Every time we go out or we are in holidays in New York city, we check reviews about places to eat. It is rare to look for fun places to eat in NYC  but we promise you, that it will be a great experience, so make it different!. We recommend you in this list the best ones to have fun:

The Meatball Shop

fun-places-to-eat-in-nyc-the-meatball-shop

The restaurant reinvented the concept of serving classic meatballs, but co-founders Michael Chernow and Daniel Holzman knew early on that running a successful business comes down to staying ahead of everyone else in the industry.

The restaurant decided to implement a queue system called WaitAway, which is an app that allows guests to put down their names, phone numbers and party sizes. They are then able to check on the status of their wait time via text messages. The price is low.

Eataly

fun-places-to-eat-in-nyc-eataly

Is a huge Italian shop where you can join a glass of wine (for free) while shopping, the “fresh pasta” is hilarious. Workshops are announced there and website.  Eataly carries more than 100 single estate olive oils! If you think you’ve had good olive oil, consult with the store’s olive oil sommelier and prepare to taste even better olive oil! Eataly Vino hosts complimentary wine tastings most weeknights between 6 and 8 p.m. The price is medium.

Salute!

Budakkan

fun-places-to-eat-nyc-budakkan

This strange, synthetic landscape doesn’t feel like a restaurant. It feels like an oversize nightclub, or a random gathering in the semi-abandoned mansion of some absent Cantonese billionaire. But then the food starts to arrive, and the mood changes. There are traditional Chinese selections on the menu at Buddakan (very good Cantonese spring rolls, steamed sole served in a properly steamy bamboo container), and there are dishes that maintain their classic nature but have been updated in all sorts of inventive ways. It is a it expensive.

75 9th Ave, New York,

The Stanton Social

fun-places-to-eat-in-nyc-stanton-social

Stanton Social knows the secret to Lower East Side popularity: Appeal to the transplanted A-listers without alienating the neighborhood’s scruffier long-timers. The posh first-floor dining room is a romance of dark wood with semicircular chocolate-suede banquettes, flickering votives, and cylindrical glass lamps suspended from a soaring ceiling; the upstairs lounge is a shrine to wine.  Price rate is medium.

Lower East Side,

Beauty & Essex

fun-places-to-eat-in-nyc-beautyandessex

Elegant surroundings, better than average food, and well-made cocktails. Here the bi-level space oozes early-sixties glam, from the two-story chandelier to the peacock-themed grand dining room to the free-flowing pink Champagne in the ladies’ room. Given this, and the beautiful crowd the place attracts, it wouldn’t really matter too much if the food were good, but for the most part, it is: a globetrotting menu of mostly small plates that emphasizes upscale ingredients. Price rate is high.

Fun places to eat in NYC, the best ones.

Caracas Arepa Bar

fun-places-to-eat-in-nyc-caracas-arepa-bar

Caracas Arepa Bar is devoted to the pleasures of homemade Venezuelan food. Since 2003 we have been dedicated to the idea of a space where authentic quality food converges with the eclectic vibe of our city.

It is not a fast food joint, and certainly not a “Nuevo Latino” restaurant.  No matter where you come from, whether you are part of the family or a first-time guest, you will feel the warmth of our dedication through the joy of our meals. Price rate medium.

93 1/2 E. 7th St.

Cafe Habana

fun places to eat in nyc cafe habana

Café Habana is an old-school Dominican diner that had been holding it down on the corner of Elizabeth and Prince long before NoLita was born. Inspired by a storied Mexico City lunch joint where legend has it Che and Fidel plotted the Cuban Revolution, Café Habana is a mix of straight-shooter authenticity and nonchalant cool.

The original Café Habana, a busy luncheonette, still exists in downtown Mexico City. All the famous Cuban musicians would hang out there, enjoying their meals and stories.  We’re happy to bring the sweet smell of home cooking to you…..enjoy!!! Price rate is low.
