Neil Patrick Harris

In one way or another, Neil Patrick Harris has been an expert all his life. From his youth playing medical prodigy Doogie Howser, M.D. to his adult life as a triple-threat (TV, movies, Broadway) actor and culinary connoisseur. Not only is NPH married to professional chef David Burtka, but he lives in one of the world’s top food cities and curates a Twitter account dedicated to food porn. That’s why we thought he’d be great person to tap for his top restaurant picks in New York.

A wonderful breakfast spot in the Upper West Side. Casual, unpretentious, yet incredibly thoughtful. The chef made a life goal of perfecting the scrambled eggs, and it shows.
