I’ll let you into a little secret. I love food. I love good food.

I love fresh, good food that leaves a lasting impression, long after the taste buds have dined out on a new sensation.

And when I travel, that doesn’t change. I’m always on the hunt for something new, delicious and exciting to tantalise my taste buds.

New York City is well-known for its culinary scene. From world-class restaurants to $1 hot dogs from street carts, everyone knows that New Yorkers love food.
