I need HELP! I've been to NY twice and come back drooling about the food. I must add that as a born and bred Californian, my taste buds are more NY style. I am not into "natural" "organic" "gourmet" and neither is he. We love authentic NY pizza, anything steak, potatoes, scampi, clams, italian, and even Chinese, but nothing such as salads that look like weeds, sauces with words such as "raspberry" or "corn salsa" or " so-and-so jelly". I know this is not the norm for someone visiting this area or living here with a palate such as mine, but I would appreciate any recommendations from those of you with a similar palate who live near San Francisco/San Mateo (which is where we will be staying). And big portions are a PLUS. Thanks for any help!
