Tasting New York City with Christian Torres

It’s a new year in New York City and we’re ready to keep wining and dining through the boroughs. Who better to show us around than local creative, photographer, and purveyor of good vibes Christian Torres?

Christian is an architecture and interior design photographer based in New York City and Hudson Valley. His photography has been featured by the likes of Architectural Digest, Domino, and Thrillist and he’s worked with a range of clients including West Elm, Airbnb, and now Sonder. Check out his top spots in the city below.

What’s on the menu?

Saraghina Caffè (Bed-Stuy)
Our mainstay restaurant, where we always take friends and family when they’re in town.  Come for the pizza, stay for the vibe. 

Sante Fe BK (Williamsburg)
I love a spot that only does like 5 things but absolutely nails them.  Best breakfast burrito in town. Go early.

The Commodore (Williamsburg)
The old faithful.  One of the first places I was brought to when I moved to NYC 13 years ago and still as solid as it’s ever been. Order yourself a hot breast and a commodore and you’ll be all set. 

What’s your poison?

Bar Goto (LES)
It took me way too long to find out about this place.  Superior cocktails and tasty Japanese bar snacks — the Kombu celery is silly addictive. 

Forgtmenot (LES)
I feel like ForgtMeNot was specifically designed for me.  An affordable and friendly surf-shack full of skateboarders who love watching soccer.  

Sey Coffee (Bushwick)
I’m not saying you should drop $30 on a cup of coffee, but, if you wanted to, this is where you do it.

What’s your one must-see spot in the city?

CT: I always recommend people check out The Turk’s Inn.  The owners essentially rebuilt the beloved Wisconsin supper club in the heart of Bushwick, complete with the original bar and zany interior decor.  The restaurant is terrific, plus they’ve got a fun rooftop garden and the adjacent Sultan Room is one of my favorite little music venues in the city.
