CAFE HABANACafe Habana has been an NYC institution since 1998, and its veritable institution, celebrity sightings, reviewer accolades and dedicated aficionados have made it famous for good reason. Offering delicious cuban food for both carnivores and vegetarians, Cafe Habana has something for everyone, and since it’s still illegal for US citizens to go to Cuba, this is a great way to experience the culinary world that has made Cuba a favorite amongst chefs and food snobs.

brooklyn soda worksBrooklyn Soda Works was formed in early 2010 by an artist and a chemist couple living in Brooklyn, NY. They started by experimenting with ginger beer, and moved onto more adventurous fruit combinations. They sell fresh from kegs at various markets (e.g. Brooklyn Flea and other events) through New York from spring through autumn. Brooklyn is hip as hell, and soda is refreshingly delicious, so the combination of the two WORKS.

KORILLA BBQWhat is a Korilla, you ask? It is nothing less than a Korean grillmasta serving up a complex combination of classic Korean recipes in contemporary forms.

Southernmost FalafelSouthernmost Falafel has got a combination of everything you’re craving, all tucked into one chewy pita. Cool tzatziki and hummus counteract the savory, Sriracha-spiked falafel for a must-have-seconds midday treat. For a dairy-free option, snag a Jimmy Roll. The oversized egg roll is stuffed with shredded fresh veggies, complimented my sweet and tangy duck sauce and Sriracha upon request. Though these dudes are Florida-based, their festival and concert schedule is most righteous, so it’s likely you’ll see them again this year.

BareburgerHave you been to one of the Bareburger locations around NYC? If so, then you know how their organic ingredients and many burger offerings hit the spot when you are craving a burger. They got beef, they got ostrich, they got garden, and they got many more to choose from. Additionally, these organic ingredients don’t leave you feeling sluggish and blah later on. Burger is as burger does. Does that make sense? No. But these are delicious and worth trying like at least 3 times.

mexicueMexicue is the sweet, sweet love child of red-hot Mexican cuisine and down-home, barbeque goodness. Here’s the Mexicue nutshell: They started mixing smoky and spicy in their own kitchen in Brooklyn. At first, it felt weird – maybe even wrong… Can the spicy, sultry flavors of Mexico hang with the smoky and sensuous barbecue? To put it mildly, they mixed. In fact, it was an explosive, mouthwatering union.

RITA'S WATER ICEIn 2010 Rita’s Water Ice opened its first store on the Upper West side in New York City (Rita’s Water Ice NYC) and is currently looking to open more locations on the East side of Manhattan, in Brooklyn and other Boroughs as well. In March of 2013 Rita’s Water Ice NYC changed ownership and is now run by the Armand Brothers (Georges and Gardi Armand). Rita’s NYC is here to bring you happiness, make your event extra special and bring something different to the table. From creating a signature cocktail to serving some custard or refreshing ice as dessert (all of our products are kosher!) you choose the flavors and we bring happiness. The Armand Brothers are aggressively penetrating the NYC market to ensure that everyone in New York City is aware of their store giving that it’s the only store in Manhattan. They both live in queens so i wouldn’t be surprise to see a store opening in queens very soon.

Rita’s Water Ice was founded in 1984 by former Philadelphia firefighter Bob Tumolo. By 1987 a second store was opened, and in 1989 the family decided to franchise their business. Today, there are over 500 locations in 20 states. In 2013, Rita’s opened its first location outside of the United States in Shenzhen, China and is currently looking to open some store in Canada as well.
