Fran Drescher shares her favorite NYC spots

'The Nanny' star shares her favorite NYC restaurants, museums and more.

We recently caught up with beloved The Nanny star Fran Drescher, who recently told us all about her upcoming The Nanny musical and her new picture book with Australian author Rebecca Kelly, N is for The Nanny.

She's been very busy, but she stopped to give us her favorite NYC spots, too. Drescher primarily lives in California but has a home here in the city and was more than happy to share the places that bring her joy.

"I love New York!" she tells us. "Every time I arrive on what I lovingly call 'the rock,' I must see at least one show, one art exhibition, one new restaurant and several regular faves that make me feel each time like coming home again."

She recently went to see the special, limited run of Stephen Sondheim’s Into The Woods at New York City Center. "Heather Hedley has got it all and heads a superlative cast of this genius metaphor of life through the experiences of fairytale characters," she says.

But all in all, walking the city always yields something good for Drescher. "If you do nothing else walk! And in New York, walking while eating a hot dog, a slice of pizza, a pretzel or a donut is perfectly acceptable."

Below are six of Fran Drescher's favorite restaurants, museums and NYC spots that she recommends:
