    Hey Arianna, Thanks for opting our views on best restaurant in NYC. I have been living for years in NY. I have visited almost all the restaurants in NY but except Esquireny none of the restaurant inspired me. The most important thing I liked about Esquireny is their bar and lounge. They served some lip smacking dishes, bar appetizers, salads and most importantly best sushi in city.

    Hello Arianna! To start the day I love to have breakfast at Le Pain Quotidien, pretty close to Park Central Hotel and just a few steps away from Central Park South. This restaurant offers different and exquisite breakfast dishes beside the coffee and the croissant that are also a must. Another restaurant that I recommend is Maison, a brassiere style located in Midtown (1700 Broadway / corner of 53rd & 7th). Excellent food (the spaghetti is delicious), nice environment and prices are very affordable. Every time I travel to NYC I visit this restaurant (especially for dinner). The Irish Pub is an excellent choice to have a beer, or a glass of wine. The food is also delicious.

    Park Central HotelMy family, my friends and myself enjoy these places every time we go. Hope this help! Saludos!!Maison

    Xi'an Famous Foods

    I highly recommend a small chain of local made-to-order Chinese spots called Xi'an Famous Foods. They make very unique ethnic Chinese dishes unlike anything I've had before and were featured on No Reservations with Anthony Bourdain. My favorite dish is the cold skin noodles and any of their ice cold floral tea drinks.

    A hodgepodge of ideas from different places in town.

    1. The Chelsea Market Baskets has a bunch of different eats, really whatever you are looking for. Good Thai food, some lobster rolls if that's your thing, cheeses and meats if you want to take the food over to the High Line Park for a picnic.

    2. Tacos - Try Taqueria Lower East Side, reasonable prices, fun ambiance, great food -- and no fajitas. Also taco fun at La Esquina and the crowded (don't go on a weekend) Cafe Habana for the best elote.

    3. Drinks and great sandwiches/salads -- try the black kale Caesar salad (photo attached) at Black Tree, on Orchard Street.

    4. If you like oysters, the East Village The Mermaid Inn's $1/oyster happy hour provides good people watching and eating.

    5. Japanese okonomyaki is the BEST and available at Otafuku x Medetai on e. 9th street.

    6. As recommended elsewhere, great smoky meat and veg skewers at Yakitori Totto, but be sure to get there just as they open else it's a long wait.

    La Mela. There is nothing special about the outside of this restaurant. There really isn't anything special about the inside either. However, they have the best Italian food I've ever had, that wasn't made by my Nonna, of course. I have been there half a dozen times and I still have never seen a menu. Which, made me a little nervous the first time I was there, because I am an extremely picky eater. But, I was more than pleasantly surprised. They bring out big plates of everything for the whole party to share and each dish is better than the last. So, If you're looking for something fancy, with waiters in tuxes and white linen tablecloths, this isn't the place. But if you are truly in search of great food and are in the mood for Italian and a little mystery and intrigue, then I highly, highly recommend this place.La Mela

    Some of my absolute favorite restaurants in New York are Cafe Henri for breakfast (amazing French toast, omelets, fresh fruit, etc.), Don Giovanni for some really great pizza and Artichoke Basille's Pizza & Brewery (we got a HUGE calzone and it was the best we'd ever had).

    All of these restaurants are on Facebook too!

    The Flat Iron District is one of my favorite neighborhoods in NYC. In it, you'll find a ton of great restaurants such as: ABC Kitchen, Eataly, Gramercy Tavern, Maialino and Craftbar.

    Try Perla in the Village and The Spotted Pig, too.

    Hey! I'm a New Yorker, I actually live in Tel Aviv now, but was just back in New York for a few days. My favorite place to eat, hands down is Westville. There are about 4 locations now, very fresh ingredients. You can get a plate of "market sides", 4 of them, and feel full and satisfied after, and it is very healthy.

    Westville: http://www.westvillenyc.com/

    I also tried Dimes in Chinatown while I was in town and had a delicious acai bowl.

    Dimes: http://dimesnyc.com/

    If you want more of an undergeound local dinner club scene, there is this website that sets you up with locals to eat in their homes called EatWith.

    Here is the link: www.eatwith.com

    Hope this helps!
