Our weekend series, “Favorite Places,” features beloved travel destinations, attractions, restaurants, hotels and more from different members of the TPG team. Today, TPG Contributor Matthew Zuzolo gives us a glimpse of the delightful/delicious Stone Street in New York City.

Stone Street Historic District is located in New York City’s bustling Financial District, just a short walk from TPG headquarters in Lower Manhattan. This narrow cobblestone street is home to more than 10 bars and restaurants and long rows of picnic tables, providing a great place for locals to gather for some outdoor dining in the summertime. There’s also a wide variety of other eateries in the vicinity, with something new to try on each visit.

Recently, The Points Guy team went for an outdoor group lunch at Smörgås Chef, a Swedish restaurant on the main drag. Smörgås specializes in Swedish meatballs, but also has soups and burgers along with traditional Swedish fish dishes. Happily, we were able to use our Chase Sapphire Preferred cards to earn double points on the lunch.

On busy summer days, it might be necessary to make a reservation, so be sure to plan ahead if you’ll be stopping by Stone Street for a meal at Smörgås Chef.

Some of the other TPG employees’ favorites include the Stone Street Tavern, Bavaria Bierhaus and Route 66 Smokehouse.
