Eating and Drinking
—81% of Gothamites think our city has amazing dining options, and almost three quarters of you said the same of the bar scene. No wonder you eat out an average of 41 times a year.
—We order more delivery than any other city in the world, with 62% of us having done so in the last week.
—30% of Chicagoans and 27% of New Yorkers agree: If forced to choose, pizza would be the dish they scarf every day. (We get it, Chicago: You’re devoted to deep-dish. Can we please talk about something else?)
→ New Yorkers are, of course, workhorses, so it makes sense that we eat our lunch at our desks 39 times per year, more than any other U.S. city. But that’s not because we hustle the most—we work the same hours per week on average (44) as Boston, Miami, San Francisco and Washington, D.C.
—Only 27% of New Yorkers say they'd wait more than an hour for a table.
—New York’s top 5 neighborhoods for eating and drinking:
