These are absolute gastronomic meccas that you can't miss while enjoying the eternal glory that is New York City. This Upper West Side location also has the added bonus of having enough seating for up to twenty people while sitting right next to the legendary Stumptown Coffee (it's seriously one of the best coffee shops in New York). But beware, as you may have already noticed, I'm a cheeky New Yorker, so expect everything that appears on my blog to be peppered with my peculiar sense of humor (I've already warned you). It may be one of the most “Instagram-friendly” restaurants in New York, but the food is only as good as the all-pink decor.
Com Tam Ninh Kieu has a more homey version of Southeast Asian cuisine in an area that was once an enclave of the Vietnamese population of New York.

I mean, not only do they serve a delicious version of the classic New York slice, but it's also a great place to go and enjoy an authentic New York pizza experience (it's also in Manhattan, so you won't have to go to Brooklyn). In addition, they have several locations across the city, with outposts in NoMad, East Village, Midtown and Lincoln Square, so it's now easier than ever to take your brunch fix and enjoy some of the best places to eat in New York, no matter where in the city you are.
