The best New York City restaurants

There are nearly 25,000 restaurants in New York City! Your trip can turn into the gourmet feast.

Spend some time before the trip browsing restaurant options in New York on such websites as Zagat New York and Yelp. Use Opentable to book your restaurant table in New York online in advance. Some popular restaurants, like Keens steakhouse, are often booked weeks in advance. Isn’t it great to start traveling (albeit virtually) before you take off for the airport?

You can take a culinary journey around the world during one trip to NYC. It is fun to compare the experience of visiting a restaurant in Rome with one of those 2,500 Italian restaurants in Manhattan. Or to compare the oysters you’ve tried in France with the Blue Point oysters you can have in one of NYC’s many oyster bars. In any case, this is a unique opportunity to get so many flavors at once, and still never have to have the same thing twice!
