I love eating noodles in Koreatown and the adventure of cramming into a tiny elevator that opens into a restaurant full of authentic smells and flavors. I like traveling out... Read more >

What is New York cuisine?

 

The food in New York is unmatched in diversity and styles, from high-end to those hole-in-the-wall finds. The food scene is always changing and evolving, which is so much fun because as frequently as I travel to New York, there is always a huge list of restaurants, markets, and specialty shops that I want to go to. I always leave New York already planning my next trip in my mind. It truly is a melting pot.

What is New York cuisine?

 

For me, New York City is a place I go to experience the best food this country has to offer on all levels, from small hole-in-the-wall neighborhood spots that have been around for years to the finest restaurants in the country and everything in between. I usually go for work with a side of enjoyment, but my visits are guaranteed to refresh ideas and ignite inspiration.

What is New York cuisine?

 

In a city like New York, I think it's difficult to say what defines the cuisine. There is so much going on: populations shifting and mingling, trends coming and going, fortunes ebbing and flowing. I could point to certain places that I think only really exist here in their archetypical forms: Defonte's sandwich shop in Red Hook, Katz's deli,... Read more >
