New York…we’ve talked Manhattan and Brooklyn, but if you have time to head out to Long Island, it sure is beautiful and not at all what you picture from seeing New York in the movies!




Now to the Food…



  • Food for Thought (Garden City) – healthy lunch spot…salads, bowls, juices, etc.
  • The Flour Shoppe (Rockville Centre) – for brunch!
  • Le Pain Quotidien (Garden City) – healthy lunch sit down (quick) spot
  • Bagel Master (Syosset) or My Three Sons (Williston Park) – delis that have great in-house bagels
  • Bareburger (Queens) – great burgers! Organic, all-natural, vegan options, etc.
  • Chopt (New Hyde Park) – love their “cauliflower rice” base! You can also find Chopt restaurants in Manhattan
  • Avo Taco (New Hyde Park) – I’ve never met a taco I didn’t like!
  • True Food Kitchen (Garden City) – You can’t go wrong with anything on their menu!
