Only in New York... neighborhood restaurants you would head to first

kayreed | Apr 21, 201809:00 PM

DH and I will be visiting Manhattan (staying in the Upper West Side) and Brooklyn over Memorial Day weekend. We like to find restaurants using the Calvin Trillin method (i.e. asking a local "if you were beamed to Antartica for 6 months, then found yourself back home, where is the first place you would eat - and not the fancy place you would take your parents for their anniversary?"

So, what say you, New Yorkers? Where is the first place you would head, even (or especially) if they serve on paper plates with sporks?
