10 NYC Restaurants You Should Order From Right Now

The Corona Virus has negatively impacted the restaurant industry to the extent that many beloved spots are on the brink of closure. Why not sacrifice ordering from a mega fast-food chain for one night to instead help out a local restaurant? The owners, your appetite, and your taste buds will thank you later.

1. Gyro King

1017 Foster Ave, Brooklyn

I am a huge fan of South Asian food and Gyro Kings' wide array of kebabs, falafels, and of course, gyro, is one of the best I have ever tried. My personal favorite is the classic chicken over rice with extra white sauce and salad on the side.


2. Up Thai

1411 2nd Ave, Manhattan

If you are looking for top of the line Thai food, Up Thai is the place to go. Though right now isn't the time to go inside and experience the beautiful decor and cute lanterns, you can still enjoy their magnificent Pad Thai, pineapple fried rice, or Thai Tea from the comfort of your own home.


3. La Mitad Del Mundo

10410 Roosevelt Ave, Queens

This next restaurant is one of the best when it comes to Ecuadorian food. If you are in the area I highly recommend their Sopa De Mariscos.


4. Elena's

55 West Tremont Ave, Bronx

If Mexican food is more your fancy, then Elena's got you covered. Their Tostadas are muy deliciosa and definitely worth trying.


5. Bay House Bistro

574 Bay Street, Staten Island

If you are looking for an amazing Asian fusion restaurant, Bay House Bistro is your place. From dozens of different flavored teas to multiple different types of sushi to a plethora of other delectable meals and desserts, Bay House is full of appetizing meals that'll leave you coming back for more. Their sushi is one of my personal favorites.


6. Retro Grill

2556 Coney Island Ave, Brooklyn

If you are in the mood for classic American food, Retro Grill has dozens of options. This kosher eatery can satisfy any burger craving with their Crunchy Chicken Sandwich. Plus, they are home to my favorite corn dogs in all of NYC.


7. Bleecker Street Pizza

69 7th Ave S, Manhattan

New York just isn't complete without its dozens of pizza places, and from my experience, Bleeckers is one of the best. Their cheap prices and large slices make it my go-to pizza spot. The Neapolitan slices are my preferred meal.


8. Lucky Star

1924 Cross Bronx Expy, Bronx

This Chinese place offers delicious food at great prices. The owners are also so sweet and really could use help during this difficult time. My food of choice is the steamed dumplings and fried rice with jumbo shrimp.


9. Island Coffee Shop

407 Manor Road, Staten Island

This small local diner is the perfect place to grab some breakfast/lunch. Not only is their coffee great, but their BLT, burgers, turkey, and eggs are just as good. This small eatery is truly a “local" business and it could really use your support!


10. Mela's Cafe & Restaurant

71-02 Kissena Blvd, Queens

This small and cozy restaurant offers yummy Spanish food and great drinks. The employees are so sweet and the Chuletas are, in my opinion, the best.


While NYC is known for its massive chains and well-known restaurants, it is important to note that some of the best food comes from the smallest places. If you can please help support these local businesses and any others around you it will help them stay open. Order today!
