In New York for Louis Vuitton America’s Cup: Where to Eat?

with No Comments

In a recent post on top nautically-themed watches, we mentioned Bremont Regatta OTUSA and Regatta AC, created in celebration of the brand’s successful partnership with the America’s Cup Series. Today, in anticipation of the upcoming Louis Vuitton America’s Cup World Series in NYC, Sailo would like to offer another recommendation, not of horologe, but of restaurants to try in New York.

Brunch

Buvette

Enjoy a traditional brunch at charming brasserie Buvette: you can’t go wrong with their egg fare (les oeufs) or croque monsieur. Beware of the long line, but after a delightful meal you can take a relaxing stroll along the river to Brookfield Place!

Cafe Mogador

A relaxed eatery offering Moroccan-influenced dishes with flavors from French and New American cuisine, Cafe Mogador offers a delectable fare. Their Moroccan Benedict is a must-try for brunch-lovers. It takes about half an hour to travel to Brookfield Place by subway–take the N, R, or the 6 train and don’t be late for the race!

Drinks

Pier 66 Maritime/The Frying Pan

There are many excellent places for drinks in New York, but we recommend The Frying Pan for the beautiful view it offers. What is more fitting than visiting the historic lightship when you are in town for the America’s Cup?

Dinner

Barbuto

Famous for its chicken, Barbuto will deliver you an unforgettable dinner during your stay in New York. Enough said.

Takashi

Way back in 2010 Takashi already captured the attention and high praises from the Food Editor of New York Times, Sam Sifton. Takashi specializes in Japanese BBQ, but every item on the menu is simply delicious. We recommend the Takashi’s K-F-C: Kobe beef tartare, whipped Foie gras marinated in white miso and Caviar from Hackleback, served with sake-pickled Japanese cantaloupe and toast.

Dessert

There is a place that every food-lover in New York should visit for dessert: Cha An. Walk through the city at night and enjoy the cozy atmosphere in this quaint teahouse. We recommend their sesame creme brulee.
