Food writer and blog­ger Eleanor Ozich jour­neys to New York with a list of out­stand­ing eater­ies to visit

Afew months ago, my hus­band, Valentin, and I went on a whirl­wind trip to New York. It was com­pletely last minute and tick­ets were booked only a hand­ful of days be­fore­hand. Valentin was trav­el­ling for busi­ness and luck­ily I man­aged to con­vince our fam­ily to look af­ter our three kids for the week so I could go along for the trip. I was very much in need of a get­away and it was the per­fect way to es­cape the cold weather in New Zealand and recharge cre­atively.

City cul­ture

Each time I travel to a new coun­try, I feel in­flu­enced in many dif­fer­ent ways, but what I love most about New York is its dis­tinct ex­pres­sion of food, fash­ion and cul­ture. Although loud and some­what chaotic, I love the vi­brant buzz of NYC and can’t help feel­ing in­spired by it all. Ev­ery cor­ner you turn, there seems to be some­thing un­ex­pected hap­pen­ing; it’s both ex­cit­ing and in­trigu­ing at the same time.
