Culinary travelogue Manhattan and New York
I really wanted to To visit the Bouchon Bakery - that's for sure.
As a huge fan of the opulent book Bouchon Bakery *, this was an absolute must.
And after the branch in the Time Warner Building closed for refurbishment , we visited the café right on Rockefeller Plaza for breakfast.
As expected, the prices are quite salted, but our simple croissant and pain au chocolat were really delicious!

THE Cupcake Cult Bakery
The Magnolia Bakery became known not least through Sex and the City.Today it looks different again. At least the branches at Rockefeller Plaza and at Grand Central Station are busy, but not overcrowded.
I tried a Red Velvet cupcake when I was there, but the banana pudding is really THE star , So incredibly delicious that I have to try to make it at home! Fortunately, I have been in the closet for quite some time, The Complete Magnolia Bakery Cookbook *. The cupcake was just too sweet and too powerful for me.
Union Square, New York, NY 10017
The Union Square Greenmarket is a 4 times a week Farmer's Market, located in the heart of Union Square.
Regional producers and businesses sell wonderful products such as seasonal fruits and vegetables from local farms, cheeses and dairy products, bread or flowers.
I liked the atmosphere very much. In the immediate vicinity of Union Square are also branches of organic supermarkets Whole Foods and Trader Joe's.
e. Access via Gansevoort Street, Meatpacking District
An old elevated railway line converted into a park
A true highlight was the Highline! A beautiful spot of nature on a former elevated railway track, which you can stroll along on foot. With plenty of seating and views and lots of plants, this park invites you to linger.
I mention the Highline at this point especially because it offers some very special culinary delights.
We are in the Meatpacking District on the Gansevoort Street started and ran through the highline north to the end.
About halfway along the route there is a dining area, which is not only used by tourists, but apparently also by city dwellers who spend their lunch break there There is a Mexican stall, ice cream shop, ice pops, ice cream sandwiches and sodas. Our highlight was Briskettown: there was wonderfully tender and juicy roast beef as a sandwich.You do not have to fly to the US to eat good burgers ...
Le Pain Quotidien
70 West 40th Street, New York, NY 10018
Bakery and Café
On our last day in New York We had breakfast at Le Pain Quotidien on Bryant Park.
This day was a Sunday, we had nice weather and we sat in Bryant Park all day relaxing, only interrupted by a short trip to Grand Central Station.
The Day started here perfectly with a delicious Sunday breakfast.
And because I like the concept and the dishes so well, of course, had the cookbook of this bakery chain ago: Le Pain Quotidien Cookbook *.
Too bad that it is the shops in Deu Germany no longer exists ...
Dean and Deluca
620 8th Avenue, New York, NY 10018
Café & Shop
Also Here again I was so impressed by the dishes and the concept that I hardly had to go back to Germany immediately to have the cookbook: The Dean and DeLuca Cookbook * - what great ideas!
Cake Boss Cafe
625 8th Ave, New York, NY 10018
The TV's "The Cake Boss" Café
I think hardly anyone in this country knows Cake Bud Buddy Valastro, who, with his bakery in Hoboken, has known" Carlo's Bakery "in a TLC television series was. In 2010, I devoured the first three seasons at Netflix!
And although we've lived quite close to Carlo's Bakery, we have not been to the original store. Somehow the thrill has been gone since it's so well known.
Near the Port Authority Bus Terminal, there's now the Cake Boss Cafe with a monstrous buddy doll and fast food charm.
The cakes and other baked goods are really worth seeing and delicious!
One should rather order them to take away ...
Of course, I have here also the appropriate Cake Boss book in the closet: Cake Boss: Stories and Recipes from Mia Famiglia *. There is now a whole heap of books by and with the Cake Boss. But this is the first and most authentic of them.

16 W 51st St, New York, NY 10019
Another recommendation for burgers in New York is Bill's.
We spent the last night in a hotel right on Rockefeller Center and landed hungry at Bill's.
One really cool shop with huge portions, fair prices and waiters who look like Justin Bieber ...
The fact is, I'm not all that yet I've seen what I wanted to see.
There's certainly so much to discover, so I'd like to go back to New York.
I think you just have to see it.
