New York may be filled with high-end dining and drinks establishments, but you don’t have to order an entire three-course meal. There’s nothing wrong with enjoying a Cappuccino or a cocktail and leaving the food menus to one side.
However, if you have had some luck with lottery gambling or are feeling a little flush, don’t be afraid to treat yourself to lunch or dinner in one of the most Instagram-worthy eateries. Pietro NoLita is one of them, with an interior covered pink from top to toe. It serves up Italian inspired food and drink but looks like a princess’s palace. It’s will delight your taste buds just as much as it will your Instagram feed.

It’s a quirky neighborhood loved for its meandering cobbled streets and stylish loft apartments. However, it’s gazing opportunity to admire the Manhattan Bridge, and Empire State Building is the most common reason people visit.
If you want to bring some amazing food into your Instagram location shots, there’s a cute pizza place called the Nearby Front Street Pizza right next to the views.
