What I Ate In New York

I really did mean to gather up a list of places that I wanted to eat in New York, but, you know, I forget to do things. I can barely remember to reply to a text message, let alone do research about where to eat and drink and all of those fun, delicious things that you can do in big cities. So, this list of places I've eaten was a result of where I usually eat when I'm here, wandering around hungry and stopping places out of desperation, and based on recommendations from family.

I'm the worst and am admittedly a pretty picky eater. I'm sure all of these places have other very delicious foods, but if you're a fellow picky eater or don't know where to start food-wise, here are a couple of options! Hopefully I continue to eat my way through New York City without going up a pant size because I have too many pairs of jeans that I refuse to replace!!!
