Any alternatives to juice and coffee in New York? Definitely yes. New Yorkers should feel lucky to have places dedicated to this finely grounded powder. Matcha is considered as a healthy booster, because of the high level of antioxydant without the inflammatory effect of coffee on your stomach. I tried two different places, the first one was in West Village – Chalait and the other place was in Brooklyn: Matcha Bar.
If you have matcha for the first time, the taste may be bitter so do not hesitate to add a sweetener like agave syrup.
Address: Chalait – 224 West 4th Street and Matcha Bar – 93, Wythe Ave, Brooklyn

For those who live in Manhattan, venturing in Brooklyn seems to require more effort and you don’t see why you have to go on the opposite side of the river. Plus, you think you have everything in Manhattan, why bother going so far? If you discover places such as Maison Premiere, I’m sure Brooklyn will become a more familiar area. I really wanted to try American oysters, and was told that Maison Premiere was the appropriate place. They have an Oyster Happy hour, which means that these gems are at 1-1,25$ each between 5 to 7 o’clock.
