This article on the best places to eat in Manhattan is brought to you by the Manhattan personal injury attorneys at Banville Law. 

Are you looking for a new place to grab breakfast, lunch, dinner, or just a snack? Consider the following:

Sushi Yasaka

Open since 2011, sushi lovers have raved about their experience at Sushi Yaska. 

There is something for everyone here, even those who don’t love sushi! If you’re not a lover of fish, you can order a Prime Rib Eye Steak or go with vegetable sushi-like sweet potato. 

Be sure to check their website before arriving, as the restaurant does shut down between lunch and dinner hours. 

Noi Due Cafe

A husband and wife team founded Noi Due Cafe which means “the two of us” in Italian. You and your loved ones will adore the authentic Mediterranean dishes served at Noi Due Cafe, including brick oven pizza. 

Noi Due can also cater events and is Kosher Certified under the leadership of Rabbi Don Yoel Levy. 

Gray’s Papaya 

In New York sometimes things come together that one wouldn’t normally expect. That’s exactly what happens at Gray’s Papaya where diners can go to get a hot dog to go with your fresh-squeezed tropical juice! Who knew this type of food and drink would make a good combo?

Open 24 hours, Gray’s Papaya also offers a variety of breakfast sandwiches. 

Mongolia Bakery 

If you’ve got a sweet tooth then you can’t skip Mongolia Bakery. The team at Mongolia provides baked treats of all varieties! 

In addition to a sweet treat, Mongolia Bakery also offers classes in cake and cupcake decorating techniques! The team is also happy to provide catering for corporate events, private parties, and weddings. 

Amsterdam Ale House 

Amsterdam Ale House is the perfect setting to watch a game and enjoy a good beer. 

This brewpub has a huge menu that includes appetizers, pasta, burgers, pizza, tacos, and sandwiches. Live music is a common occurrence and upcoming shows can be found on their website. Don’t put Amsterdam Ale House at the bottom of your list when you’re in the mood for a casual night out! 

The Mermaid Inn 

Mermaid Inn in Manhattan The first thing you should do before visiting the Mermaid Inn is to download their app, Oysterpedia which helps to “take the guesswork” out of ordering oysters. As it turns out, oysters can be difficult to order because of a variety of factors including weather, location, and how the oyster is cultivated. The creators of the app want each diner to learn all about the environmental factors that can impact how an oyster tastes so that they can enjoy their meal! 

Private events can be hosted at the Inn! 

Empellon

How does pumpkin seed cappelletti with achiote and honeynut squash juice sound? Or crisp pork belly? Or masa stuffed clams with bacon? If any of these items appeal, then you have to stop at Empellon. The artistic yet modern setting provides a calm atmosphere in which you can enjoy simply exquisite dishes. 

Private rooms are also available for private events. 

Margon 

Although Margon isn’t the fanciest of locations, their Cuban sandwiches can’t be beat. You’ll feel like you took a step back into the New York of 1973 at this counter-service that is packed all day long!

Pure Thai Cookhouse

The name says it all! At Pure, you’ll get authentic dishes from Thailand, made fresh. Although you can order online, we recommend stopping in at least once to enjoy the setting that Pure has to offer. A few of our favorite dishes include: 

  • Green Papaya Salad
  • Pa-Yao Beef Noodles Soup 
  • Wok Curry Paste With Pork
  • Jungle Curry Fried Rice 

The reality is, however, that everything you order at Pure is delicious! 

With so many places to explore and eat, Manhattan has something for every palate. We hope that this list has provided you with a few places that you and your loved ones will enjoy!
