As this summer comes to a close, this year is no different. Here are seven new and exciting restaurants to try in New York City, summer 2020 edition!

Chelsea Market – 75 9th Ave

Lobster Place Lobster Roll Picnic Basket

Chelsea Market is easily our favorite food market in New York City. With so many different eateries, no matter what you are craving at the moment you can probably find it in Chelsea Market. So we are very excited to hear that they are going outdoors. With over 115 tables, it is one of New York City’s largest outdoor dining destination. Some of our favorite eateries in Chelsea Market like Dickson’s Farmstand Meats and Lobster Place will be there.

Krispy Kreme – 1601 Broadway

Krispy Kreme Doughnuts

After a few delays, the Krispy Kreme store in Times Square will finally be open in September! We can’t wait to check out their giant glaze waterfall and try all their delicious doughnuts!

Sour Patch Kids Cafe – 665 Broadway

Sour Patch Kids Cafe The Swirl Ice Cream ConeP.C.: yelp, Tanesha J.

If you have a sweet tooth (like us), you may be drawn to all the crazy concoctions like a milkshake topped with a colorful rainbow cake or a Sour Patch Kids flavor cookie dough in the Sour Patch Kids Cafe in NoHo.

Bronx Ice – 782 Amsterdam Ave, Bronx

Bronx IceP.C.: yelp, Ira K.

One of our favorite ways to cool off from the New York City heat is a sweet Italian ice! Bronx Ice will have all the classics like lemon (our favorite) and strawberry along with more unusual flavors like watermelon & lime combination and a strawberry, blueberry & lemon blend.

King Dumplings – 74 Hester Street

King Dumplings Pork and Chives DumplingsP.C.: yelp, Eve C.

We are always on the lookout for something new in Chinatown and Little Italy! King Dumplings just opened and they are a great cheap eats spot. Also open this year is Dr. Clark (104 Bayard St), a Japanese restaurant with a ton of interesting dishes and Pinklady Cheese Tarts (11 Mott St) which is already one of our favorite dessert shops in Chinatown! In Little Italy, Sofia’s Panificio e Vino (43 Mulberry St) which serves pizza, pastas and breads is reopening soon. Want to stay on top of all the best foodie spots in Chinatown and Little Italy? Our private tours are back too!

Murray’s Cheese Bar – 28-30 Jackson Ave, Queens

Murray's Cheese Bar Murrays MeltP.C.: yelp, Diwan L.

For all things cheese, Murray’s Cheese Bar is a must! Unfortunately their location on Bleeker Street is closing but they are moving to a new location in Long Island City. We can’t wait to get their Murray’s Melt again.

Lhasa – 177 1st Ave

Lhasa Beef MomoP.C.: yelp, Candice L.

Finally Lhasa is a very popular Tibetan restaurant in Queens, famous for being hidden behind a cell phone store. They are opening a new, larger location in the East Village (that is also a lot easier to find). They are probably best known for momos (Tibetan dumplings) and thenthuk (hand pulled noodle soup).
