FOOD: While We Were Young
Every now and then, a restaurant pops up in NYC that takes the city by storm. And even though there are over 24,000 eateries in New York, there is always that one that manages to rise above the rest. This is the restaurant that everyone lines up to try. This is the restaurant that suddenly shows up on the top of every Restaurant List from Time Out NY to The Infatuation. In 2017, that restaurant was While We Were Young in the West Village.
The tiny restaurant (like, seriously tiny) is located in the chic West Village and features and array of delicious healthy contemporary American cuisine. From their Chicken and Waffles (careful, their take on this classic favorite has a little bit of a kick to it) to the millennial favorite Avocado Toast, there's simply no dish that isn't tasty here.
If you're still not sold on the food, you should check it out if only for its decor. The fresh florals, marble table tops, and dreamy pink theme come together as if MADE for Instagram - which is probably why it became a fast favorite for NYC fashionistas and bloggers within a 100 mile radius of the city.
