Boozy picnics, frisbee games, and straight loungin’ on Sheep Meadow: warm weather days are finally here, and there’s no better place to enjoy the great outdoors (or just take a break from crazy city life) than in beautiful Central Park.

There are dozens of awesome eateries within walking distance of the perimeter, from old-school delis to high-end restaurants to casual burger joints. My latest Thrillist article showcases great go-to spots (organized by location) around the Park—check out the full list here. Skip the dirty-water dog vendor and get after it.

Thrillist Feature: 22 of the Best Pasta Dishes in NYC

Wednesday, February 24, 2016 at 09:02 AM - Posted by Megan - (0) comments

When it comes to Italian food in New York, pizza dominates the conversation. And while we are a pizza town at heart, the pasta here has also long been indisputably the best outside of Italy—and decades of Italian New Yorkers crafting homemade red sauce classics, combined with chefs’ never-ending need for innovation, leaves us with the most delicious and diverse pasta options we’ve ever seen.

Num Pang’s Latest Charity Collaboration Rocks

Sunday, March 22, 2015 at 05:03 PM - Posted by Megan - (0) comments

Hip hop’s hottest new mashup goes between the bread. Ben Daitz and Ratha Chaupoly—the chef-owner duo behind NYC’s cult-favorite sandwich shop Num Pang—teamed up with one of their idols, Adam Horovitz (aka Ad-Rock) from the Beastie Boys, to launch a special charity collaboration.

Available from March 17 to April 15 at all Num Pang locations, the New York-inspired Ad-Rock Pang will feature layers of smoked pastrami from Mile End Deli, cucumbers, cilantro, pickled carrots and chili Russian dressing on Num Pang’s signature toasted semolina bread. And it’ll be served lunch box-style with a housemade spicy garlic-dill pickle spear, Wise potato chips and Virgil’s cream soda—Ad-Rock’s favorite ’wich accompaniments.

It’s all part of Num Pang’s ongoing “Chefs Give Back” series, where Ben and Ratha work closely with top chefs and New York legends to create specialty sandwiches to benefit charity. All of the Ad-Rock Pang proceeds will go to Ad-Rock’s charity of choice, the Brooklyn Animal Rescue Coalition, and Num Pang’s, the Badass Brooklyn Animal Rescue. An inventive, flavor-fused sandwich and helping animals in need? As the Beastie Boys would say, “Yes, yes, y’all!”

Only 30 of the limited edition sandwiches are available at each location, per day—don’t miss out on your chance to snag one. Find out more at numpangnyc.com.
