Haute cuisine never goes out of fashion in New York. Don your glad rags and book well ahead for brasserie-style fine dining at Les Halles (15 John Street), Locanda Verde (377 Greenwich Street), and Le Bernardin (155 West 51st Street), all of which are run by celebrity chefs.
Fusion fine dining is also an exciting prospect in New York, with the likes of Aquavit (65 East 55th Street) leading the way with its modern take on Nordic classic and Per Se (10 Columbus Circle) delivering an artful blend of New American and French cuisine.

New York’s local food scene is very much reflective of its multi-cultural heritage; you can easily spend your whole trip sampling an addictive array of delicious dishes.
New Yorkers have a passion for delis and you’ll find them on almost every corner – perfect for sampling authentic Jewish bagels piled high with pastrami or smothered with cream cheese and salmon lox, along with old-school classics like matzo ball soup.
Alternatively, hone in on the next street vendor you see for that all-American (well, via Germany) lunchtime classic – well-seasoned hot dogs piled high with fried onions or sauerkraut.
Pizza is famously a Neapolitan export but New Yorkers will argue that the recipe was perfected in Little Italy’s family-run restaurants.
For a slice of something sweet, New York-style cheesecake is a must, and you’ll find that New Yorkers much prefer their simple vanilla recipe to more elaborate flavour combos.
You’ll find the best of the best of New York’s lip-smackingly good soul food in Harlem, where windows and open doors waft out the smell of mouth-watering dishes such as grilled shrimp, BBQ wings and fried chicken served on top of breakfast waffles. The best joints are a well-kept secret among the locals, so be prepared to do your research.
