I'm Italian but I live in London. I'm a food-acoholic, I love trying new places and foods and I write restaurant reviews both in London and in Italy.
I am coming to NY for the first time, and I'm willing to make the best of the gastronomic heaven that it seems to be! I'm stayin in a cheap hotel in the Upper West side and I'm looking for tips on places where I can get good food without spending a fortune (that I don't have, unfortunately)
a) Sushi! I am a Sushi-freak, so please help me! I have MY sushi place in London I adore, I'm looking for tips on NY's best cheap sushi places (not so cheap it'll kill me, obviously). Restaurants and take away, both welcome
b) Pancakes! I want to finally have REAL pancakes, blueberry are me favourite...any ideas?
c) American food...like Burgers and steaks....my knowledge goes ad far as Hard Rock here...sorry! I want THE real thing now!
d) Dim-Sum: is china-town good? Any other locations?
e)Mexican food...well, enough said!
f) Cheescake....which is the best place in NY?
And really, anything else I might want to try before I leave...something you consider to be special, cool, worth-going...
thanks so much in advance guys,
