Oyster Half Dozen: The Best NYC Hotels for Foodies

by Rachel on June 15, 2012

Listen up, non-New Yorkers: The Big Apple is the greatest city in the world. And not just because we’re headquartered here. (Ok, well maybe a little.) But New York has more to offer than the glittering lights of Times Square or the chic shops lining SoHo’s streets — it also has one of the greatest food scenes in the entire world. Especially in some of the city’s best hotels. So keeping our palate (and hungry belly) in mind, check out our six favorite NYC hotels fit for the most picky of foodies. Chow down!

This is just bizarre and lazy. A person who comes to New York for its restaurant culture hopefully has more ambition than going downstairs. There is no special benefit to staying in the hotels that house these restaurants other than having less money to spend on food. Why not focus on neighborhoods, and give people advice on a boutique place near a cluster of unique spots to eat? Then again, I don’t think I’ve ever encountered an actual New Yorker who would call her city “the Big Apple.”

And please, stop fostering this Yankee-hat-wearing, chest-beating culture of “greatest city in the world nonsense.” It’s a city. With good and bad points, and hyperbole doesn’t do anything but indicate lazy thoughts and lazy writing.

(Also, citing Times Square and SoHo as support for that statement makes you sound like a tourist. Just sayin’.)
