Let’s face it, there is no bad time to visit New York City. Manhattan is a good idea, no matter when you decide to come. It just depends on why you want to visit or if you enjoy crowds or perhaps you like to enjoy a bit of peace (hard to find in this city that doesn’t sleep). With 2016 coming to a close and the fantasies of 2017 nearing, we know you all want to get a head start booking your city escape! But when is the best time? That’s the question! You can come during fashion week (oh! the clothes!), or maybe US Open (got to LOVE tennis), there is also shopper’s weekends (crowds, crowds, crowds!) Whatever blows your hair back, we want to make sure you get the most out of your trip.

After a long day of sight seeing on a cold New York day, there is nothing better than settling into a warm inviting booth at Tony’s DiNapoli. Tony’s serves up some of the best Old New York Italian favorites right next door to the Casablanca . This year it won the Open Table Diners’ Choice Award and for good reason!
