Eatsa is a fast-food chain that serves fresh vegetarian salads and quinoa bowls. What’s the difference between Eatsa and another chain that serves salads? Well, Eatsa seems to come straight from The Jetsons – remember them?
One of the great pleasures of being in Manhattan is being able to walk for hours with no particular goal, especially in some areas like Chinatown, where the streets are no longer denominated by street numbers and one can easily get lost. I love to stroll through this neighborhood and discover the Chinese grocery stores, fish markets, and local shops that populate the area. Chinatown in NYC is quite exotic!

Dons Bogam is an interesting combination of Korean BBQ and wine bar in the middle of Koreatown. The restaurant has a very modern and chic décor where you can sample a wide range of Korean foods. The façade is made of glass rectangles framed with metallic supports, allowing you to see the atmosphere inside the restaurant.
Amazing 66 is the first Chinese restaurant I went to in Chinatown ten years ago. Since then it has become our family Chinese restaurant.
This little restaurant is a very charming spot to enjoy a brunch with family on Sundays. I have also been there for dinner and I know lunch is available as well. A few blocks from Columbia University, Flat Top is always busy with young and less young people.
Have I already mentioned that I love NYC? Well I do, and what I love is this kind of place that you can only find in Manhattan.
I discovered Aurora Soho four years ago and I still love it! In the middle of Soho New York, the narrow façade is typical of the Soho style, with its metallic stairs leading up to the door. At the entrance there is the bar and a few tables, and at the back of the restaurant there is a bigger room with more tables.
