New York......again and from previous visits! Part 6

Yet another bar I am going to write about, know there has been a lot of bar talk here now, but it kind of never ends, so I'm going to make it quick and just say that this is yet another Irish bar, like the other 1000 you can find in NY. This night we had a couple of drinks at O'Reilly's.









As you might have understood there is loads of places where they have great beer, thats what they normally have at bars and pubs. But every now and then you would like to have a drink or a cocktail. Now this is probably not the place you would have thought would have one of the best, but it actually is. Hooters! Yes, Hooters, not all about the boobies, they do have great wings and some really good long drinks. And yes, I have been there a few times, not only in New York either. My husband really likes going there, he say it's because of the wings......... Ha ha ha, I can't stop laughing, the girls working there are normally very good looking, and they are very nice so it is fun to go there even though you are a group of boys, girls, a couple, a group of friends or whatever.















The last time I was there, me and my 8 friends from Norway, we had all these plans to go to a fancy restaurant that be had been in touch with before we left for NY. But as we never ever got that final confirmation that we had a table with champagne waiting for our arrival (you had to buy something like this in order to actually get a table), we decided that Hooters was the second best thing for us at the time.We loved the drinks ;)










It's not only bars I have been to in New York, I have been to a few restaurants as well, believe it or not. One place we stopped by just to get some lunch and it turned out that it was a great little restaurant. Never heard about it, but it was called Todd'd Mill and it is located on 162 Orchard street.









Yeah, had to have some mimosa with our lunch, and as we were three girls wanting it, our waiter suggested we have a pitcher, great choice.  



I have never been very good at arranging dinners, making reservations and all that, in advance, so we have just walked into places a lot of times. And when we were walking around in the Financial District, had been shopping at Century 21 and looking at the new World Trade Center we found a very good French place. But first, just a picture of the new World Trade Center, it is very spectacular and very different from the twin tower. 





As you see, still under construction, but soon to be finished. Maybe it is done when I go there in September! Will check it out.


Anyway, back to the French restaurant, Brasserie Les Halles.









It was time for a good steak and some good wine. The food was good and so was the wine. In fact, I forgot to take pictures, thats how busy we were with our food and wine. If you are looking for a French restaurant and you are around the area you should try thi. It is not very cheap but reasonable enough. If you want good wine and a good steak you know you will have to pay a bit more than what you do when you eat pub grub for instance. 




When I was in NY with my 8 friends in May, we did manage to make dinner reservations before we left Norway. The only thing was that it was very hard to get into some decent, known places and even though we managed to get a table it was very late, 10.45 pm. We all agreed that we would go for this place and I think we all are very happy we did. We went to Ninja.













A dinner reservation at that time and we had just flew in from Norway that day. As I have been to New York a few times I knew the humor I was going to be in, but I don't know if the others were aware of what state they would be in. We had so much fun, we were a little tipsy and over tired and jetlaged and we just laughed at everything. And got frightened from everything, because that is what they do at Ninja, get you a little jumpy every now and then. 












The food was great and the presentation was very funny. The people who wanted steak got it flambé and cocked at the table, if you got the salad you had to go all Ninja on it.








Ninja is definitely a restaurant you should go to. You get the good food and the "show" at the same time. Without revealing to much I can only say that the staff go out of their way to scare you, they are true ninjas who really knows how to sneak up on you. I don't think I have laughed so much in a restaurant my entire life, we had such a great experience, even though we were so tired and jetlaged. 







When it comes to restaurants we are back to the, I never can make a reservation so we just have to walk until we find something. Done that so many times. But there was one time when, well we didn't have any reservations, but I have heard about a place that were supposed to be very good and the kitchen was open until 2 am. The place is called The Spotted Pig. It's located in the West Village on 314 w 11th street, right on the corner, so it is easy to find. 







The only thing was that since we didn't have a reservation and there was no available tables when we got there, we were told there would be about one hour waiting time. That was a little bit too long for us, but then the waiting time was cut down to about 30 minutes. As everybody  was really hungry we had to find another place to eat. We might have regretted that later when we wanted to have an after dinner drink in a cool, nice bar. Anyway we found a place with decent food just right down the street from The Spotted Pig.  






It's suppose to be a quality restaurant and they were very nice with us as we came really late and they decided to reopen the kitchen for us (they were about to close the kitchen when we walked in the door). The food was nice and the place was very quiet, that's probably because it was so late, might be a little more lively when it is earlier in the evening and more people in the restaurant.
