Dining in the Empire State
With a rental car, visitors can hop around the city, exploring the outdoor parks such as the beautiful Brooklyn Bridge Park and an endless number of fine eateries. If you’re heading to Central Park for the afternoon, pack a picnic basket beforehand and find a spot out on the green and enjoy your meal as you watch people going about their business. There are also plenty of colorful gardens, a wildlife center and live performances all year-round.
While there are plenty of delis around to fill your picnic basket with tasty treats, you may prefer a sit-down meal. For a casual meal, head over to Vinegar Hill House, Mile End or The Breslin in NYC for lunch. When dinnertime rolls around, treat yourself to an upscale meal at one of the Michelin approved restaurants - Le Bernardin and Dovetail are among the top spots in the city.
Those who are exploring Buffalo during the New York excursion would be wise to enjoy more than just chicken wings! To start your foodie excursion here, head to Betty’s for some American comfort food.
