of the day took us to Herald Square for some quick shopping, and I had to of course stop and eat at CHIPOTLE! I know it is so mainstream, but it is absolutely delicious and you need to try it out when you are in NYC. For dinner, the choice fell on Hummus Palace. Very nice middle eastern food, great for sharing!
