Blogher 2012 is IN THE HOUSE, so to my out-of-town blogger friends, please visit one of my favorite food establishments!
Skip the cart, head to Sigmunds Pretzels
While there, check out Downtown Yarns, Fabulous Fanny’s, Economy Candy and Pink Olive.
TOASTED MARSHMALLOW MILKSHAKE!
Head to stand
ASPARAGUS “HOTDOG”! Head to Dogmatic
COMFORT FOOD! Head to Chat n Chew
I always order Smashies and Quintessential Macaroni & Cheese, but heard Thanksgiving on a Roll is pretty delicious too.
CHOCOLATE! Head to Max Brenner for your meal AND dessert.
While in Union Square stop by the Union Square Green Market (look for Emu eggs, so beautiful), Fishs Eddy (for your NYC souvenir plate) & ABC Carpet & Home. If you head north a little ways more you can glance up at the Flat Iron Building and get a custard at the Shake Shack (that’s the b line–the short one!).
PRETZEL CROISSANT! Head to city bakery
The hot chocolate here is like melted candy bars! After you pick up a treat, stop by Books of Wonder and Adorama.
HOMEMADE HO HO! Head to bouchon bakery
They rotate their pastries though, so if they don’t have these in stock, go for the Raspberry Almond Croissant.
BACON WAFFLES AND STRAWBERRY BUTTER! Head to good enough to eat
BEST COOKIE! It’s a toss up between levain bakery & potbelly’s –you decide!
FRESH! ORGANIC! FREE-RANGEY! Head to josie’s
I go for the focaccia and sweet potato spread starter that I eat while I dream about my meal.
CREAM PUFFS! Try Beard Papa’s Cream Puffs
The upper west side is pretty vast, but a few of my favorite stores are Lush, Knitty City, Yarntopia, Century 21 & fresh. You could also check out Lincoln Center while you’re up there.
PIZZA! Try patsy’s or grimaldis
Best location for Patsy’s: 1312 2nd Ave.
Best location for Grimaldi’s: 656 6th Ave. (Don’t go under the Brooklyn Bridge)
BACON BRUNCH? BACON BROWNIE? RASPBERRY LEMONADE? You have to go to Sage Just take the 7 from Times Square 5 stops….going to Queens is cool!
ICE CREAM? Best in the boroughs is at Malu
MACARONI & CHEESE? Head to Macbar in Soho
CUPCAKE! None are worth eating but those made at sprinkles
I prefer banana with dark chocolate frosting, but really, I have not had a cupcake there that isn’t the most delicious thing on the island of Manhattan.
