One of the most exciting parts about having an all-new cast for The Real Housewives of New York City Season 14? We get to explore entirely new parts of NYC. 

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of New York City on Peacock and catch up on the Bravo app

RHONY Season 14 will “follow an all-new group of seven dynamic women who run in the same social circles, thriving in one of the most diverse and electric cities in the world. From fashion and real estate, to philanthropy and social influence, these women have made their mark in NYC and will now share their lives as they juggle careers, family life, and jam-packed social calendars in the city that never sleeps,” according to a press release.

The new Housewives, which include Jenna Lyons, Brynn Whitfield, Erin Lichy, Sai De Silva, Ubah Hassan, and Jessel Taank, are all deeply familiar with New York and as a result, they know the best places to hang out in the city. So, we're taking a look at some of their favorite places to eat, shop, drink, and visit in NYC for some travel inspiration of our own.

Here are just a few of the Housewives-approved hot spots in New York City.

Ground Support

Looking for a good place to get coffee? Jenna Lyons resides in the Soho neighborhood of New York City, and she's already claimed one coffee spot in particular as her usual favorite.

In an interview with The Regular, she explained, "When I pick up a coffee, my go-to spot is Ground Support here in SoHo. They’ve been my absolute pandemic savior ... I get an iced latte – always. No matter if it’s 18 or 75 degrees out ... When it’s warm out, I sit outside, take in the morning coffee goers, and catch up with email."


One of the most famous restaurants in Brooklyn is undoubtedly Lilia. Located in a converted auto shop in Williamsburg, the Italian eatery is so famous for its homemade pasta it can be difficult to land a reservation. It's also a favorite of Jenna Lyons', who name-checked Lilia as one of her usual spots for date night with her son in her The Regular interview.

Il Cantinori

When it was time for Erin Dana Lichy to celebrate her husband's 40th birthday, she turned to a delicious Italian hot spot in the city: Il Cantinori. The gorgeous West Village eatery serves Tuscan-style dishes and boasts an incredible wine list. The restaurant, which has been around for decades, is known to attract celebrities, Eater reports.


Looking for style inspiration? Erin is known for her fashion sense, and a store she's noted to frequent is Nomia. Nomia describes itself as a "sophisticated yet minimalist collection influenced by art, architecture, utilitarian workwear and the juxtaposition of masculine and feminine [that] exemplifies the complexity of modern style."

There's an outpost in Williamsburg for those who like to shop in person.

The Nines

Brynn Whitfield celebrated her birthday in February of last year at a popular restaurant in the city: The Nines. Not only can you get upscale treats like caviar and unique cocktails at this romantic lounge, but you can listen to live music every night here. Basically, The Nines, which is located in Noho, is the ideal spot for a date night or intimate celebration.

Central Park

It's a must-visit for anyone coming to the city and perhaps one of the most famous parks in the world: Central Park. Tourists and locals alike love this massive green space, which has multiple lawns, lakes, and attractions inside it.

Brynn even posted a video of herself walking through Central Park with the caption, "Home is where the heart is." It's a common sentiment for many New Yorkers when they visit this area!

Brooklyn Bridge Park

Sai De Silva was born in Los Angeles, California but moved to New York City as a young child. As a result, she describes herself as "a Brooklyn girl at heart." Naturally, that means she knows the best spots to visit in the neighborhood, and pointed to Brooklyn Bridge Park as one her favorite places in the borough in an interview with The Outnet. 

Sai emphasized it's a great spot to take children — which makes sense as the waterfront park has plenty of lawn space, a roller rink, volleyball courts, playgrounds, and truly incredible skyline views, among other amenities.


Brooklyn Bridge Park is not the only Brooklyn recommendation Sai has. She also raved about a "great Italian restaurant" in Dumbo in the same interview: Cecconi’s. Much like the park, this Italian eatery has great waterfront views. However, it also has fancy cocktails and delicious pastas, pizzas, and seafood. It's the perfect place to visit for a drink or a meal after a day spent in the park.

Physique 57

People do a lot of walking in New York City, but that doesn't mean you can't fit a good workout class in, either. There are plenty of incredible fitness studios in the city, including boutiques and nationwide chains that teach people every kind of exercise imaginable.

For Ubah Hassan, her workout of choice is Physique 57, a barre studio located in Soho. The fitness class is a mixture of ballet, yoga, and Pilates and utilizes many small, repetitive movements to keep bodies toned and strong. 


Eating food that's both healthy and delicious is also important for Ubah (after all, she has her own hot sauce line!). One restaurant in particular she raves about is Beatnic, a plant-based eatery with multiple locations throughout the city.

"Y’all, I think I am becoming a vegan without my permission. @eatbeatnic you have the most delicious food. This is not #Ad," she captioned an Instagram video of her enjoying what looks to be an incredible sandwich.

It's a spot that pulls in vegans and non-vegans alike with its creative and tasty dishes.

Casa Mono

If you want to see Jessel Taank out and about, you might want to consider visiting Casa Mono, which she described as her usual lunch spot on Instagram. One look at the menu and you can see why she loves to visit Casa Mono. The Spanish restaurant, which you can find in Gramercy, boasts incredible small plates and an extensive wine list.


Another NYC restaurant Jessel has visited recently, Sona is known for its Indian food. The eatery, located in the Flatiron District, "reimagines the wonders of Indian fare in a space that evokes a bygone era of a boisterous yet elegant India—all within the heart of New York City," according to its website. If you'd like a creative and upscale take on Indian food in a gorgeous spot, Sona is the spot for you.
