When she’s not cleansing or food stamp challenging, Gwyneth Paltrow is eating well.

On Monday, the actress and lifestyle guru published a list of her 13 favorite restaurants in N.Y.C. on her site, Goop.

“Given N.Y.C.’s constantly changing restaurant landscape, it’s hard for an Angeleno to keep up — there are still plenty of things to try, but here’s an ever-evolving list of favorites,” the article reads. “Below, some new, not-so-new, or in a few cases, ages-old spots that never disappoint — in alphabetical order.”

Her picks span several styles of cooking — from Jewish soul food to upscale Italian to experimental Japanese — and even price ranges. Barney Greengrass, an iconic (albeit bare-bones) Jewish deli that specializes in smoked sturgeon, ranks among her top picks, as does Gramercy Tavern, a decidedly high-end N.Y.C. institution that favors her brand of artisanal-local-seasonal cuisine. Other favorites include Russ & Daughters, Ramen Lab, Pearl Oyster Bar, Momofuku, Jungsik, Elio’s, Decoy, Daruma-Ya Soba Izakaya, Casa Mono, Emilio’s Ballato and Buvette.

We will say there’s a noticeable lack of Mexican and B.B.Q, two foods New York does remarkably well despite borrowing both, but overall, the list is impressively inclusive.

Did Paltrow leave out your favorite restaurant?

Everyone who actually lives in NYC and who knows what good Mexican food tastes like knows that the Mexican food here is terrible. TERRIBLE. But it’s ok because we basically have everything else.

Also, other than Buvette, GP’s list is pretty bad.

Javelina!!! Best place to eat in NYC!!!

Truth on

I don’t hate GP but I truly don’t understand why the same celebrities get article after article on here.While others (such as more recent actors and actress) are never mentioned. At least twice a day there is an article on GP. Why? Is she paying some of PM’s bills?

Who the F cares??? Trying to stay relevant but isn’t!


Oddly enough, she tried a food challenge a few months ago and failed…But hey, to each their own. My months rent probably is the cost to eat at one of those places for a meal for 2.

What’s up all the Gwyneth articles lately? And people think Jennifet Aniston’s rep works overtime! It’s either Gwyneth or her Mom lately. Good grief!
