Whether it's date night, girls night out, or a birthday dinner, it's always exciting to try out new places to eat. New York City, a city filled with endless amounts of tourist-y and potentially over-the-top restaurants, is a great place to celebrate. If you're fortunate enough to live relatively close to the city, in the city itself, or even if you're just visiting, there are so many different food options to explore. If you're looking for a special night out, here are some popular restaurants known not only for their food, but for their presentation, décor, and atmosphere. Although some may label these restaurants as overrated, they are definitely places you should try at least once!

1. Sugar Factory

Located in NY's meat packing district, this is the perfect birthday location for anyone who is a child at heart! Besides having delicious food, this place is known especially for its massive bubbly drinks. Don't forget to try some of the many different types of waffles and ice cream. Many celebrities have made a stop here, including Kendall and Kylie Jenner.


2. Max Brenner

Did somebody say chocolate? If you're a chocolate lover, this is the place for you. With dishes like chocolate pizza, chocolate syringes, milkshakes and fondue you'll never want to stop eating, this is a great place for any occasion!

3. Serendipity

This sweet little spot is known for their incredible frozen hot chocolate, and Serendipity is a popular tourist location for celebrities as well. With a broad menu of delicious food, and a plethora of frozen drinks, visiting this restaurant is a must.

4. Rice to Riches

I was always hesitant to try rice pudding until I tried Rice to Riches, and was pleasantly surprised at how completely delicious it was. With all different flavors, like cookies and cream and caramel, you won't want to stop eating! Besides having delicious rice pudding, the decor of this restaurant is on point with it's hysterical signs all over the walls. A few of my personal favorites are "If you want to look young and thin...hang out with old and fat people," and "Eat all you want, you're already fat."

5. Ellen's Stardust Diner

This is the perfect place to stop at, before a Broadway show. Ellen's Stardust Diner will get you pumped up! Designed after a 1950's diner, this place's specialty is the atmosphere, which includes singing waitresses. You'll have a blast singing along to your favorite Broadway classics, while munching on some great food!

Being an only child gives you some rather unique perspectives about life. While some might think it's a lonely and solemn experience, being an only child has it's perks.

1. You talk to yourself, like, a LOT.

If you're an only child and have ever been concerned by your ability to carry on deep conversations with yourself, just know that you're not alone. First of all, everyone talks to themselves, and anyone who claims not to is most likely lying. Second, when you grow up without siblings to bounce your ideas off of or to help you make sense of your emotions you're on your own to carve out an understanding of the things.

2. Your parents are a little overprotective

One thing you realize as you get older is that if you don't have any brothers or sisters, your parents may have been a just a little overprotective. Without any older children to set the standard for what is and isn't acceptable, your parents may have sheltered you out of fear of giving you too much freedom. While their undivided attention is nice in most situations, it's definitely unwelcome when you want to start dating.

3. You're not fond of sharing.

When you've grown up without ever competing for attention, space, or the last cookie, learning how to share comes as sort of rude awakening. While you recognize that there are times when offering a small portion of what you have is courteous and that you have to share to be a functioning member of society, you also revel in the fact that when you go home you have everything to yourself.

4. You don't mind being alone

Another aspect of growing up as an only child is learning how to play alone when you're little and being comfortable in your solitude later on in life. While parents are grateful for this trait when their children are young, as you get older you'll come to value it more as well. Going to new places and events by yourself doesn't intimidate you the way it does to some people for the simple fact that you're used to. While it is nice to bring friends with you on adventures, there certain things best experienced alone.

5. Getting ALL the presents for Christmas

Arguably the best part of life as an only child is Christmas. When you're the only one your parent have to spend money on - excuse me, the only child in your family that Santa has to bring presents to- you rack up.
