Discover New York City is a guide to the local independent businesses that are the heart and soul of NYC. Support indie businesses!

I love the independent businesses in New York, they are the heart and soul of the city! In this section you will find bookstores, cafés, restaurants, arts & crafts markets and more. It's an ongoing project to list the best of indie New York so visit often to discover the real New York City. Note - I am not compensated for writing these reviews and I'm only writing about the places that I like.


Cafe Chili, Cobble Hill, Brooklyn

Cafe Chili is a cute little Thai restaurant with really yummy food. The day that we ate there the garden was open in the back and the atmosphere was fabulous. I had a red curry dish which is my favorite and we also had a Thai bread which was new to me and was really great. They are very friendly and the prices are nice too. Cobble Hill is easy to get to a nice neighborhood in NYC.
