A Food Story does New York

August 9, 2014

We didn’t go to New York with the intention of blogging (other than the Michelin starred restaurants that is). But when we thought about how much research we had done before we left and how many awesome places we discovered (most through recommendations) we decided we should write about them. And so… a year after […]

Deciding which restaurants – and in particular which Michelin starred restaurants – to go to in New York was one of the hardest things I had to do (#firstworldproblems). We decided we *had* to dine at Per Se or Eleven Madison Park (yes, sadly we had to choose between the two) but selecting other restaurants […]
