7 NYC Date Ideas for Foodies, One For Everyday of the Week
New York is heaven for self-described foodies and amateur Instagrammers, thanks to the variety of excellent cuisine across NYC's five boroughs. If you've found your soulmate-or at least another food lover-it's likely that you already center your dates around perfectly crafted lattes and ornately arranged brunches. To mix things up, try these date ideas for NYC foodie adventures.

Breakfast for dinner, forever.

Too hungover to wake up and go to brunch? No problem. With New York's fine array of dining options, there are so many excellent places to devour breakfast food at dinnertime. At Clinton St. Baking Company, gorge on their infamous warm maple butter pancakes-but only after an unusually long wait time, even by New York's standards. You can also head to Veselka for some Ukrainian-American breakfast delights or Chelsea's iconic Empire Diner to enjoy anything from their menu at any time.

Which do you want more: Chinese or Italian food? Or, better yet, both?
