Restaurants in New York, NY

What is the true taste of New York City? You can eat the cuisines of the world (especially in the boroughs), and if a food or a chef is trendy, you will find that here for sure; but what are the dining experiences that are nowhere better, meals in which the flavor is all about New York? Certainly you want a great pastrami sandwich, smoked fish, and lox and bagels in a vintage deli. The primest of prime steak in a clubby steak house (at the primest prices) remains a pinnacle of New York excellence. But a true taste of the city isn’t necessarily a wallet-busting experience. “Dirty water dogs” and all-beef kosher dogs sold from street carts and at delis are a no-utensil delight. Pizza by the slice or by the whole pie from a coal-fired oven is an essential taste of the city, as is a meal in an old-fashioned coffee shop. As for noshing between meals, note that the world’s most wonderful cookies are made and sold at the shoebox-sized Levain Bakery.
