Seeples-Recommended Restaurants for Every Occasion

If you want more information as you’re starting the 2019 application, you can find us at these grad school fairs. We also encourage prospective students to visit campus to get more information on the application process and experience what student life in NYC would be like.

NYC and student culture intersects on food. SIPA students compiled a list of 18 restaurant favorites for every occasion, from dates to taking your family out. A few top picks?

  • Good for Friends: Dinosaur Bar-B-Que. “The best place for a big group, eat lots of meat and drink cold pitchers of beer. The service is warm and friendly, prices are reasonable by NYC standards, and the place is just generally fun. Must try: Deliciously juicy wings, brisket and the St. Louis pork ribs.”
  • Good for Drinks: Ellington In The Park. “Best for day drinking in nice weather.”
  • Cheap eats: The halal cart on 116th and Amsterdam in front of Columbia Law School. Oddly specific, but the numerous food carts around Columbia campus don’t always show up in an internet search. Our students recommend this halal cart for a cheap, convenient and delicious meal.

Brooklyn Hotspots: Tips from an off-campus student

One of the coolest parts about living in New York City is exploring all the city has to offer throughout the five boroughs. As a student who lives off campus in Brooklyn I often get questions from fellow SIPA students about places they should check out when they venture in to my borough. Brooklyn is the most populous boroughs of NYC and the second largest by land mass. I couldn’t possibly tell you about all of the interesting things to do in Brooklyn, but I will try to highlight some of my favorite places. If you’re traveling to NYC this holiday season, here are some “must see” places to check out.

Local Eats Miniseries: The Outer Boroughs

Alas, it’s our final post on our favorite restaurants throughout NYC. We’ve covered Columbia University spots and Manhattan joints. So today, we’re focusing on restaurants throughout the four outer boroughs. Why did we combine them all into one post? Well, we find that when you’re reliant on public transportation, you tend to stick to areas you know best (such as CU and Manhattan). Plus, there are hundreds of amazing food options in Manhattan alone, so it may be a while before you fully explore outer-borough cuisines.
