Take the Road Less Traveled to Brooklyn's Clinton Hill and Prospect Heights Neighborhoods
Chowhound has the inside scoop on the restaurants and bars that will make you even more appreciative of New York’s dynamic and ever-evolving dining scene.
The Big Apple boasts 5 boroughs saturated with restaurant options, but to make this beast of a dining town manageable, here are some of our favorite eating and drinking experiences that are not to be missed.
Easy Spinach Lasagna
What's not to love about layers of pasta, gooey cheese, and rich tomato sauce? Lasagna is simply delicious, and this spinach and ricotta version (with Parmesan and mozzarella too) is as easy to make as it is to eat.
Sear-Roasted Lamb Loin Chops
Lamb loin chops may seem fancy, but they're super easy to cook in a single pan. Just sear, roast, and rest for juicy perfection.
Easy Dessert Tart Crust
This easy dessert tart crust is buttery, lightly sweetened, and delicately crispy -- the perfect foolproof base for any sweet filling you can devise.
Easy Philly Cheesesteaks
Philly cheesesteaks are delicious but divisive. This easy version has thin-sliced rib eye, sautéed peppers, onions, and optional mushrooms, and Provolone (sorry, Whiz fans).
Cornbread is a Southern staple, and a must with chili. This version is moist all the way through, with a lightly crisped top and a touch of sweetness. Mix in cheese or jalapeños for extra flavor, and feel free to bake as muffins if you prefer.
