What kind of food is there in NYC？
New York is world-famous for its world-wide cuisine. With people from all over the world living here, you can find just about every kind of food you’re looking for. Students from Bluedata are lucky to be right in the center of Manhattan where food options are endless. Of course, you can find Starbucks and McDonalds (or Shake Shack if you’re feeling adventurous), but many people choose to eat more authentic food in the neighborhood, such as at Essen, which is located right across the street from Bluedata, or Chef Yu, which serves a variety of Asian dishes right around the corner.
Just a few blocks downtown at 32nd Street, you’ll find Korea-Town, where you can find tons of Korean BBQ restaurants, and in the East Village, between St. Mark’s Place and 10th Street, you can find “Little Tokyo” with all kinds of Japanese ramen shops, sushi bars, and teahouses. NYC is also home to Little Italy, located in lower Manhattan. Who doesn’t love a delicious bowl of pasta or real-deal pizza! Little Italy is also right next to Chinatown which draws in tourists and foodies from all over the world who want to indulge in dim sum, dumplings, and pork buns.
Additionally, NYC is home to 72 Michelin-starred restaurants, some of the word’s most iconic food (think New York Cheesecake!), and 24-hour food delivery no matter where you live or what you’re craving.
Grocery shopping is especially easy in NYC because there are so many grocery stores (Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s, D’Agostino’s, Food Emporium, Best Market, etc…), and you can even have groceries delivered to your apartment through the Amazon Fresh app, or try meal plan delivery services such as Hello Fresh or Home Chef.
