Where To Eat & Drink in New York During the US Open

Recommendations from a lifelong New Yorker & tennis fan

New York is the greatest city in the world especially in terms of eating and drinking and the amount of options can be overwhelming. You are spoiled for choice and settling on one place is the hardest part!

Here are some of my recommendations for restaurants and bars to try when you're visiting New York for the US Open.


In case you want to just grab a casual, inexpensive dinner with a NYC theme on your way home from the tennis. Here are some places I would suggest if you don’t want to change into nicer clothes or you’re in a rush to get back to the hotel to watch the night matches live starting at 7pm.


Burger Joint

JG Mellon

Corner Bistro



Rizzo's Fine Pizza

Angelo’s Pizza


2nd Ave Deli

Russ & Daughters Cafe

Katz's Delicatessen

Tourist Traps to be avoided: Carnegie Deli, Serendipity, any chain restaurant

More Upscale:

A day at the US Open is stressful! Worrying about how your favorite player is doing, fighting through the crowds at the outer courts and food lines, baking in the hot sun all day. Treating yourself to an upscale dinner and experiencing some of NYC's best cuisine is a fantastic idea!
