Food and the City, Part II

Hey everyone! I once wrote about a few places I usually eat. Here's the post I'm talking about: link. Well, a lot has happened since then and here I am to introduce some other places I've been going to quite frequently. New York City is such a delicious place!

Grey Dog

This place has the best sandwiches and the best sweet potato fries I have tasted in Manhattan. It's the place to go for brunch, just make sure you're hungry enough. They have great variety in their menu. They have all kinds of sandwiches, salads, omelets, burgers and homemade deserts. Moreover the atmosphere there is pretty cool. I would say it feels like you're about to do some surfing in California, even though I've never surfed and I've never been in California neither!

The place is very close to Union Square. The address is 90 University Place. For more information check out their website:


This is the sweetest of the three suggestions I'm bringing today. I don't go there a lot because it's at the Upper East Side, making it quite far from my daily journey, and because I would end up having trouble to fit in my jeans after a few meals there. I only had an actual meal there once, because the best thing at Serendipity are the deserts. In fact, I usually make a full meal out of their selection of ice-creams and cheesecakes, don't judge. Try the Forbidden Broadway... and then let me know what you think. It has vanilla ice cream, brownie, hot chocolate, cream... and can't remember what else. See it in the picture below. I recommend it for at least 2 people. Impossible for one single person, I believe.

I suggest going there early to write down your name on the waiting list (about 30 minutes or an hour in weekends, but totally worth it.) It's located on 60th Street between 2nd and 3rd avenues. For more information visit:

Piccolo Café

Finally here's my latest discovery. It's really convenient for Berkeley, since it's just around the corner. It's a very cute Italian cafe. The first thing I liked was the place, it looks cosy and reminded me of cafes around that part of Europe. Moreover, they have items with Nutella in their menu, which is a huge plus! Their coffee is actually great (yeah, American coffee is something Europeans don't like too much.) I've also tried some pasta and it was great as well. If you're around, you should definitely check it out for a quick coffee, snack or actual dinner.

It's located at 238 Madison Avenue (right between 37th and 38th streets.) Check it out at their website:

See you soon!
