The Canal Street Market is an exciting food hall and retail space in Chinatown and it should be fully open in 2017. The space is huge and it is located next to the Canal Street subway station. There should be a number of interesting food options ranging from yummy Italian sandwiches to bubble milk tea and much more plans are in the works.

Burger & Lobster Midtown – One Bryant Park

Burger & Lobster keeps the menu simple. You can only get a burger, a lobster or a lobster roll here and they are all amazing. They are opening a new location in Midtown by Bryant Park so it is just a short walk from Times Square. This is an amazing addition to the area and it is sure to be very popular.

Tim Ho Wan – 85 4th Ave

Summerstage in Central Park is the biggest outdoor summer concert series in New York City. Some of the biggest names in music have played here and it is always a ton of fun. 2017 should be no different.
