New Black Selection by Alex

Every Friday, New Black store manager Alex Urombi, picks his favourite things right now. Anything from clothes and accessories to hotels, restaurants and new music.

Favourite restaurants in NYC:

1. Miss Lily’s: If you’re into Jamaican cuisine, Miss Lily’s will not disappoint. They have two super cozy restaurants on Manhattan, one in Soho and the other in East Village. Great food and nice drinks with a Caribbean twist!
2. Cafe Habana: Located in NoLita, this is a super popular spot for New Yorkers and visitors, serving authentic Mexican and Cuban food. People line up for their extremely popular grilled corn. Do not miss this if you’re in NYC!
3. Bar Pitti: Authentic Italian restaurant in West Village with insanely delicious pasta. Small menu, but really good dishes. A small menu is usually a good sign in my opinion. Bar Pitti is a popular spot among celebs so don’t be suprised if you spot a famous face or two.
4. Joe’s Pizza: Pizza slice and NYC go together like peanut butter and jam. Joe’s Pizza on 14th Street is a well known pizza slice spot. After a long day of walking on Manhattan there are not many things that beat a slice to go from Joe’s.
