My foodie friend moved from New York City to San Francisco earlier this year and I am going to visit her next week. I want to surprise her with a gift basket of unique NYC goodies (chocolates, pastries, snacks, etc.). This question goes out to former New Yorkers or those who have visited and eaten in the Big Apple--what NYC foods would you want someone to bring you? Keep in mind that I will be flying, so it must be airline-approved. I was thinking maybe chocolates from Kee's or Jacques Torres, coffee beans from Ninth Street Espresso, something from Zabar's . . .
Thanks so much!
