Food Suggestions? (re: 2nd Ave Deli Lesson)

NativeNewYorker | Jan 6, 2006 01:13 PM

The trend in New York City is the demise of authentic historic places that don't seem to please the recent yuppie arrivals. (Pros: cleaner streets, less crime; CONS: loss of charm, proliferation of Free Range Chicken, Chilean Sea Bass, and some sort of Penne)

The question is, what's left? What should we visit NOW before it is gone? (I think ambiance and history count a lot on this one.)

I propose:
Berger's Deli
Katz Deli
Eisenberg's Deli
Old Town Bar
Prime Burger
Papaya King
Mimi's Pizza
Oyster Bar
Rocco's (cannolis)
Cafe Figaro
Faccio's Pork Store

(PS I rarely lament the passing of a bakery. The bakeries of old New York seemed to churn out dry, stale good. Versus my youth in NYC, the bakeries seem far superior now.)

Zito's Bakery
Rocky Lee
2nd Ave Deli?
The Autopub
