Things to check out in New York if you love Shoreditch

If in London Shoreditch is your kind of place, there are plenty of places you will love in New York.

As mentioned in another post, Williamsburg is New York’s Shoreditch. Have breakfast at the Ange Noir Café on Varet Street. It makes amazing porridge with honey, nuts and seasonal fruit as well as kale smoothies.

For dinner, try out Momo’s Sushi Shack on Bogart Street, inside what looks like a garage converted into a restaurant. Its interesting twists on sushi dishes – like the veggie sushi with cream cheese – are the perfect way to start a night out.

For drinks head out to the Bushwick’s Living Room in Flushing avenue. Try the Brooklyn Bridge cocktail and the quinoa salad – massive! – or the burgers.

If you’re feeling more adventurous, brave the fear and enter the East Village’s Lovecraft Café in Alphabet City, on number 50 Avenue B. As a tribute to the horror master H.P. Lovecraft, it offers alcoholic infusions that will make you see monsters.

For a spicier day, head out to 5th Avenue and enjoy the Museum of Sex‘s temporary exhibitions on sex amongst animals and on Linda Lovelace, as well as the permanent one displaying, amongst other things, a dress entirely made out of condoms. Then relax with a drink at the museum’s own cocktail bar, Play.

Per la cena fate un salto alla Momo’s Sushi Shack, un garage di Bogart Street diventato ristorante con interessanti varianti al solito menu di sushi. Provate il sushi vegetariano col formaggio!

Per i cocktail passate per la Bushwick’s Living Room di Flushing Avenue. Provate il Brooklyn Bridge cocktail e l’enorme insalata di quinoa.

Se invece vi sentite piú avventurosi, avventuratevi dentro al Lovecraft Bar di Alphabet City nell’East Village, al numero 50 dell’Avenue B. Ispirato ai romanzi del grande H.P. Lovecraft, il locale offre infusioni alcoliche da mettere i brividi.

Per una giornata con un po’piú di pepe, visitate il Museum of Sex di 5th Avenue, che ha in serbo mostre itineranti – tra cui quelle sul sesso tra animali e quella su Linda Lovelace – insieme alla storia dei sex toys. Rilassatevi al bar del museo, play, con una serie di cocktail coi fiocchi.
