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.

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.
My latest Thrillist article details the the best pasta dishes in New York City—from a bucket list-worthy lasagna better than your mom’s to a chicken liver signature from one of the city’s star chefs. Check out the full article here. Then mangia to your heart’s content.
