Jane Jane JaneThis Vanilla Bean French Toast is the best one I’ve ever had in New York City. Notice the size of the the portion served - it’s HUGE. Anyone would definitely feel stuffed by just eating one single order. The French toaste is made with French Brioche soaked in milk instead of Challah. If you like Brioche, DO NOT MISS OUT ON THIS ONE! Its crusty on the outside and moist on the inside. And not the last to mention: its topped with fresh banana and strawberries, and sprinkled with powdered sugar making this favourable aesthetics win all others!

L'Amico Jane L'AmigoHow tender and juicy is the Grilled Octopus in their menu? You need to try it out yourself to grasp the full experince. Their savory grilled octopus comes with sourish pickled celery, sautéed fingerling potatoes and capers making this dish the best combination ever. If you love octopus, you just gotta savour this order from their lunch menu.
Its thumbs-up on both the food and environment for this restaurant. I would recommend their Lemon Ricotta Pancakes for brunch slot which is between 11:30am -3:00pm on Saturdays and 11:00am - 3:00pm on Sundays. These pancakes are one of the best we’ve ever had in the city. They are tastefully soft, topped with fresh plum & berry sauce, whipped lemon cream and maple syrup on the side, very tasty!

The latest popular spot located in SOHO with very strong social media followers is Nickel & Diner. Their interior decor style is minimal simplicity with a feel of sophistication to enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner or for a drink at their cocktail bar.


Nickel & Diner Nickel & DinerLet us share an advice when placing an order for their Nickel Burger with add-ons bacon. When their server asks you: “How would you like your burger?” , it would be best to request for“medium-rare” or “medium”, because only by these request, you can taste the qualities of the beef, and also “medium” cooked patties will actually come out as “medium-well” even “well-done” at some random restaurants. Patties are always key to any burgers, and there is definitely no doubt about it. Nickel Burger has met all these requirements to serve better burger. Juicy patty with crispy bacons and some fresh veggies can conquer your taste buds big time.
Their medium cooked New Zealand rack of lamb is a good option to have as an entree. Even thought it is undercooked, you don’t need to worry about any undesired smell of the lamb. Nickel & Diner only uses fresh lamb for their dish at their kitchen. So go ahead and order confidently.

Mouth-watering smell of steak "awaits" you while stepping into Peter Luger. One can't help but to wait patiently to be shown to your table and to sit down and take a bite of the most famous steak in New York City. You’d better either have a reservation or go there as early as possible. Otherwise, you’re going to queque awhile for a table!


THE VINE THE VINETHE VINEThere are three recommendations to try out at Peter Luger’s Steak House.

The first is the USDA Prime Steak. When the sizzling streak arrive on a very hot plate, you can just take up your knife and fork and savour it. And don't forget to add the special steak sauce they make in-house.

The second is Luger’s Sizzling Bacon. The highlight here is that the sliced bacon is extra thick. The portion is very big and it is good for for sharing. This bacon doesn’t have too much fat in it, thus you don’t need to worry about about it being greasy.

Lastly but not the least, the Jumbo Shrimp Cocktails! This one is with extra large potion, and you can be excused calling these shrimp prawns because they are really as big as prawns! The shrimp cocktail sauce is another craze. Sweet-sour and a bit spicy taste. The mixture is mainly ketchup, hot sauce and Worcestershire sauce. Great combinations to make this order tastier.
