What to do in New York
When in New York there are so many more things to do apart from watching the US Open Tennis Championship. Here are some recommendations and ideas on how to spend your days in New York.
The first day in the city should start with strolling through famous Midtown and beautiful Central Park. Why not have a classic American Burger for lunch at excellent Shake Shack. After Lunch continue to walk around Manhattan and take in the sights and sounds of the incredible city. To end the day in a perfect way go for dinner at ABC Kitchen and try the excellent roast carrot and avocado salad. Afterwards enjoy some delicious cocktails at Employees Only.
First day at the US Open. After a thrilling day of tennis grab a delicious pastrami sandwich at Katz Delicatessen on your way home. It is true New York experience and should not be missed. The pastrami and corned beef are well worth their ‘Best in New York’ tag.
After spending another exciting Day at the US Open, how about finishing the day with a great dining experience at Gramercy Tavern? It is a classic restaurant with an outstanding menu. Enjoy the easygoing Tavern in the front on a walk-in-basis or we can reserve a more formal dining experience in the dining room at the back for you.
The last day of your US Open experience should end with a great eating and drinking occasion in Brooklyn, dinner at Maison Premiere. The Oyster House and cocktail den has a New Orleans-styled setting with clear Paris influences and comes highly recommended.
After starting the day with some excellent pastries from the Sullivan Street Bakery in Manhattan’s Hell’s Kitchen neighbourhood, make your way to the top of the Empire State Building. Enjoy the great view before enjoying a walk along the High Line. Stop for lunch at the award-winning Maialino for an outstanding pasta dish. Then take the subway all the way down to lower Manhattan to see the Statue of Liberty by taking a ride on the Staten Island Ferry. For dinner we can recommend enjoying some classic French cuisine dishes at Le Coucou. Afterwards try the great cocktails at the Dead Rabbit.
