Father's Day Tour Planned/Famous Fat Dave Take Notes

guttergourmet | May 15, 2007 07:08 PM

Although Famous Fat Dave has some intriguing tours, I've been doing the same tours myself forever and have a long standing tradition of taking my brother and father on my own unique tour for Father's day (and my bro's birthday). I'm still in the planning stage this year so I thought I'd bounce it off the crowd. Here goes: I'm thinking we start on the LES at Essex Street Market (will have to be a Saturday) to try a hunk of Grayson cheese from Saxelby Cheesemongers. This is like eating a combo of pure butter and cream. Next cross the street to Castillo de Jagua for a great cubano (although I believe they're Dominican). Then drive straight up Park Ave across Central Park at 85th to Amsterdam and 86th for Barney Greengrass sturgeon on a toasted onion bagel with butter. Though my bro wants to go back to Charles' Southern for fried chicken I say head north and east on Central Park North to 1st Avenue and 117th for a Patsy's pizza pie (or maybe do both). Drive Dad home to Queens but don't forget to stop at Eddie's Sweet Shop on Metropolitan Avenue for the greatest chocolate malted in the 5 boroughs in an authentic ice cream shop circa 1920. Top that FF Dave.
