It has been way to long since I visited NY. Luckily a work project brought me to the city. I stayed in Brooklyn Heights neighborhood of Brooklyn. Some highlights.
Iris Café- Brooklyn Heights

simple breakfast spot, just 2 blocks from my friends brownstone in Brooklyn Heights. Must try the avocado toasts with egg and homemake ricotta on english muffins drizzled with honey.

Sometimes in New York you just need a quick snack or light bite. This is one of the best markets in the whole city. It is the ideal casual spot, there’s a mix of cuisines and something for everyone–from fresh pasta and pizzas to sushi, mediterranean, thai, mexican. Right around the corner from the Highline, Chelsea Markets and the Whitney. It’s also just a great spot to sit back and enjoy a cappuccino after an afternoon of shopping to people watch.
Rumor has it this place will be closing winter 2016
