New Yorkers may favor all-black when it comes dressing, but when it comes to dining, they’re thinking pink. If you thought that millennial pink was a trend solely seen on the runway – think again. These days, rose-colored restaurants are taking over the food scene providing not only delicious bites to munch on, but also a picture-perfect backdrop for your next Instagram, total win-win. Below we’re breaking down every prink restaurant you need to visit in New York City.
Don’t be surprised if you’ve seen this Italian eatery popping up on feeds of your favorite fashion influencers. Located in Nolita, this all-pink restaurant is like Barbie’s dreamhouse but for adults with its interior and exterior covered in bubblegum pink from top-to-bottom. Truly a pink lover’s paradise, expect to see the feminine hue even make an appearance on the menu with pink pasta (made with beets) and pink cocktails.
Pietro Nolita: 174 Elizabeth St. New York, New York 10012
Blank Slate Tea
Fancy yourself some tea? Start your day off right with a little morning pick-me-up at this cozy pink space. Located in Midtown, this tea bar boasts an impressive array of teas from iced, hot tea, tea lattes, matcha, chai, and even assam. For a delicious treat as beautiful as the décor – we’re talking the prettiest floral wallpaper your eyes have ever seen and plushiest pink couches – we recommend the rose tea latte and pink hummus toast for a truly Insta- worthy meal.

Cha Cha Matcha
Matcha lovers and influencers alike are no stranger to Cha Cha Matcha. Nestled between Soho and Chinatown, this hip little café is a dream come true for anyone in need of their latest matcha fix. A favorite amongst the model set (Gigi Hadid and Taylor Hill are big fans!), this popular joint’s lively pink décor serves as the perfect backdrop for its green drinks such as a matcha latte or matcha lemonade. Be sure to try the Pink Drink – it’s a delicious blend of hibiscus, rose hips, bee pollen and maca. Yum.

While We Were Young
Searching for the perfect spot for a nice girly brunch? While We Were Young in West Village may just be the most beautiful brunch spot that we’ve ever seen. With its crisp white walls, marble countertops, neon signs, and rose petals strewn about, this chic (and very instagrammable) cocktail bar is truly a fashion influencer’s dream. More subdued in its usage of millennial pink, you’ll want to cozy up in one of their plushy pink velvet couches while you sip one of their dainty cocktails with cheeky names like The Morning After and Too Good For You. Serving a number of healthy twists on your favorite classic dishes – we recommend the fried chicken with kale waffles – you’ll want to stop by this spot even if it’s just for the ‘gram.
While We Were Young: 183 W 10th St, New York, New York 10014
Sweets by Chloe

Founded by award-winning vegan chef Chloe Coscarelli, the West Village bakery serves as a much sweeter counterpart to famous vegan eatery By Chloe located right next door. From its adorable pink and white awning to its pink coffee cups to its punny pink neon signs, if the bakery’s ultra-cute décor doesn’t keep you coming back then surely their array of treats like the Matcha Babka or Raspberry Goji Bar will.
