Out of the Blue

A couple of follow-ups on yesterday's discussion of NYC destinations. On the topic of getting good pizza elsewhere, I'm sure it happens all the time, but as for authenticity, I've grown fond of the theory that the reason local cuisine like New York bagels and pizza don't taste quite the same elsewhere is due to the water. Also, someone mentioned Nathan's for hot dogs, but I think they are a national chain.

Also, I didn't realize Chumley's was under re-construction, sorry. Hope it's just as cool when it reopens.

And I didn't include any Italian or Asian food recommendations, because all my good insider places from when I lived in Chinatown are out of date, and I like Italian food enough that I don't discriminate. There's a lot of fun to be had eating in Chinatown and Little Italy (well, it was little when I was a kid, now it's miniscule}, which can be touristy, but qualifies as the touristy stuff natives do.

Yeah, I order a corned-beef on rye and it better be bursting with meet and slathered in mustard (regular or Keen's hot), a nice big kosher dill pickle and maybe a knish or a blintz to go with it and some oil and vinegar 'slaw.

I said Nathans because it started out in Coney Island in 1916, and I remember the first time I had a steamer in NYC it was Nathans...good times. I would have loved to go to Coney Island back in the day.

As for newer stuff like Italian, etc. that why I recommened Chowhoud.com. Site like that are the best for finding "local" places as well as getting lots of real reviews from real people.
