Finding food rich in quality and taste may seem to be a difficult feat, for some. However, in New York City, a fusion of food is a staple. Genuinely earning its name as the “Melting Pot” of the world, New York City lives up to its moniker by offering an array of foods from a multitude of cultures. With over 25,000 restaurants in the city’s five boroughs, it is difficult to keep track of which restaurant is opening or going out of business. Below is a list of new restaurants to visit in New York City.
Pilar Cuban Bakery
Pilar Cuban Bakery showcases both its sweet and savory sides. Owner Chef Ricardo Barreras cleverly fuses comfort eats like ham and cheese with the ambrosial sweetness of pastries and pastelitos. Other treats include Cuban bread, empanadas, sweet espresso shots, and creamy batidos (milkshakes). Pilar Cuban Bakery is located in Brooklyn’s Bedford-Stuyvesant area. 397 Greene Avenue.
Soon to offer dinner, Sonnyboy’s eats include salads like the Salmon Salad and the Green Bowl.
