Listopedia: Pretty in Pink New York
It’s no secret that McKean Studio loves the colour pink. Any shade, any time, any place – you can never have too much of a good thing. We were in New York over Valentine’s Day this year, a city that really doesn’t do things by halves, and boy does this city do pink! If you’re planning a romantic getaway, or just have an eye for colour, check out our Listopedia of New York’s pinkest places to visit.
You’ve probably seen it all over your Instagram and Facebook feed; the cutest, pinkest restaurant to pop up in Nolita is Pietro. It’s not just the exterior, either; the inside of Pietro Nolita is wall-to-wall pink. Think a little retro (imagine a diner decorated solely in pastel) meets a lot of pink. Serving up meals round the clock – breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner and cocktails – Pietro Nolita is tiny but packs a punch. 174 Elizabeth Street, New York
The Lucky Bee
Fans of Sydney’s Longrain Restaurant will already love The Lucky Bee, given its head chef used to man the kitchens at Sydney’s favourite Asian fusion restaurant. This cute spot is a ‘family style, Southeast Asian’ restaurant in the Lower East Side. Electric pink and teal decor with a lot of custom neon lights make this a spot to soak up and take in. Share-style plates and an impressive list of cocktails guarantees a delicious and fun night that goes towards raising funds for the New York City Beekeepers Association. Several of the cocktails even feature local nectar, so you can feel good about the buzz you’ll get after a visit to The Lucky Bee! 252 Broome Street, New York
Carthage Must Be Destroyed
The Brooklyn outpost of beloved Alexandria cafe Bread & Circus brings a taste of Sydney to New York, with a similar menu and the same Aussies who know how to make you a proper flat white. Set inside a huge open plan brick building, Carthage Must Be Destroyed has the same signature pink plates and serving ware as the Aussie original. It’s a little tricky to find – but if you make it to the right block and can spot the pink exhaust vents from the outside, you’re at the right place! Open for breakfast and lunch seven days a week, if you’re in Brooklyn and craving smashed avo or a good latte, consider this a dependable stop in. 222 Bogart St, Brooklyn
Scoops of raw cookie dough, served like gelato? This brand new store routinely sees wait times of up to four hours – that’s people standing in line, down a full NYC block, in single digit temperatures waiting to get their hands on cookie dough. Move our Cronut, Dō is giving Dominic Ansel a serious run for his money in the sweets stakes. There are 12 novelty flavours to choose from, including a classic chocolate chip, cake batter or brownie batter, with additional toppings also available. The cookie dough is made with pasteurised eggs and served slightly chilled, so it’s safe to eat – but also able to take home to bake (if you can hold off on eating it for that long)! 550 LaGuardia Place, New York
This Lower East Side sweet spot is a passion project from André Saraiva, the graffiti artist turned hotelier and restaurant owner. His graffiti alter ego ‘Mr A’ has artwork available for purchase all around Café Henrie. Pink menus, quirky ceramics and an amazing pastel Empire State Building light up sculpture in the window. Magnifique! Best for brunch, or a late afternoon snack and caffeine hit. 116 Forsyth St, New York
