One of my long time blog dreams has been to share inside peaks of my favorite restaurants in the city. And as made clear by the survey, you’re hankering for more content around what to do and where to eat in New York, too! I’m thrilled to kick off the first of many posts to come that show my go to spots for dinner, grabbing drinks with friends, or enjoying lazy brunches on the weekends. I’ve teamed up with my sweet friend Sas of Sasithon Photography to capture all the beauty of the food and spaces. Her photos are going to blow your mind!

To kick things offwe dropped by The Cookshop last week, one of my absolute favorite spots in all of Manhattan. I’ve eaten there literally more times than I can count and never tire of the food. My love affair with this place becomes pretty clear when you discover that their entire restaurant philosophy is based around bringing honest, seasonal dining to New York City. You know how passionate I am about that! And the thing is, they do it so well. From the food to the cocktails and everything in between,  I always feel like each dish truly honors the ingredients.

I love the way their dishes showcase the beauty of the natural ingredients. Pictured above is the Butterfield Sullivan County Brook Trout with green beans, chiles, scallions, ginger, and balsamic.

It seems like everyday now there’s a new cocktail bar springing up in the city, but Cookshop consistently wows me with their creations. The bartenders, just like the chef and kitchen staff, are tasked with creating cocktails around what’s in season. Pictured above is the “Bee Sting”- a cocktail composed of Greenhook Gin (made locally in Brooklyn), cayenne honey, lemon, and a spicy raw sugar rim. This was so good!

Can we talk about this BLT? It is literally the mother of all BLTs. It took every ounce of my self control not to chow down right in the middle of shooting! I love the way the sandwich is served on a rustic wood cutting board.

The Cookshop is located at 157 10th Avenue, right next to The High Line. I usually end up stuffing myself to the brim, so it’s the perfect time for a leisurely post meal stroll on the High Line, around Chelsea, or along the Hudson River Greenway. If you live in the city or are visiting, this is definitely a not to miss spot for breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner.

All photographs were taken by Sasithon Photography. Sas lives in New York City and travels locally and anywhere worldwide to shoot weddings, travel, lifestyle, and more. Check out more of here amazing work here! I so hope you’ve enjoyed this post, we can wait to show you more delicious-ness!
