The New RICE TO RICHES
last time i was in NY i went to "rice to riches" a cool rice pudding bar, are there any new stuff like that i should try this time?
pinkberry has become huge, although its a chain so you may have been already. Otherwise, ronnyfields milk bar has milkshakes and theres max brenner which is a chocolate bar.
My wife and I often seek out the NYC places that specialize in a particular food item. Here are a few we have hit:
- The Peanut Butter restaurant (Greenwich Village) - good for lunch
- Smacks - specializes in mac and cheese
- Pommes Frites - great fries
You can also try for brunch on the upper west side Popovers - everything served in a popover.
http://www.chikalicious.com/ Is fun if you're coming from far away. also around the corner is http://www.blackhoundny.com/ BlackHound around the corner has very cute little things to pick up and munch on but no seating. Their savory snacks (cheese crackers, etc.) are pretty good.
and ditto on Sundaes and Cones. Black sesame=yum.
Rice to Riches is still a fave of mine though! and Beard Papa's...always a classic.
