New York City is called the Big Apple because everyone wants to and can take a bite out of it. Sometimes, they mean that literally since there are countless establishments in the city with food that is to die for. Here are just some examples of the amazing restaurants you can find here.


For some authentic and avant-garde Japanese cooking, head out to Sakagura. Aside from the mouth-watering goodness of sushi, the restaurant has one of the most extensive sake (Japanese rice wine) collections in the country. It is a bit difficult to find though. Look for it in midtown.

La Esquina
