American soul food at its very best, with added feel-good points for being 100% organic. Diners come flock from far and wide for a good feed at the mighty Sweet Chick.

If bacon wrapped oysters, oh-so-creamy mac and cheese and their signature starter of bacon waffles with fried chicken don’t tempt, there’s simply no pleasing you. Try the bacon Bloody Mary for a Sunday brunch time pick-me-up. If you’re lucky enough to move to Manhattan, there’s one on the Lower East Side.

Found in the trendy meatpacking district of NYC, Barbuto is owned by celebrity chef Jonathan Waxman and one of the best Italians in the city with plenty of buzz about it. Book your table a month in advance, and bring the credit card – it’s not cheap, but it’ll be worth every dime.

The Meatball Shop £

200 Ninth 1462 Second 84 Stanton 170 Bedford 64 Greenwich

Hidden behind the swish five star façade of Le Parker Meridien hotel hides a New York gem of a burger joint with graffiti on the walls, handwritten menus and a busy hatch where you collect your nosh.

Food’s served in takeaway bags a la Maccy D’s, and gherkins in paper cups. Arrive early or head for a late lunch if you want to avoid the inevitable queues. This one’s a cheapie, despite the posh address.

They have free champagne in the bathroom, too. Need we say more?
