The ones I didn’t manage to visit on this occasion but I’d like to check out next time I’m in town:

Big Apple ideas – as of April 2014

One of my favourite megalopoli to meander about is NYC and thus recommendations evolve with each visit.

Three new particularly worthwhile places have been added to this Foursquare NYC Coffee list – in the order that I visited them:

  1. The Smile – tucked away downstairs at 26 Bond St (btwn Bowery & Lafayette St.), New York, NY 10012 and 
  2. Abraço – on 86 E 7th St (at 1st Ave), New York, NY 10003
  3. Everyman Espresso – 301 W Broadway (btwn Canal & Grand St.), New YorkNY 10013

For a more comprehensive collection of coffee joints across New York, check out Blue Crow’s NYC Coffee app (scroll).

This time I sadly didn’t get to update my jazz joint list… but did add a new place to the short, and incomplete, list of worthwhile cocktail establishments
