Eating in New York
One thing you should know is that I’m only including places where I have eaten more than once. This means that the next time I trick someone into taking me to Torrisi Italian Specialties, I’ll add it to the list, since Torrisi served the best meal I’ve eaten in New York, and if I ever write a romantic comedy, Torrisi will be the location of my couple’s first date, which is basically my equivalent of four stars. But Torrisi is not on here, because this list is very official, with rules and stuff. Also, if you’re wondering where you should eat in New York, and for some reason you’re asking me, you should know that all of these restaurants are very close to each other, and most of them are pretty cheap.
So where should you eat in New York? You should eat at a lot of places! And discovering a place on your own is one of the most delicious parts of eating in New York.
But if you want to know where I like to eat in New York, well then: Café Habana, Calliope, Corner Bistro, Dos Toros Taqueria, Empellon Taqueria, Mighty Quinn’s, Mission Chinese Food, Momofuku Noodle Bar, Parm, Russ & Daughters, Schiller’s Liquor Bar, Tacombi, Taqueria Lower East Side and Zucco: Le French Diner.
