See what I mean?? This is the honey chicken biscuit. Yummmmmm.

Le Pain Quotidien

Le Pain Quotidien is a great place to grab breakfast on the go. Fabulous croissants, muffins, and coffee to take with you on your adventure.

John’s Pizzeria on Bleecker Street

John’s on Bleecker Street is the best New York pizza.

The Smith Restaurant

The Smith was voted favorite restaurant by the kids and my husband. (It’s a *close* second for me, but Jacob’s Pickles beat it out).

The food was every bit as good as the gorgeous decor. So you know it was goooood.

So what do you think? Have you eaten at any of these restaurants before? Any I need to add to my list? Let me know if you head to the Big Apple and try them!
