I wake up each day knowing exactly what I want to eat and where I want to eat it. My life is driven by cravings! In 2005, I launched this website to share the best places to satiate them.
Cravings is a guide to all cravings, gastronomic and otherwise. A review of New York City foods, drinks, culture and travel, the site judges specific dishes, experiences and destinations.
Searching for a good burger or the best soba in town? Cravings pinpoints the best among a wide variety of dishes and cuisines, rather than just what is trending right now. Browse or search in your neighborhood or venture out of your comfort zone — either way, we will lead you to the best.
The Cheng Sisters, Celia and Cynthia, are your guides to Cravings. The reviews are based on the palates and personal tastes of our team.
If you’d like a reminder to savor our features from the week, please sign up to receive our newsletter by scrolling to the bottom of the page.
We hope you enjoy the site!
