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any Italian or Asian food recommendations, because all my good insider places from when I lived in Chinatown are out of date, and I like Italian food enough that I don't discriminate.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.

re; Katz's and other similar Jewish delis....there's nothing more inedible than a pound of meat jammed between two slices of bread, no matter how good the quality. It looks impressive as hell but its just too goddamn much.....

That may indeed be your experience, but I'm going to have to disagree about that being inedible as well. The amount of pastrami in a Carnegie deli sandwich is indeed enough for two meals, but eating one half at a time as thick as they are served is fine, and the way it is meant to be enjoyed. You just save the other half for another meal if you can't eat it all (you could split it with someone too, if for some reason you aren't going to want leftovers).

Now you can argue with the logic of serving two meal's worth of meat in one sandwich, but as I say, proper pastrami is perfectly edible served that way.
