New York City | Getting There

Traveling to soho...

To make your trip easier, I’d suggest flying into Newark (EWR). It’s in New Jersey, but you’ll be able to hop in the AirTrain and be in Manhattan in no time. In my opinion it’s a lot easier than navigating Laguardia and JFK and the ride on the train is short, clean and under $15. Once you arrive in Manhattan, you can hop in an Uber, Lyft or take a taxi to your hotel. It’s always good to keep in mind that most hotels will allow you to drop your luggage at the front desk even if it isn’t time for check in. I always opt for an early morning flight and do this. There are two reasons I do this! The first is because flights can get delayed or you can get bumped to a later flight. In most cases, you’ll be able to get on a flight that same day. If your flight is a late night flight, you might get bumped into the next day. The second reason is because I like to hit the ground running! Especially on trips to a big city. There is a lot to see and do, and if you only have three days you’ll want to pack in as much as possible.

Manhattan | Which District?

The districts For this guide


If you’re looking for luxury and style, then Soho New York is the place for you. This trendy neighborhood is home to some of the best hotels, shops and restaurants in the city, and it’s the perfect place to stay if you want to experience the best of what New York has to offer. From upscale boutiques to world-class dining, Soho has something for everyone. And if you’re looking for a place to stay, there are plenty of luxury hotels to choose from. The area gets its name from its location “South of Houston Street,” and it is one of the most popular tourist destinations in New York. Visitors come from all over the world to shop at luxury stores, eat at world-famous restaurants, and see the latest art exhibits. SoHo is also home to many celebrities, who often add to the neighborhood’s electric atmosphere. Whether you’re looking for a unique shopping experience, a delicious meal, or a night out on the town, SoHo is sure to have something for you.


The Gramercy District of New York is a quaint and charming neighborhood that exudes old-world charm. The picturesque streets are lined with elegant brownstones, and the leafy parks offer a welcome respite from the hustle and bustle of the city. Despite its central location, the Gramercy District feels like a world apart, and it’s no wonder that it’s often been called “a little slice of heaven.” Whether you’re looking for a peaceful place to relax or an enchanting setting for a romantic stroll, the Gramercy District is a great place to go. It’s just northeast of SoHo (beyond NoHo and a delightful stop if you want to go a bit out of the way. A fun fact, especially if you are a fan of “Inventing Anna“- you must check out the Fotografiska Museum. It is the same building Anna nearly leased to create a posh social club at, though now it’s a fantastic history of photography museum.


If you’re looking for a fascinating, historic district to explore on your next trip to New York, be sure to add the Flatiron District to your itinerary. This unique neighborhood is home to a variety of landmarks and attractions, including the Flatiron Building, the New York Life Insurance Building, and the MetLife Tower. In addition, the district is home to a number of excellent restaurants, cafes, and shops. Whether you’re interested in architecture or simply want to enjoy some good food and shopping, the Flatiron District is definitely worth a visit. One of my favorite restaurants is located just beyond the Flatiron building and there is a beautiful park nearby as well. Makes for the perfect spot to stroll.


The NoMad District of New York is a vibrant and lively neighborhood that has something to offer everyone. From its world-class restaurants and hotels to its trendy shops and art galleries, NoMad has something for everyone. And with its convenient location just north of Madison Square Park, NoMad is easy to get to and explore. I’ve found that hotels tend to be a better price here, so if you are willing to walk a bit more it’s a great option! You’ll find the same level of luxury without the high price point.

ROoftop Oasis On the 14th Floor of Eataly

If you’re looking for a rooftop dining experience with an incredible view, look no further than Serra at Eataly. Located on the rooftop of the popular Italian food hall, Serra offers stunning views of the cityscape. Whether you’re watching the sun set over the city or enjoying a cocktail under the stars, Serra is the perfect spot to unwind after a long day exploring. The moment you step into the restaurant you’ll see why it’s such a magical place to visit. The elevator is tucked away in Eataly and if you have trouble finding it just ask someone. You’ll head up an elevator, then go up a few steps to a flower adorned waiting area. Just beyond this space is the most beautiful greenhouse-esque space with giant farmhouse tables. It feels like you’re in a secret garden that is conveniently open to the city. The food was incredibly fresh and bright, and I found it easy to find plenty of vegetarian options. We ordered a lot to try and every single dish was fantastic! Typically a salad wouldn’t be at the top of my must get list, but the “del marcato” is one I keeping dreaming of. Definitely make a reservation in advance. They open their reservations 30 days in advance.

