Our Favorite Instagram Worthy Restaurants in NYC

An elevated experience

Pebble Bar

67 W 49th St, New York, NY 10112
Located on floors 2 - 4 of a townhouse at Rockefeller Center, Pebble Bar is an elevated space for intimate cocktails with friends, family, and coworkers. You'll love them for their walk-in cocktail bar on the 2nd floor, or their delicious small bites (like a classic shrimp cocktail or lobster roll) housed on the 3rd floor.

Pebble Bar's historic location combined with great city views makes this a great spot to snap the perfect Instagram photo. If the views and atmosphere don't impress you, you'll surely be wowed by their bright and energetic cocktail list–all picture-perfect.
A light and refreshing space

Isla & Co.

107 N 12th St, Brooklyn, NY 11249
Isla & Co is a beautiful restaurant, part of the Parched Hospitality Group of restaurants–the same folks behind popular restaurants Hole in The Wall, The Sentry, and Daintree. Serving a delicious brunch and dinner menu, Isla & Co highlights the "culture of Australian hospitality" to create a dining experience that feels both elevated and approachable.

Stop in for a Saturday morning brunch surrounded by beautiful red brick and an inviting dining space complete with a great outdoor patio. You'll get plenty of natural light to make all of your pictures glow, plus gorgeous cocktails and perfectly crafted lattes.

A stunning New York experience

The Orchard Townhouse

242 10th Ave, New York, NY 10001
I'll be honest: everything about The Orchard Townhouse impresses me. I'm a sucker for a stunning and historic-looking building, and this restaurant housed out of a four-story townhouse on 10th avenue has me hooked. The Orchard Townhouse combines bright natural light and a comfortable dining room with delicious American plates and innovative twists on classic cocktails to build a perfect quintessential New York mystique that's sure to entertain any diners.

A Spot full of whimsy

Nat's on Bleecker

170 Bleecker St, New York, NY 10012
I love Nat's aesthetic. The bright pops of color, the abstract shapes, and the art-deco-inspired decor make this place a treat for the eyes. Nat's is a neighborhood favorite with great seafood and a whimsical design.

They serve elevated food and New York classics, all with a touch of whimsy. Perfect for someone looking for both hot and cold cocktails, great lunch and dinner menus, and a whole lot of atmosphere. Nat's has two locations: one on Bleecker and one on Bank. They also have a daily happy hour from 5 pm - 7 pm.

Their dining room and outdoor space are both perfect for taking a whimsical photo, making this a perfect fit for our Instagram worthy restaurants guide. With a unique illustrative design (even their bathroom is filled with whimsy) and lots of light, you'll get some truly unforgettable experiences and the pictures to prove it.
