Check out these 10 Instagram accounts that dedicate their feeds to endless photos of some of the best food in New York City. These chefs, food fanatics, and amateur photographers will make you extremely hungry while keeping you up to speed on the latest food trends in NYC.
@Onceuponabite: This “Ambitious home cook turned line cook turned your cook, if you’re hungry,” consistently delivers beautiful shots of Brooklyn’s best food including her own masterpieces from Mile End Deli in Boerum Hill, which is an almost perfect spot for taking foodporn-worthy photos. Grab a seat by the big windows in the front and you'll probably double your likes with an ideally illuminated picture of eggs or some combination of slow-cooked meats.
Hungrygrls: I guess “Hungry Girls” was already taken, but these chicks provide daily doses of sweets, #foodintheair, and everything in between. Do you enjoy puns? Fantastic. Hungrygrls’ captions are littered with them. Examples include, “they see me (lobstah) rollin, they hatin’,” and “let me see ya grill(ed cheese)”.
@Bestfoodny: This account is dedicated to exactly what the name suggests: the best food in NY (mostly NYC). The account owners have built a following by crushing the #regram, and if you're looking to get reposted then hashtag your foodporn photos with #myfab5.
@Justcooknyc: A mix of NYC tacos, egg dishes, and really delicious looking homemade meals, this guy clearly plans his day around his eats. This account crushes the top-down photo approach, and will never bombard your Instagram feed with 50+ hashtags that have nothing to do with the photo like “nomnom,” “yumtastic,” and “drool.” Keeping it simple for the last 2k+ photos.
@New_fork_city: Besides having a pretty clever account name, these guys have over 30k followers with just over 500 pictures. This is just a good account with a real eclectic mix of the newest NYC food, regrams of posts that use the tag #newforkcity, and things like this.
@nycpizzagram: The name says it all, folks. Slices, pies, flatbreads – this account is serious about pizza. The account is fairly new to the NYC Instagram food community (if that’s such a thing), but their selection of pizza establishments and the quality of their photos seem promising for future greatness. Plus, who doesn’t like endless photos of pizza?
@Grilledcheesesocial: Want to know the secret to an extremely popular Instagram food photo? It should probably involve egg yolks, donuts, or some overly stuffed gooey grilled cheese. This account definitely capitalizes on their name by providing first-rate photos of all three, plus an abundance of stellar Brooklyn-based shots.
@Eatingnyc: This account is truly eating their way through NYC, and you’re going to like the photos along the way. It’s just a great offering of good street food, fine dining, and treats that you were craving before you even saw the photo, all of which will make you regret packing that plain tuna sandwich for lunch. The #eatingnyc hashtag is quickly becoming a favorite among NYC food lovers.
@NYCDining: Want a broad photo-based education on NYC dining? Check out this city dweller who is serious about trying all the best food that NYC has to offer, and she does it in pretty high fashion. This aptly named account will hit you with everything from Cupcake ATM posts to overloaded brunch photos to meals at Eleven Madison Park.
@NYCFoodandTravel: This is my shameless plug for my own account, which is entirely dedicated to food and offers a selection of unique homemade meals, NYC market and street-fair grub, and a little bit of travel photos here and there. Get after some NYC eats and tag your photos with #NYCFAT.
