As a regular poster and foodie addict from Phily, I would love to get some advice from you NYC folks. This weekend, we are staying at Howard Johnson's Express on the Lower East Side. We are planning on having breakfast at Katz, and I am dying to bring some pickles home from Guss. My wife is a South Phila Italian and fairly conservative in her eating habits. I would appreciate some dinner recommendations with a focus on Italian not far from our hotel.
Thanks in advance!!
