Walking Photo Tours and Street Photography Workshops in NYC

Discover New York City

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. I have eaten in restaurants and had coffee in cafes that I had thought that I would write about.


Fat Cat Kitchen, East Village, Manhattan

I haven't eaten here yet! But I did have food from Fat Cat Kitchen at a catered event. It was fabulous food and I will be going back to eat there. It's in a little storefront and they have a counter where you can eat in or you can take out. Union Square Park is just a few blocks away across 14th Street. The owner is originally from Stockholm and his creations are yummy and the cuisine is sandwiches, salads and desserts.
