I’ve been living in NYC for 10 years. I know many amazing restaurants. Never in my life have I had such a bad experience in a NYC restaurant. Our cook was so rude and nasty. She was so bothered to be taking our orders, she...More

Food was fresh and delicious, and price was very reasonable. There is no waiter service, you just stand in line and place your order, mainly for pasta dishes, and they make it right in front of you! You also are given the option of customizing...More

I had never been to Vapiano before, so had to be told how this place works. It is basically college dormitory food in a bad college dormitory setting. The noise level was ear-splitting: it was so loud, from the sound system, and the way the...More

Forget the food, the experience is tasty in itself. So you walk in and they hand you a card, and you see stations where to get food and drinks. Everything is charged to the card and you pay at the end. That´s it. Interesting concept,...More

Greenwich Village
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was
here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter
culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for
its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to
get a feel for this diverse and energetic
neighbourhood. You’ll find NYU students, street
performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the
fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess.
