New York City is an exciting place for foodies to live in as you can indulge in tastes from every corner of the globe. Furthermore, most of these fabulous restaurants deliver to your home. So, when you first arrive at your new apartment in the city, ordering in food delivery gives you more time to focus on unpacking and getting settled. 

 

NYC foodie areas

NYC’s best neighborhoods are ideal for exploring the diverse food scene. Keep in mind though, each dining district has some distinctive flavors. In the East Village, you’ll find old-school eateries such as Katz’s Deli, alongside fine dining options like Hearth. While the West Village neighborhood is home to many beloved, traditional bistros. For the trendiest new restaurants in town, head over to SoHo. Blueground offers fully-furnished, equipped and serviced apartments in some of the world's most sought after cities. For more informal dining or grab-and-go grub, try out one of the many street food spots around the city. There are street food festivals, such as the 9th Avenue Food Festival. Or smaller food trucks like Korilla, who show up in areas around Brooklyn and Midtown Manhattan. In addition, there are always interesting pop-up restaurants and supper clubs to look out for, like Mr. Jones in the West Village.

 

Eating at home

The around-the-clock NYC lifestyle can make dining in at home the best way to unwind after a long day. Rustling up a meal at your own place can also be relaxing. Whichever culinary skills you have, it’s significantly easier to cook a delicious and filling meal at home when you stay in an apartment with a fully-equipped kitchen.
