NYC Best Wings Part 1: Blind Tiger Ale House Flies Ahead of the Pack

Date December 12, 2008

NYC Food Guy loves wings; high quality chicken, crispy on the outside, juicy on the inside, and doused in a fiery sauce. Astonishingly, there are no go to wings in New York City. Dinosaur BBQ never disappoints but it’s just one place, way uptown. That’s why I’ve made it my mission to [...]

NYC Cheap Eats: Luigi’s Delivers, Afghan Kebab House #1 Does Not

Date November 26, 2008

NYC Food Guy’s M.O. is delicious and affordable. My cheap eats repertoire is strong. And in the current economic state, bang for your buck carries added importance. Chicken parmesan heroes and Afghani kebabs don’t exactly go hand in hand, but two Midtown West establishments, Luigi’s and Afghan Kebab House #1 both offer what [...]

Five Guys Hot Dog: Delicious With Bacon, Cheese & Jalapenos

Date November 7, 2008

Sometimes you just feel like shaking it up. And sometimes you feel like it would be a bit redundant to post another rosy review of Five Guys Burgers. Whatever your motivation is, the next time you’re at Five Guys you too should get a bacon cheese dog. Add some jalapenos, since all [...]

NYC Cookies: Petrossian is no Levain but…

Date October 24, 2008

These are some damn good cookies. Petrossian, the company known for importing Russian caviar, also operates a Cafe/Bakery on 7th Avenue between 57th & 58th Street where they sell three varieties of fresh-baked cookies: Chocolate chip pecan ($3), Double chocolate walnut ($3), and Oatmeal raisin with walnut ($2). Each cookie is delicious, but [...]

Sarabeth’s & Good Enough to Eat: NYC’s Best Pancakes?

Date September 13, 2008

NYC Food Guy is a pancake fan but it’s hard to find good ones. The best I’ve had in the city so far are the Banana Walnut Pancakes with Warm Maple Butter at Clinton Street Baking Company. I’d heard good things about Sarabeth’s & Good Enough to Eat so I decided to see [...]

Tasty Thai Lunch Special for $7.55 at Chai (Eat In Only, 11:30AM to 4PM)

Date September 6, 2008

Finding a filling and delicious lunch in Midtown for under $10 is quite a challenge. But if you work in walking distance from Chai on 55th Street & 8th Avenue, you can now get out of the office for a Thai Lunch Special that can’t be beat. You can fill your stomach for $8 [...]

NY Food Tour: Bacon Cheeseburger with Crispy Onions at Goodburger

Date August 19, 2008

NYC Food Guy Note: I’m on vacation in California so I’m sending you on a NY Food Tour to keep your stomach happy while I’m gone. Enjoy the deliciousness.

What: While the beef is almost as delicious as Burger Joint’s, Goodburger offers all the toppings you wish the Burger Joint had. Thanks to Lil NYC Food [...]

Daisy May’s Big Pig Gig: Smoked Whole Pig for 12 People

Date July 24, 2008

Wow. Just wow. It’s hard to feel any other emotion when a 35-45 pound pig smoked for 7-8 hours is placed directly in front of you with one purpose: Feeding twelve hungry carnivores. For $480 plus tax, Daisy May’s BBQ USA, on 11th Avenue and 46th Street, will provide you and eleven others with [...]

Angelo’s: Midtown’s Best Pizza?

Date June 24, 2008

Angelo’s, on 57th Street near 6th Avenue, is not the best pizza in the city, but as one of the only two coal oven pizza spots in Midtown (John’s in Times Square) it has a major advantage over the ordinary slice joints that litter the neighborhood. It’s pies only ($17 large, $15 small, $2.50 [...]

Sandwiches To Avoid at Lenny’s & Todaro Brothers

Date June 24, 2008

A bad sandwich is like a missed layup, it invokes groans and easily avoidable pain. NYC Food Guy is here to tell you to avoid the #2 Italian Style sandwich at Lenny’s (top) and any sandwich that’s made to order at Todaro Brothers (bottom) on 2nd Ave and 31st street.

Lenny’s rarely disappoints but the generic [...]

Burrito Box: The Best Tex Mex Delivery in Midtown

Date June 19, 2008

Burrito Box, on 9th Avenue between 57th & 58th, offers the best and most affordable Tex Mex delivery in Midtown.

I recommend the Grilled Chicken Burrito ($6.95) with sour cream on the side (it comes with too much in it) and a large order of chips and salsa ($3.85). The salsa is homemade and chunky, filled [...]

Bella Vita: Are looks Deceiving or is it Midtown’s Best?

Date June 6, 2008

The quest for the best slice of pizza in Midtown near Times Square continues. Thus far, Bella Napoli’s Grandma slice has received the only mark of distinction. I’ve heard good things about the brick oven pizza at Bella Vita, on 58th between 6th and 7th, but have only had it by delivery. It’s time to [...]
