Jenn’s adventures in NYC: Restaurants and Hotels

My favorite restaurants in NYC:

Bubby’s Pie Company in TriBeCa. I had dinner here more times than any other restaurant. By the last time, the waitress was trying to remember what my “usual” drink was. Delicious food, chill atmosphere, and great commitment to sustainable and/or local food. [My Yelp review]

East of Eighth in Chelsea. Very chill, good atmosphere, good service, terrific menu. The second time I came here, I ate in the garden out back. It wasn’t breathtakingly beautiful, but it was a nice change to be able to eat in a quiet outdoor patio in the heart of Manhattan. [My Yelp review]

The Long Room in Midtown. The food here is quite good for a pub. Pretty good service, and of course a good whiskey/whisky selection. [My Yelp review]

Rattle N Hum in Midtown. Actually, the food here isn’t that great, but it is a must-stop for beer snobs. Dave was in heaven when I brought him here.

My hotel, as seen from 36th & 6th, with the Empire State Building in the backgroundMy favorite hotel in Manhattan is the Hilton Garden Inn on W 35th Street (Herald Square). I did several weeks of multi-night stay here. Extremely convenient location, wonderful staff, great views from the upper floors, and an all-around good value.

A close second, though I only stayed there once, is the Hilton Garden Inn in TriBeCa. Nice rooms, and literally right above the subway station.

I’m a big fan of the Hilton Garden Inn because of the mini-fridge and microwave in the room. Makes it easier to just have breakfast in my room instead of having to go out.
