Like many of my food loving/obsessed friends, I plan my travels with highly food-centric agendas. A long weekend spent in New York City was the equivalent of pastrami on rye, black and white cookie, and cheesecake for iconic classics. Threw in a handful of favourite purveyors including BKLYN Larder, Chelsea Market, and Smorgasburg for souvenir shopping. Added a few key destinations like Eleven Madison Park, Sakagura, Shake Shack, and Dominique Ansel Bakery for proper sit-down meals. I was surprised M and I still managed to squeeze in a 100k race and sightseeing at The High Line, Times Square, DUMBO, Soho, Lower East Side, Bryant Park, and Staten Island Ferry.
Good thing we walked everywhere to burn off all those calories.
