As kids, it was pretty easy to break things, whether it was your bones, your grandma’s vase, or that ceramic dish sitting on the living room shelf. As adults (or something like it), we expand our repertoire with the steady breaking of our New Year’s resolutions, which generally happens somewhere between their announcement and the second week of the year. But before I provide all of the best places in NYC to break these resolutions, let me first take a moment to commend us for even trying to resolve and better ourselves in the first place. (moment of silence). Alright, now let’s get to it.

It’s 4/20, everybody, and if you know what that means, you’ll be getting pretty hungry sooner or later. But not, like, roast-chicken-and-mixed-vegetables hungry. You’ll want something weirdly specific, something with color, texture, and a rainbow of flavors. Something that doesn’t take too long. Where should you go to satisfy your craving for munchies in New York? Well, you could think really hard about it, but your thoughts could easily drift to your own mortality, or how much you like the feeling of velvet, or why you’ve never seen a baby pigeon, and you know where that goes. Instead, why not give the old brain a break, grab a seltzer or a Gatorade or something, and head out to one of these primo spots for chowing down when you’re lifted. Oh, and sorry, we were going to post this at 4:20 p.m., but, you know …
Corner Bistro (West Village) – Because it’s on Jane Street, man. Also, best burgers in the city. That’s right, we said it.
Artichoke Basille’s Pizza & Brewery (East Village) – Because artichokes have hearts, like you and me. And it’s open until 5am.
Insomnia Cookies (Greenwich Village) – Because you can get a dozen chocolate chunk cookies delivered to your door. Call your other guy at the same time and see who arrives first.
Momofuku Milk Bar (Carroll Gardens) – Because they have crack pie.
Stand 4 (Greenwich Village) – Because TOASTED MARSHMALLOW MILKSHAKES. Sorry for the all caps, don’t want to harsh your mellow.
