Eleanor Ozich hits the Big Apple
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.
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.
