NYC Restaurants 101

Food Blogs- Best of the Best

8 October 2010

New York is both the center of the media world and the country’s greatest food city, so it’s no surprise that the city is chock full of food blogs – so full that it’s hard to know where to begin. That’s why we’ve created this guide for you to the best of the best: just think of it as your Cliffs Notes for NYC Restaurants 101.

IF YOU’RE LOOKING FOR…NewsZach from MidtownLunch

Grub Street New York  offers more than a dozen posts each day on everything from openings and closings to cookbook reviews to the foodievents you just can’t miss (full disclosure: we used to write for Grub Street. We were, however, a reader before we were an employee). There’s also a cornucopia of regular features, including the addictive New York Diet, wherein celebrities talk about what they like to eat in the city.

Runner Up: Diner’s Journal : The writing might not be as punchy as Grub Street or Eater, but the news is always breaking.


Eater will have you feeling like a restaurant insider after reading just a few posts. It’s snarky, it’s dishy, and it’s fun. If you urgently need to know Todd English’s latest dating drama, who Ryan Skeen is mad at right now, or exactly how soon Michael Bao’s next project will open, Eater is the blog for you.

Runner Up: Fork In The Road: One part industry gossip, one part service-oriented features add up to what might be New York’s most underrated food blog.

IF YOU’RE LOOKING FOR…Restaurant Recommendations

Serious Eats New York is, without a doubt, the city’s most comprehensive service-oriented blog. Want to know where to find the city’s best chocolate chip cookie? They’ve done a scientific study. Looking for an early review of the hottest new restaurant? They’ll have one within a week of opening, complete with a drool-inducing slideshow.

Runner Up: Midtown Lunch : As Midtown workers doubtless know, the area can be a food wasteland. Midtown Lunch effortlessly cuts through all the overpriced steakhouses and salmonella delis to find the best cheap eats around.
