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any Italian or Asian food recommendations, because all my good insider places from when I lived in Chinatown are out of date, and I like Italian food enough that I don't discriminate.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

Deli rule #3. Take the toothpick out of the sandwich before eating.

My father-in-law has a toothpick in an acrylic cube. A surgeon had to remove it because he didn't follow that rule.

I adopted Deli Rule 3 - Addendum 2: if possible peak inside the sandwich too to make sure nothing is hinky.

It was either back in school, or some cr@ppy deli, but rule #3 didn't work for me once as the deli had accidentally left a 2nd toothpick inside the sandwich (practically on its side).

Fortunately no damage done as I caught it in time, but it was definitely a wake-up call. I now tend to take a quick look inside any sandwich not made by myself.

My best guess was someone behind the counter lifted up the loaf (perhaps knocked it off the plate by accident) and the when putting everything back though it lacked a toothpick and put another in. Meanwhile the first was really just inside.

-EDIT-
Reading more of the thread, it looks like this might be more related to Rule 2 than 3, though 2 seems to be on the Deli's side and not the eater.
