Uniquely New York?

Lost | Aug 27, 2008 07:54 PM

During my travels I make it a point to eat something that is unique to the city I'm visiting or that had originated in the city. For example my last trip was to New Orleans, I skipped the gumbo and cajun food and went straight for the Muffelatta Sandwich. I ate one at the origninal shop, Central Grocery, then I ate one at a small restaurant that added their own twist to it that the locals raved about. So my question is what is unique or originated in New York? Please don't say pizza because while I know that NY is famous for thin crust pizza I have gorged myself on pizza on a trip to Naples, Italy. This is my first trip to NYC and I'm more interested in eating where the locals eat and not at the "chef of the moment" overpriced eatery. Thanks for any guidance.
