I have a friend coming into town from PA. He has never been to NYC. Even though he's not a foodie by a long shot, I want to take him out to some restaurants that are very NYC and/or introduce him to better options of his old standbys (Pizza, burgers, wings, beer).
For very NYC places, I was thinking Katz's. Are there other places you can recommend that maybe aren't old school NYC?
As for Pizza, burger, wings: I have Motorina, Minetta and Mono + Mono.
What do you think of those? Any better places to recommend. I am looking for places downtown, East or West side, below 14th. Mostly we will be in the EV, WV, LES, Nolita, Soho, High line areas.
Thanks so much!
