One great thing about NYC being our campus is the food. Anything you want you can find and usually at anytime during the day. I asked a few friends their suggestions for great places to eat by campus and this was the result. I hope you all are foodies like me.
Urban Space is a small place where there are at least 15 vendors with all different kinds of food. They have donuts, burgers, pizza, crepes, Asian inspired nachos and this one places has a hibiscus slushy
that is to die for. It is a chill space to eat with friends and grab a quick bite.
This is a great place to grab a snack or look at the buffet of food that they have available. This place is right next to Maxwell making it the perfect stop.
In the mood for some Mediterranean food? This is just the place. Located on 45th and 3rd Avenue.
Gai Chicken and Rice
One of my favorites. They serve wings and chicken over garlic rice. It is a take on Singaporean and Malaysian Hainanese chicken.
This cute little shop near Maxwell allows you to make your own bento lunch and has a few classic Asian snacks on the side too. Their spicy chicken sandwich is also pretty good.
Wok to Wok
Wok to wok is a great place if you are in the mood for some lo mien and other Asian noodle dishes.
Pure Green is a smoothie place that now has expanded into breakfast foods. Their smoothie is very filling and their açai bowls are known to be great too. I often get the pure green smoothie when I feel like I am about to get sick and it really helps knock the sickness out of me.
OKI Poke Ramen
Vegan and Vegetarian Food
Iasked my friend that is a vegetarian, and is a fan of eating vegan food, what her favorite places were. She said that by campus, the two places that she recommends is By Chloe and Le Bontanise. I have never been to these but look forward to the Fall when I can.
