Every week I try to visit some new venues and tell you about the best ones. So where has Josh been this week?
Restaurant of the week
Last night we went and had some tasty Thai!
Thaimee Table is a delightful and fast little Thai spot in the East Village serving up tasty treats. It's great for big groups and couples-popping-out-because-you-wanted-to-see-the-Incredibles-2-but-it-was-sold-out-yesterday.
Recommendations: Pad See Ew & the Green Curry
Bar of the week
Pretty close to the restaurant above is an equally cool bar (that we went to before we tried to go see the Incredibles 2 and ended up at Thaimee Table)!
Bowery Road is described as “a neighborhood American restaurant in Union Square” which sums it up nicely. It's friendly, the staff are great, and the happy hour from 4-7 is good considering how central the place is! Sit outside and watch the world go by with a wine.
Where to watch the World Cup Live
I've written a whole post about where to watch every single FIFA World Cup Final LIVE in the East Village. Free drinks, raising money for charity, it's got everything!
Insider tips of the week
Every week, at Dinner with New Friends, I ask the group: “Do you have one super tip that you'd love to pass on to everyone in New York City?” Here goes the second round!:
“Say yes to everything! You never know who you will meet or where you will end up.” – Kirsty J.
“On train platforms, look for the dirtiest part on the yellow – that's where the trains most likely open their doors.” – Morgan L.
“The Skint blog is awesome for finding out what is happening around the city! Free events too!” – Zoe J.
“Anyone from out of town should check out smorgasburg!! It's a weekly food festival that came up in the conversation last night” – Rob K.
