The first weekend I’ve spent in New York, ever, I had absolutely no clue. It was Januar 2017, a super snowy weekend, and I’ve walked through the city, Chinatown for example. On my way back from their I stumbeled in “Little Cupcake Bakeshop” – which turned out to be the only cafe I tried without planning to go there, haha. Seriously.

When I was back in my room the same day, I started to do a little research. Which it was, at the beginning, but turned out to become one of the most profound researches I’ve done so far. I’m planning to offer this as a download soon, but till then, feel free to take a look at THE LIST below, the ultimative food to do list. It’s filled with of dishes, restaurants, food innovations, signature dishes and food stalls to eat resp. visit, based on clips from Insider New York, Insider Food, Buzzfeed, Secret NYC, Thrillist and local Instagrammers – to name just a few.
