New York

My first time in New York and it will certainly not be the last time. I fell in love with this city. The beautiful buildings, the nice people, great food, you name it, this city has everything you need.  In this blog I show you a number of restaurants and cocktail bars that you really should try…

We went to a health food restaurant called the Dig Inn. Here you can put together your own salad. This can be for example with quinoa or kale and after that you can choose vegetables and protein. I went for the cauliflower and steak.  This is highly recommended if you want to eat quickly and healthily.

Brunch spots 

When I was in New York, I went to two great places to have brunch. The first place called Sadelle’s.

Upon entering you imagine yourself in a typical New York lunch place, as you have seen in the movies and my favorite series ‘Sexy And The City’!

The lunch menu was full of delicious sweet treats, such as  blueberry pancakes and the famous sticky buns, but there was also plenty of choice for the healthy people among us! For example, they have different salads and fruit. The Grapefruit is one of my favorites! I do not know how they did it, but it tasted sweet, like a dessert

Keep in mind that you must make a reservation. Otherwise it can happen that there is no place available or that you have to wait a very long time before they have a table ready for you.


My second place is also highly recommended! You can sit inside and outside at Lafayette Grand Cafe & Bakery. I was happy to sit outside, but inside it is certainly not annoying to take place. It is a beautiful room with lots of space to sit.

There is also plenty of choice at this lunch place. They have fresh fruit salads, fresh croissants and different types of egg dishes.

This place is known for its delicious eggs with truffles. Sounds great doesn’t it? Of course I ordered them and I am very glad that I did. They are amazing!






There are so many different restaurants in New York. I have put down my 3 favorites below.


The first evening I went to eat at a Japanese restaurant called Bondst. The restaurant is located on the Bond street, hence this appropriate name. At Bondst you can eat delicious sushi and other Japanese delicacies.


This restaurant is a really nice place and has a great menu. The steak is definitely recommended.

After dinner, you can have a drink downstairs in the club and of course you can also dance there, for the party animals among us..

Simon & the whale 

I have saved the best for last. I really liked this restaurant! If you are going to eat here, it is a good idea to order all kinds of different dishes and to share them with each other, so that you can taste as much as possible.

Especially the creamy corn with scallop and bacon. I have never had this combination, but I will definitely make this dish at home. This is something you just want to eat more often.


In addition to good food, you also need great spots to have a cocktail!


This rooftop bar is located on the 22nd floor and has a beautiful view over the city.

Here you can enjoy a drink and a snack during the day or in the evening. Let’s be honest who doesn’t want to have such a beautiful view?file (56)

The Polynesian

This place has the craziest and strongest cocktails. The glasses fit perfectly! (see photo) The service is also nice and crazy, the people who work there are in for a joke and help to find the perfect cocktail for you! If you fancy a nice strong and crazy cocktail, you should definitely go here.
