NYC top eats 

1000x568 4 2
Tangram’s in Queens has something for every palate.

Here’s a tasty bite of some of the treats you’ll find within the program: 

  • Tatiana Foodies worldwide know of Kwame Onwuachi and his Manhattan gem, Tatiana. Inspired by his childhood in the Bronx, Tatiana serves Afro-Caribbean eats. It’s been the number one restaurant on the New York Times’ list of 100 Best Restaurants for two years running. Obvs this means 1) it’s amazing, and 2) book your clients in far in advance!  
  • Eavesdrop No visit to NYC is complete without a visit to Brooklyn where the city’s nightlight is bouncing back with new nightclubs, including Eavesdrop in Brooklyn’s Greenpoint neighbourhood. Inspired to mimic hanging out in a friend’s apartment with top tunes and bites, Eavesdrop pairs Japanese small bites with craft cocktails and natural wines. It’s a vibe!  
  • Tangram With so many choices across NYC, it can be challenging to get your group to agree on what to eat. Cue Tangram in Queens, a food court with a drool-worthy collection of international feasts to suit every kind of diner. Many menu items have become Instagram sensations, like the Korean hot dogs, squid ink lobster rolls, and bubble teas.

Contento is causing a commotion (in the best way) on the NYC foodie scene.
  • Contento Voted by the NY Times as one of the city’s 2021 top 10 new restaurants, Contento has become the gold standard for inclusive dining, with a wheelchair-accessible layout throughout. Add in the Peruvian-inspired menu with popular items like octopus with black chimichurri and cauliflower gazpacho or beautifully seared tuna steak with Peruvian corn succotash, and you can see why it’s become a prime Manhattan dining location.  
  • NYC Bagel Tours You already know bagels are a top foodie item to score when in NYC, but how about a deeper dive for your food-curious clients? Discover New York’s iconic bagel scene with NYC Bagel Tours, including bagel-making classes, bagel walking tours, and more. Their award-winning instructors and guides love sharing their fave spots (and samples) of the city’s best bagels and its accompanying history.
