Superb dining at The Tavern on The Green, New York

Tavern on the Green Central Park Room

Situated on the Upper West Side in the heart of Central Park, this again is a must for tourists, who are not travelling on a student allowance.  However, as the saying goes ”You get what you pay for” and in this case, superb location, great service and amazing food. The views overlooking the park are worth a visit alone. The restaurant itself is open and light and with the windows facing onto the patio and park.

All in the Tavern on The Green was a superb dining experience and somewhere i would definitely go back to.

A luxurious brunch at the Waldorf Astoria, New York


New Yorkers love their Sunday brunch and the Astoria has been boasting one of the best for several decades now. The beautiful, historic building situated on Midtown Park Avenue is impressive from both outside and in. There is a certain air of old society New York and tradition about this hotel and on entering it feels sumptuous and grand, yet warm and welcoming.

The beautiful architecture and surroundings of the Astoria, coupled with the delicious food on offer, make this a very worthwhile experience whilst in New York. My only advice would be, skip breakfast and make room for all of the many culinary delights on offer.  $98 per head and first glance might seem a little pricey, but it is actually quality food and classy surroundings at great value.

Spoil yourself in the heart of New York at the the Kitano Hotel


The boutique hotel Kitano in New York is situated a stones throw from the Empire State Building and in central Manhattan. Before you even step inside the stunning hotel, you are greeted by the porter at the door and this is just where the excellent service begins. The receptionists are very friendly and are sure to make you feel welcome. The lounge area is grand, with large comfortable sofas, high ceilings, and luxurious wood.

If you would like to stay right in the centre of New York and visit all that this beautiful city has to offer, the Kitano should be your point of call. You will feel welcome from the moment you step in, until the moment you leave and staying there will help you create wonderful memories you had hoped for.
