My kiwi friend who lives in NYC, has been raving about how much, being half Italian, I was going to love this place. Si Si, d’accordo!. My jaw just dropped every second once inside this foodie hall. I didn’t know which way to turn, as I didn’t want to miss a thing. Everything looked and smelled so delicious, and I could have eaten and drunk my way through the entire shop; from chocolates to cheeses, meats, fish, vegetables, wines plus there is amazing kitchenware to purchase. I felt like Willy Wonka.
A friend reserved a table for us for brunch here recently, on a Saturday in NYC. They are open for lunch and dinner and specialise in brunch. It’s on 676 Sixth Ave in the Chelsea-FlatIron district, and is an authentic Belgian brasserie (if you’ve been to Europe), with a nice warm feel and antique wood and furniture.
I quickly needed to find a place to eat that was close to the musical ‘Mowtown’, in New York City and came across Trattoria Tre Colori on 254th W 47th Street (between Broadway and 8th Ave). Tre Colori represents the three colours of the Italian flag.
This new, boutique hotel on West 38th Street, NYC was amazing. http://archerhotel.com/new-york/. Its elegance and art was superb as is the location. We were greeted with consistent, outstanding high standard of friendly service from every staff member, every day.
Living in Brooklyn, Wellington and being Italian, I’m so glad I booked ‘A slice of Brooklyn bus tour” starting in Manhattan, NYC. It was highly rated on tripadvisor as one of the best tours, and I can see why. Book online www.asliceofbrooklyn.com.
I ate at this amazing foodie place today called Sunac on 6th Ave. You can eat in or take out and buy fruit, smoothies, juices, chopped fresh coconut, pomegranate seeds, nuts, and even roasted kale chips. The filter coffee was divine.
