Six Places To Eat & Drink Outside Of Panorama NYC

Panorama NYC
Panorama NYC is only weeks away, and we’ve scoured the city that never sleeps for some of the best ways to spend your down time!

Panorama NYC is fast approaching, and EDM Identity could not be more excited to come to the New York City, also known as the Concrete Jungle. The lineup is stacked and The Point promises to be the happening of festival happenings. But what about outside the festival? Attendees from outside of NYC are about to come to the city that never sleeps. There is a lot to do within the Concrete Jungle and I could not be more excited to dive on in.

My whole family is from New York but I had not much explored the city until last year when I went up to see Moderat at Webster Hall. The food sprees I went on, the sites I photographed, and the breweries I explored were all amazing.. and I barely scratched the surface!

For my first trip to the city, I researched foodie spots, famous photography landmarks, and routes to each place, all for hours on end in excitement. One thing I really like about NYC was that the city as a whole provides so much stimulation, most of the time in the most random ways, and oftentimes free. Here are some of the places I suggest you grab a drink or a bite to eat at while in New York City for Panorama NYC!

Eat Your Way Through The Boroughs

Eat a Sushi Burger at Redeye Grill

Plan Your Visit: Website
Address: 890 Seventh Avenue, New York City 10019
Hours: International Breakfast & Brunch: Saturday – Sunday: 11 am – 4 pm
Lunch: Monday – Friday: 11:30 am – 4 pm
Dinner: Tuesday – Saturday: 4 pm – 11:30 am | Sunday – Monday: 4 pm – 10:30 pm

Classic American restaurant Red Eye Grill is the home of one of my foodie Moby Dicks: the sushi burger. I have hunted this foodie must-have over thousands of miles, coast to coast. The hunt sounds a lot grander than it actually is.

Truth be told, I heard about the sushi burger on my first trip to LA this year and hunted it down only to be eluded by the food truck that was known for it. Now I have another chance to harpoon this fish when I head up to Panorama.

Listen to this recipe: spicy yellowfin tuna, wakame seaweed salad, watermelon radish, ginger, and avocado, on a tamanashiki rice bun. Chef Brando De Oliveira takes pride in all his dishes, and his 20 years of experience in some of the world’s finest kitchens shows with this innovation. Yes, please!

Grab a Breakfast Burrito at Jalapa Jar

Plan your visit: Facebook
Address: 100 Henry St, Brooklyn, New York
Hours: Monday – Friday: 7:30 am – 9 pm | Saturday – Sunday: 9 am – 3 pm

When you go to NYC, a bagel is a must-have for breakfast on the daily. The bakeries in New York are almost next to none.  But I was advised by a good homie who lives in Brooklyn that Jalapa Jar was the spot that could possibly rival my NYC bagel love.

Jalapa Jar is rumored to have some of the best breakfast burritos around and you can get them throughout the day. I love breakfast for all meals. The place was started by two New Yorkers and two Texans who have a love and palate for salsa. They use only fire roasted peppers and jalapeno for all their salsa. I just hope it is spicy!

Experience the Wonder of The Kati Roll Company

Plan Your Visit: Website
Address: 99 MacDougal Street, New York, NY 10012 
Hours: Monday – Thursday: 11:30 am – 2 am | Friday -Saturday: 11:30 am – 5 am | Sunday: 11:30 am – 2 am

Tucked away in the quiet and quaint Greenwich Village, The Kati Roll Company has been providing some of NYC’s favorite munchies: the Kati Roll. Founder Payal Saha moved from her hometown of Kolkata to NYC and opened this location in 2002. She has since expanded TKRC all over NYC and even one location in London.

Saha uses hormone-free meat, hand-ground spices, and fresh produce in all her food. This is a must-have as you wander your way through the swanky cool of Greenwich Village.

Have a Proper Drink

Address: 615 Manhattan Avenue, Brooklyn, NY
Hours: 12 pm – 2 am daily
Ages: 21+

TØRST is a name you will hear referenced in the beer industry and culture. They specialize in a not-so-run-of-the-mill selection of beer. With a place like that, you would expect to be met with arrogance, but in fact, they are an awesome group of knowledgeable people. They will walk you through exactly what you are drinking, adding an experiential element that makes that $15 glass of beer quite worth it. Yes, it can be pricey: when I went the last time, the tab was $100 for an hour and a half of tasting – but it was well worth it!


Plan Your Visit: Website
Address:  9 Dayers Street, New York, NY 10079
Hours: Monday – Saturday: 6:30 pm – 2 am | Sunday: 8 pm – 2 am
Ages: 21+

The prospect of this places gets me so excited! This bar’s showmanship is only rivaled by its amazing selection of cocktails made from exotic herbs and fruits. Inspired by the absinthe dens of the 19th century in Paris, this laboratory meets theater meets bar is much more than a bar, it is an experience.

Mr. Purple

Plan Your Visit: Website
Address: 180 Orchard Street, 15th Floor, New York, NY 10002
Hours: Sunday – Tuesday: 11 am – 2 am | Wednesday: 11 am – 3 am | Thursday – Saturday: 11 am – 4 am
Admission: 21+

This is short and sweet: you go to Mr. Purple for the view. Located on the 15th floor of the Hotel Indigo on the Lower East Side, this rooftop bar has captured one of the finest aspects of New York City. Featuring both an indoor and outdoor area, this bar is versatile, full of attitude, and a place to be seen and enjoyed.

Christopher, or Brown Bear as his Festival Family and most of his friends call him, got his humble beginnings in the dance music scene when he was a child from none other than his mother. The weekends were filled with dance music from the 80’s and 90’s like La Bouche’s “Be My Lover” and Corona’s “Rhythm of the Night”. In 2010 his friends showed him a video from Bonnaroo of Pretty Light’s “I Know the Truth” and he immediately dived on in. Since then he has attended every live music festival from Spirit of Suwannee’s, Purple Hatters Ball (Jam Bands), to Let It Roll Drum & Bass Festival in the Czech Republic. Chris has an eclectic palate for music; from Shpongle and Bassnectar to Oliver Heldens and Porter Robinson, he vibes with it all. He has traveled from coast to coast and around the world looking what he calls The Bear Necessities of Life; the simple things that make you smile, or you find visually moving. This pursuit and travels inspired Bearlosophy, his photographic journal of all his adventures. He aspires to travel the world taking photos for non-profit organizations or to work for one of the top EDM photography teams like aLIVE Coverage.
