New York City’s Definitive Indie Rock Food Map

Today kicks off the 2011 CMJ Music Marathon – that annual five-day barrage of label showcases, panels, and college radio nerdery. So as the indie music world descends on New York City, we thought we’d help introduce them to what Gotham takes almost as seriously as its tunes: its food.

We’ve created an interactive map of 125 NYC food recommendations from 58 indie artists, scraping everything from bands’ Yelp profiles to sites like Food Is The New Rock. Want to know where to find Hurray For Earth’s favorite slice? Maybe try some Das Racist-approved soup dumplings? We’ve got you covered. After all… it’s hard to rock on an empty stomach.
