In New York you can taste the world. Cuisines from every country dot the city, and in the most unexpected places, like small corners, grand hotels, and even train stations. For those who prefer a liquid diet, New York has a history of inventing epic drink experiences, from classic cocktails to secret whiskey libraries. Eataly and Dean & Deluca markets have long dominated the food shopping scene, but the Spanish are taking over with Mercado, Little Spain, a project by three Spanish culinary legends, José Andrés , Albert Adrià and Ferran Adrià .
Eating in New York means juicy steak and dripping pizza to some, and bagels and lox with diner coffee to others. A city of extremes, you can find a $2000 cocktail or use an app to find all the $1 dishes available for delivery in all of New York. However you envision your ultimate New York dining experience one thing is for sure: everything is possible.
Sustainability extends to the bar. Besides the war on plastic straws, the mindset of New York’s environmentally conscious bartenders means drink menus full of sustainably produced spirits,
non-alcoholic drink specialities, and unusual mixers like tea are making a splash.
There’s little space in the Big Apple and now New York’s community mindfulness has led to innovative ways to eat and drink socially. Luxury and professional co-working and co-living spaces have redefined single living, dining, and drinking, like the Assemblage which has Elixir bars in every location.
