My husband and I have done nothing but talk about travel since Covid started – we cant be the only ones right? We have been thinking more and more about returning to New York to experience the architecture, people and of course – the food.

New York is a restaurant city. Its neighborhood is full of Japanese, Korean, Thai, Albanian restaurants where you will find endless food debate options. It does not matter whether you are living in a small apartment or just in a room. Fine dining always gives space to the residents to gather outside their homes. 

So, you can have anything from pizza, pasta, ramen, sushi to pastrami if you are convenient with the big hall restaurant. Each restaurant has breathtaking views and adds a bounty of cityscape itself. It is full of skyscrapers views, Brooklyn Bridge, Central part, newly gentrified neighborhoods and unaccountably perfect for a family gathering, date, functions, or whatever might be the preference. 

Thus where to begin if I want to range top 5 restaurants in New York from low key to fine dining? Well, there is no clue, right? However, in this guide, I have accommodated the top 5 restaurants in New York to help you define what it means to eat in New York City with life and love.