What To Order

At Serra

Otto (It’s bread and it’s deliciously worth it!)

Del Mercato (The salad of my dreams)

Branzino Grigliato

Tagliata Di Manzo

Gibson Estivo (A super refreshing cocktail)




Felix Roasting Co. + Ralph's Coffee

As soon as we landed and got luggage situated at the hotel, we headed to one of the best coffee shops in New York – Felix Coffee Roasting Co. This coffee shop is known for its delicious coffee and stunning interior. When you first walk in, you’ll notice the beautiful French-inspired decor. The walls are adorned with a hand painted tile mural, and each detail is meant to pull you one level deeper into their universe.

No visit to New York is complete without a stop at Ralph’s coffee. This iconic coffee shop has been serving up delicious brews since 2014, and it remains one of the most popular spots to check out.

Dante | Hands Down My Favorite Spot

On Macdougal street

Dante is a New York institution, and its modern Italian fare has been drawing fans for years. Located in the West Village, Dante boasts an impressive menu that features both classic and contemporary dishes. Standouts include the shishito peppers, perfect for sharing, and the warm almonds, which make a great starter. For something a little heartier, the pasta dishes are all excellent, and the meat options are also very tempting. Whatever you order, be sure to wash it down with one of Dante’s refreshing drinks. The seville spritz was a personal favorite. Whether you’re looking for a romantic night out or a casual meal with friends, Dante is sure to please.

Book your reservation ahead of time, and make note of which location you are heading to. We went to the location on MacDougal Street, but their spot on Hudson Street in the West Village has the iconic arched doorway you’ve probable seen in pictures. Either way, the service was fantastic and they made us feel like we were heading home. Everyone from the manager to the bartenders were friendly and made the whole experience unforgettable.

As seen on "Inventing Anna"

Le CouCou is a charming French restaurant located in the heart of downtown. The dining room has an intimate feel, with dark wood floors and exposed brick walls. The menu features classic French dishes such as coq au vin and cassoulet, as well as a selection of creative daily specials. The wine list is extensive and includes both familiar and lesser-known varietals. The service is professional and attentive, without being obtrusive. Just a heads up, this restaurant is quite expensive, and requires a reservation well in advance. If you are wanting a fine dining experience, this is a wonderful option. In short, Le CouCou is the perfect place for a romantic evening out or a special celebration. Bon appetit!

This happens to be the spot heavily featured on the show “Inventing Anna”. It’s entertaining but so wild. Inventing Anna is the story of a con artist who poses as a wealthy heiress in order to scam her way through New York’s high society. Along the way, Anna becomes entangled in a web of lies and deception, and it becomes clear that her true identity is even more complicated than she initially let on. If you haven’t seen it, I would highly recommend it!

Female Chef driven with exquisite food

Lead chef Marie-Aude Rose moved to New York City from her native France to open La Mercerie, and the restaurant has quickly become one of the most buzzed-about new dining spots in town. The menu features classic French fare with a modern twist, and the dishes are beautifully presented and absolutely delicious. The service is professional and attentive, and the dining room is elegant yet understated. Overall, La Mercerie is an exceptional restaurant that is well worth a visit. For lunch, I like to start with a cappuccino and croissant, then enjoy one of their salads. Take your time at dinner and enjoy the ambience. It’s such a beautiful location and everything I’ve tried there is fantastic.

When it comes to French food, Bobo is one of the best places to go in New York. Located in the West Village, Bobo offers a casual yet upscale dining experience. The menu features classic French dishes with a modern twist, and the skilled chefs are able to create truly memorable meals. The restaurant has a cozy and inviting atmosphere, and I can’t stop thinking about the crispy artichokes. They came with a bearnaise  sauce that I wanted to lick off the plate! My friends and I have been trying to recreate this delicious dish since I came home, but we haven’t been able to. So grab a glass of wine and enjoy each and every course. They were all a delight.
