NEW YORK

New York Cheesecake

In New York, as far as we’re concerned, it is perfectly acceptable to skip dinner and go straight for dessert. Particularly when it comes in the form of New York Cheesecake. The beauty is in its simplicity. A tasty fact for you…

WINGS & SHAKES

Buffalo Wings

That said, however, you probably wouldn’t want to miss out on some of the other local delicacies, including perennial favourite Buffalo Wings. Hailing from, you guessed it, Buffalo, New York, these tasty chicken wings are the perfect marriage of flavours, with the creamy blue cheese sauce tempering the spicy marinade. Plus, there’s just something so satisfying about eating with your hands. Something for the calendar…

Shake Shack

There is an absolute abundance of fantastic restaurants in New York City, but sometimes it’s nice to just take things back to basics. You can’t go wrong with Shake Shack, which actually started life as a modest hot dog cart in Madison Square Park!. We’ll let you in on a secret…

Buffalo

If you’re a foodie on a budget, you will find a little slice of heaven in Buffalo, with its delicious yet affordable cuisine. A little trivia, it’s said the name ‘Buffalo’ is derived from ‘beau fleuve’ (beautiful river), from when the French originally settled here in 1758.

Niagara Falls

If you’re planning a drive upstate, it would be almost criminal not to visit the majestic Niagara Falls at New York’s border with Canada. If you remember to carry your passport on you, you can even cross over the border to admire the view from Canada. Just prepare to get wet in the process.

Finger Lakes

A visit to the Finger Lakes is another must for tours of upstate New York. There are 11 narrow lakes to pootle around by car, and if you happen to be something of a wine aficionado, be sure to stop by at one of the many excellent wineries in the region. Perhaps best if you’ve got someone else to drive you back to your accommodation!
