What's the best NYC restaurant for each country's food?



At NYCCatering.com, we are on a mission to connect New Yorkers with catering options from around the globe. It’s important to us to make sure people can find exactly what they’re looking for, especially when it comes to connecting them with cuisine that can give them a little taste of home.

With this mission in mind, we made a list of the best restaurants in NYC that serve each country’s food. What do we mean by "best"? It's simple: The restaurants we selected predominately serve the cuisine of the country listed and had the highest-rated Yelp reviews at the time of writing (March 31, 2020).

We need your help to complete this list! We are still looking for the best restaurants serving cuisine from many countries in our list. If you know of a great restaurant that fits one of the countries in the following list, please email BestCuisine@NYCCatering.com to suggest one. Together, I’m sure we can help others celebrate their special event with their nostalgia-inducing favorites, right here in NYC.
