NYC Non-Restaurant Reviews

This is basically all the places I ate, had a cup of coffee, or a cocktail that isn’t from a restaurant. In other words, take-out joints, bakeries (LOTS of those), ice cream shops, coffee/tea shops, food trucks, and last but not least, bars.

Just click the number or location to get the post. They are in alphabetical order and in chronological order.
