G. Garvin’s New York City Travel Guide

Me and Double Wide's Christen Hagan

There are plenty of reasons to visit the Big Apple, the food scene being just one of them. There are thousands of restaurants in New York City. Obviously, you can’t visit them all, so my advice is to pick a few in different neighborhoods; that way you can explore the city and have different dining experiences.

Bell Book & Candle
Chef John Mooney’s created something special in Bell Book & Candle. The West Village is filled with romantic places perfect for a date, and his restaurant is no exception. The rooftop garden guarantees you’re getting the freshest produce possible, and the space is as imaginative as the menu.

Mighty Quinn’s Barbeque
If a New Yorker waits in line, you know it’s worth it! Hugh Mangum brings Texas–style barbecue to the East Village in a modern space. As soon as you step in, the smell from the smoker hits you and makes your mouth water. Sides like the sweet potato casserole are a must when digging into the brisket.

Double Wide
Owner Christen Hagan has created a Southern getaway in the East Village at Double Wide. The drinks are creative and nostalgic, and the tasty bar food pairs perfectly with them. Double Wide doesn’t take itself too seriously, making it a great bar for a fun night.

City Grit
For something unforgettable, check out City Grit. It’s a new concept in Manhattan, a “culinary salon” featuring unique dinners with Southern style, hosted by chefs. Every night is a different dining experience. There’s limited seating, so it’s something you need to book in advance.

Margie’s Red Rose Diner
This is a no-nonsense Southern spot in Harlem that is truly off the beaten path. Their menu features all classically Southern dishes in a relaxed setting. A few favorites include the mac ‘n’ cheese, fried whiting and lemonade pie. It’s home away from home!

Bobwhite Lunch & Supper Counter
Bobwhite combines a New York bistro-style layout with good ol’ Southern cooking. It’s located in Alphabet City and is great for a quick bite. Their fried chicken tops the local lists, and their fresh salads and delicious pecan pie bread pudding have earned a lot of attention.

    If you’re twenty-two, physically fit, hungry to learn and be better, I urge you to travel – as far and as widely as possible. Sleep on floors if you have to. Find out how other people live and eat and cook. Learn from them – wherever you go.

    Now more than ever do I realize that I will never be content with a sedentary life, that I will always be haunted by thoughts of a sun-drenched elsewhere.

    Foreign lands never yield their secrets to a traveller. The best they offer are tantalising snippets, just enough to inflame the imagination. The secrets they do reveal are your own – the ones you have kept from yourself. And this is reason enough to travel, to leave home.

    One must travel, to learn. Every day, now, old Scriptural phrases that never possessed any significance for me before, take to themselves a meaning.

    I lack the imagination. For that reason I have to pack, stuff into my pockets odds and ends, passport, money, and go see what it's really like. Whenever the time of year or the weather changes, I have to pack up whatever I can't do without and visit all those places I've been before, to make sure they still exist.
