There is one thing that all NYU students seem to agree on: New York City has a wide selection of dining options that are sure to please even the rarest tastes. From Italian and Thai to a restaurant that boasts an all-peanut butter menu, if you want it, you can have it in NYC. Students dine in the Village and Union Square when they want great food close to campus, and other popular favorites include downtown at Mulberry Street (Little Italy) and Chinatown.
Even if you made it your life's mission, you could never eat at all the restaurants in NYC. Options range from Halal street carts to 24-hour diners to five-star formal affairs—there are always more than enough choices. Some students choose to try new places every day, sampling the city’s selection, while others choose to become regulars and stick to their favorite spots. One thing is sure, eating in NYC is always an adventure. With new places opening left and right, there are always new surprises to be had. Plus, with most restaurants in the area offering discounts to NYU students, you can't go wrong!
