Check out a glorious new foodie destination called Urban Space Vanderbilt located behind Grand Central Terminal. The space has over 20 chef driven gourmet food shops among which are Roberta’s Pizza, No. 7 Veggie, Mimi’s Hummus and Dough Doughnuts. I recently visited Urban Space Vanderbilt at around 7:30pm and the place was buzzing with people eating and having drinks. Enjoy some delicious food in a lively atmosphere.

Fika is becoming known for having one of the best espressos in the city. To find out for myself (and all of you) I tried one this morning and it was excellent and so was the chocolate, the perfect flavor companion. FIKA NYC

On Lexington Avenue at 52nd Street, there is an outpost of a popular French restaurant Le Relais de Venise. They’ve been serving up their famous combination of steak and frites since arriving on the block two years ago, and now another French flavored business has moved in across the street: Paris Baguette Cafe. It’s the perfect place to grab a coffee and French pastry after your meal. Paris Baguette Cafe
