5 Places to Eat During NYC Restaurant Week

Hi friends!

Well, it’s around 4PM and as my good friend Winnie the Pooh says, “I have a rumbly in my tumbly.”

NYC Restaurant Week is quickly approaching, a time for locals and out-of-towners alike to experience 3-course meals for an affordable price.

  • $24.07 for Lunch
  • $35.00 for Dinner

Here are our office’s top picks for where to eat:

1. Mesa Grill – Because who doesn’t want to catch a glimpse of Bobby Flay?

2. Blue Water Grill – A former bank transformed into a seafood restaurant. Neat!

3. Fig & Olive – For those who dream about dipping hearty bread into 3 various types of olive oil. Yum.

4. Blue Smoke – Mouth watering BBQ and live jazz. I’m sold!

5. Spice Market – The vibe and decor here are amazing. Now if only my tiny Upper East Side apartment would have the same feeling…

How New Yorkers Stick to New Year’s Resolutions

If you’re anything like myself, January 1st is a time to pick up the pieces and go full force on a healthy living spree. Slowly but surely, New York is shedding its holiday glam and festive decorations– a subtle sign for natives and out of towners alike that life unfortunately has to keep trucking along.

That’s right New Yorkers, it’s time to trade in the stretchy pants and crumbly sugar cookies for running shoes and a protein packed bowl of oatmeal!

As a native Floridian, this cold weather is just a little bit intimidating for my tank top and flip-flop past. If you’re in the same boat as myself, fear not my friends! NYC has plenty of options to get you in tip-top shape during the chilly winter months.

Here are 4 of our favorite ways that New Yorkers stick to their healthy New Year’s resolutions:

1. Post a list on the side of your fridge in your tiny 1 bedroom apartment

List your top 5 goals and post them on your refrigerator door for the entire year. It’s a great reminder of everything you want to accomplish. Someone here once told me, “Spend your free time in Central Park. It’s a lot better than being cooped up in your tiny apartment.” These wise words are posted on my fridge!

2. Jog around the Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Reservoir in Central Park.

Go at sunset for an incredible view of the Manhattan Skyline including the Hearst Tower and CNN building.  The entire loop is 1.58 miles with a dirt running path that is good on the knees. The reservoir is rated as 4.5 stars on Yelp so we promise it’s legit!

3. Chinese Takeout No More

That tiny Chinese restaurant may be conveniently placed at the end of the block, but that doesn’t mean you must have them on speed dial. Plan a simple yet hearty meal such as my favorite Creamy White Chicken Chili with a side of baked Kale Chips.

4. Trade in your iPod for a good book on the subway

One of my favorite resolutions this year is to read more books. Thanks to my 30 minute commute during the work week, there is definitely enough time in the day to get lost in an amazing book. Get a NYC Public Library card, store a book in your bag to read on the train, and even look into joining a book club. Meetup.com is a great resource for finding book clubs in your neighborhood.
