Aracini in the City. The best rice balls are at Faicco’s. Hands down.
Saad of Essex Olive Oil & Spice in the all new and beautiful Essex Market. If you haven’t seen the new digs yet, you’re missing out.
Oh the joys of the Nonna Maria slice at Bleecker Street Pizza. It’s good down to the very last bite.
Have you ever had the best Chinese dumplings in New York City? Come on my Lower East Side tour and I’ll hand deliver them to you courtesy of Vanessa’s Dumpling House.
Getting a glimpse (in the sunlight) of Soppressata from Faicco’s. Not really but it made for a funny pic. No?
50 years of marriage and celebrating it on one of my tours. I was so honored. These two took my Lower East Side tour.
Siskel and Ebert. I miss those guys. Their trademark was “two thumbs up,” and pastrami at Katz’s Deli easily scores the highest ratings. Believe the hype. You’ll never go anywhere else for pastrami (or want to anyway)
Dig into a slice of heaven. It’s such an overused expression but at Bleecker Street Pizza it’s pretty on target.
One is the loneliest number that you’ll ever do… Doughnut Plant. Come by our Lower East Side Tour and sample a bunch of goodness.
Passing around some arancini (rice balls) at Faicco’s. These are so good it’ll almost make you forget about the cold. Almost. 📷: Cortney Armitage for Moving Forward Consulting.
