Drinks from Pio Pio in NYCOur food mission in New York City was simple: try as many restaurants as humanly possible in a three day period, with the focus being on pizza, bagels, street food, and ice cream/gelato.  A perfect first entry into the Angie Eats…. series.

Trying to fit this much food in a small amount of time was no easy task and required much research before the trip (and much, much more than three meals a day). Since we were staying in Greenwich Village, most of our research centered around the West Village and the East Village.  But since we like to explore, restaurants from all over New York are featured.

Below is a map of all the restaurants that we investigated and considered visiting prior to our trip. While we did not make it to all of the restaurants featured in the list before, this was our starting point when exploring the New York food scene.  The restaurants and their color coding follows.

  1. oh my gosh – that is a lot of restaurants to try! Did you end up eating out for Breakfast, lunch and dinner! Love it when I dont have to cook ~ would love to live in Thailand where the food is so way cheaper than Australia 🙂

  2. So glad you liked Grom, one of my favorite gelato places! They also have branches in midtown near Time Warner Center and on the Upper West Side on Broadway and 76th, which was their first shop here.

  4. Wow, looks like a solid eating effort. Hope you didn’t get to that uncomfortable ‘over-full’ feeling.
