Summer time: when the bikini body comes out to play complemented by your new “clean eating” program.
But, when it comes to the point in the week when grilled chicken is testing your wits, dive into one of these TT-approved food options that will reset your hunger hormones by giving you a damn good cheat day.
A burger at J.G. Melon
Did you know the burgers here are Gigi Hadid’s favorite? After trying them out myself, I can see why. The are big, perfectly grilled and to-the-point. The fries are great, too. With a small menu, it’s clear that this American eatery specializes in its burger.
Ice cream from I CE NY
While the taste isn’t anything spectacular, the rolled-up ice cream from I CE NY looks too cool to miss. This Thai ice cream shop pours your preferred flavor on a freezing flat surface before scrapping it into six scrolls. What’s matter? You get to mix whatever the heck ya want into it. I mixed brownie crumble into mine and then topped it with M&Ms and whipped cream. #yas
French Toast at The Butcher’s Daughter
There are many reasons why New Yorkers fawn over NoLiTa grub hub The Butcher’s Daughter, but I know one of them for sure: the 7-Grain French toast. The bread is thick and comes topped with fresh fruit and a side of pure maple syrup: absolutely scrumptious. What brought this breakfast game to the next level was the raw hot cacao I ordered with it.
A breakfast sandwich at Broadway Bagel
Walk a block from your apartment and I guarantee you’ll pass a corner bakery serving up monstrous breakfast sandwiches like this one. My corner bakery (kind of) happens to be Broadway Bagel on the Upper West Side which doesn’t skimp on what comes in your b-fast sammie. I usually go for an everything bagel with egg, cheese, and ham.
Because you’re in New York–the only place in the country known for its bagels–I definitely recommend committing to a sandwich like this on your next cheat day.
