IFB’s Guide to New York

Whether it's your first time or you are a repeat visitor, New York City is a fashion bloggers playground. So much to see and eat! Luckily, we've got a list of places that you must visit. No, seriously. Like, if you didn't visit them, you would be making a major IFB faux pas. This is serious business, guys.

 

Eat:

Meatball Shop: In these cold winter days, nothing is more satisfying than a plate full of meatballs. Honestly, they might be the greatest things since sliced bread. You can get them anyway you want with any sauce you want. And we must not forget about their ice cream sandwiches. The Lower East Side location is always packed so be prepared to wait or head to the West Village location.

ABC Kitchen: This farm-to-table restaurant not only boasts a delicious menu but serves it in the warmest, natural atmosphere. Vegetables take the main stage here and are beautifully prepared. It's the kind of food that makes you want to cook and discover new ways to prepare the heartiest of vegetables. That is, if you actually had a functioning kitchen…

Torrisi: Now this is Italian food at its finest. Unpretentious, filling, and full of heart, Torrisi's prix fixe menu will make you drool. Literally. From the pasta to the cheese to the bread, it is one of my favorite places to eat in the city.

Peels: It's the most important meal of the day so fill up properly with Peels. This cozy restaurant serves a killer breakfast including an array of pastries, savory egg dishes and the best buttermilk biscuits in town. I'm not exaggerating. You must get the buttermilk biscuit while here, and if you are feeling daring, load up your biscuit with avocado, ham or cheese.

Abraco: Coffee is a part of New York's culture and this is the spot I go to when I want an extra fine cup of jo. The lattes, espressos and cappuccinos are practically an art form here and don't forget to load up on their Olive Oil cake. Sweet, moist, with slight tang.

Explore:

High Line Park: yes, it is freezing but a walk through the High Line Park is totally worth it. Gorgeous greenery, a crystal clear view, and some peace and quiet. What more could you want?

New Museum: After that jaunt through the park, warm up with a trip to the New Museum located on the Bowery. Unlike other museums, this one features highly interactive and vibrant exhibitions. Videos, paintings, sculptures. You will get your fill of inspiration after an afternoon here!

Paris Theater: Step back in time and catch a movie at the renowned Paris Theatre. Romantic and very tres chic, you'll think you are in Paris, not New York! The theatre is currently showing the much-buzzed-about film “The Artist.”

Brooklyn Bridge: It may sound cliche but sometimes, walking across the Brooklyn Bridge is the highlight of this girl's day. With breathtaking views and a reasonable 20-minute walk, it's a definite must while in New York. Plus, you can explore Brooklyn Heights and the Brooklyn Bridge Promenade once you get to the other side. A fun area with lots of camera opportunities!

    Got several more to add, as a native New Yorker:

    – Either the Met, MoMA or Guggenheim Museum. Although I’m an art student and obsessed over anything art-related, those are very inspiring museums.

    – The Strands have the strangest and most extensive collection of books you will ever see.

    Definitely agree with all the restaurants though. Yum~
