THE WAYFARER STUDY'S GUIDE: WHERE TO EAT IN NYC...IN 4 HOURS

Friends and fiancee in Lower Manhattan

Yes, we all know New York City is a pretty big-ass city...and there's no way one could find every gem as far as eats and spirits are concerned. However, it is possible to maximize whatever time is spent in the city. You'd be surprised what you could find.

Recently, I spent a few hours in Manhattan (Greenwhich Village) with my wife-to-be and a couple of her college friends. The food we ate...pretty random, but some pretty awesome spots I highly recommend.


SWEET CHICK (8:15PM)

Maaaaaan listen. I've been wanting to try this place ever since I found them on Instagram. Being that I'm an addicted Crossfit fanatic, it gives me warranted pleasure to unleash my inner fat boy. There was no other place I'd want to unleash such fuckery, than Sweet Chick(Ludlow Street.  location)

When I say EVERYTHING was good...I mean EVERY word. Try the "Tiger, Tiger Woods Ya'll" cocktail and the crawfish hushpuppies...lawd.


(10:15PM)

After we finished at Sweet Chick, we drove a few blocks to get more drinks at a local diner


MISS LILY'S DINER (10:30PM)

...enter, Miss Lily's Diner. Probably the 1st Carribbean diner I've ever gone to...which means..."May we have a pitcher of Rum punch, please?"

The rum punch had me a little "twisted"


After the bottomless pitcher of the mystery Rum Punch, we mosied a few more blocks to try out Mickey Likes..unfortunately, we got there a little too late and they only had a few flavors available...which really pained us all. However, I did manage to get this shot...

MIKEY LIKES IT ICE CREAM (11:23PM)

The clock inside Mikey Likes It


EMPIRE BISCUITS (11:30PM)

Directly across the street from Mickey Likes, was this safety net. Being from Charleston, SC, I can be a (insert traditional Southern food) snob. Empire Biscuit specializes in just that...."Bus-gets". I think I would have enjoyed this spot a little more, had I not been full from the fried chicken and waffles and the 4-5 "Tiger Woods" and pitcher of Rum Punch.


So yeah...just (4) hours and we managed to eat some pretty awesome "fat-boy" treats...in roughly, 4-5 blocks in distance. Not bad for an in-and-outer trek to NYC. 

Please, if you have a better list...let us know.
