Hello. I have been away from NY for 3 years and am finally coming to visit after being flavor- and variety-deprived in Germany all these years. I've compiled a list of all my favorite eats over the years, mostly cheap and kid-friendly, but I need your help editing and updating it for my trip. Do all these places even exist anymore?

Also, I would love suggestions on any new places I shouldn't miss. As you can see, I don't need a fancy 3-course meal as it's the little things that I love. I will be traveling with my husband and two boys aged 5 and 8, both lovers and explorers of good food.

Thanks in advance.

And sorry the list is a bit randomly (dis)organized:

Morgenstern's ice cream
