NYC Bucket List: Summer Food Edition

New York City is known for its delicious food options, so why not take advantage of it? There are so many delectable choices out there and we’ve compiled a list of stops you need to definitely make in New York City this summer.

Luke’s Lobster

207 E. 43rd St, New York, NY

Can’t make it out to Maine this summer? You don’t need to leave the city to eat all of the good food that comes with travelling. Head over to Luke’s Lobster to try their infamous Lobster Roll for a taste of Maine. Try and tell us that this Lobster Roll isn’t the ideal summer meal. It’s even better with a lemonade and a side of chips.

Ramen Burger at Berg’n

899 Bergen St, Brooklyn, NY 11238 Can’t seem to pick what you want to eat for lunch? Can’t choose between a few cuisine options? Why not fuse the two and go for this iconic Ramen Burger? It gives you the best of Japanese and American food all at once.

Shake Shack

E.23rd St. New York, NY

If you aren’t as intrigued by the Ramen Burger as we are, you can keep it simple with a burger and fries from Shake Shack. No New York summer is complete without a stop at Shake Shack. If nothing else, go just to try out their custard or concretes! They even have dog snacks for your four legged friends! Don’t worry, the lines move fast.

Dominique Ansel Bakery

189 Spring St, New York, NY 10012 Dominique Ansel Bakery is home to the magnificent and elusive cronut. Even though you might not be able to catch a cronut before they sell out, you should still stop by the bakery for some sweet treats like their cookie shots!

Xi’an Famous Foods

14 E. 34th St, New York, NY 10016 Have a craving for noodles and need a new noodle go-to? Xi’an Famous Foods is it! Xi’an famous foods all started in a small stand in a food court in Flushing, Queens. Thanks to their hand-ripped noodles covered in signature, secret spice mixes, and Xi’an “burgers” with housemade flatbread, they have since expanded to a total of nine locations! The Spicy & Tingly Beef Hand-Ripped Noodles are our favorite noodle dish with just the right amount of spice.



2 Rivington St, New York, NY 10002

Need a summer cool down? Morgenstern’s is the perfect ice cream stop with refreshing flavors and an old fashioned ice cream shop feel. The Green Tea Pistachio flavor is a must have on our list!
