Top 5 Best Eats in Flatiron District

The Flatrion district is one of my most favorite areas. It is so wonderful to walk around and check out the unique shops and restaurants. You can also take a break in Madison Square Park from all the walking which is so lovely. I thought I would put together some of the top 5 best places to eat in the area. They are so many good choices, but these are those that I enjoy. 

In no particular order: 

1. Eataly  - I can't really say enough about this place. It is a must visit for any foodie. There are restaurants, food counters, cafe, market and cooking classes. I would recommend everyone to visit here at least once, and be sure to try some of the amazing food! The gelato is one of the best I have ever enjoyed. 

2. Beecher's Handmade Cheese - If you like cheese, you need to visit here! When visiting Beecher's in the Flatiron District, you can grab a sandwich in the cafe and watch the cheesemakers at work or wander downstairs into The Cellar where you can enjoy a glass of wine in the glow of their cheese cave where row upon row of Beecher's cheeses ripen to perfection. It is homemade cheese like no other. 

3. City Bakery  - One of the BEST hot chocolates you will find in the city, the month of February is their hot chocolate festival - one flavor each day! They make wonderful pastries as well, a must stop when in this area. 

4. Eleven Madison Park  - The restaurant is run by Chef Daniel Humm and Restaurateur Will Guidara and it is a top notch restaurant. For special occasions, birthday or anniversaries, it is worth the splurge. The tasting menu will cost you $295 for 8 to 10 courses. Michelin Guide - 3 Stars #1 in the World's 50 Best Restaurants - 2017 #3 in the World's 50 Best Restaurants - 2016 4 Stars in New York Times - It is worth the price, and expect to be in awe. 

5. Madison Square Eats  - Owed by the Urbanspace which brings amazing food vendors all to one area 5th Ave between 25 and 26th Streets. The Spring market runs May through June and the Fall runs through the month of September. I love the idea that you can taste some of the best food vendors in the city all in one spot. Some of my faves are Roberta's, Melt Bakery, Bao by KayaMacaron ParlourLas Sonrisa Foods. Pure genius.
