Pizza can be a great divider in New York. In fact, one of the easiest ways to get into argument (without end) is to name a “best pizza in the city.” But at the same time, pizza — specifically the reheated, foldable, portable slice — is one of the city’s great uniters. There is no culinary experience that New Yorkers share more widely and more unani...

At a time when everything seems to be rushed, it’s a joy to enter the new and stunning Z Prime Italian Steakhouse, to enjoy an upscale meal served with care in a luxurious setting. This corner of East Post Road has housed many restaurants through the years. The latest reincarnation is striking. Enter its doors. Are you in Dubai, Las Vegas or perhap...

Brooklyn's Columbia Waterfront District is a quiet micro-neighborhood that feels more isolated than a glance at a map would suggest. Separated by the BQE from Carroll Gardens and Cobble Hill to the east, cut off from Red Hook by the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel to the south, blocked from the actual waterfront by the shipping yard, it's not the sort of p...

Vi piace la pasta e fagioli? La evitate come un piatto pesante e poco raffinato, la mangiate pensando alla nonna o nelle nuove trattorie fighette, che hanno recuperato le vecchie ricette del passato? E poi, usate i borlotti o i cannellini, la salsa al pomodoro la mettete oppure no? Tutte queste domande avevano già ottenuto risposta più di 70 anni f...

I definitely pissed off a member of the Bamonte family. I didn’t mean to do it. I was trying to explain to Nicole Bamonte that I’m writing about how I will try, and likely enjoy, any establishment that displays one or more autographed photos of a cast member from The Sopranos, that it’s a seal of approval for me when I walk into a place in the Tri-...

Pizza as we know it was invented in Little Italy at Lombardi’s in the earliest years of the 20th century, big communal pies lush with toppings that formed quite a contrast with the scrawny, sparsely dressed pies of Naples that inspired them. In the ensuing years, pizzas proliferated across New York City and around the country, some with quirky regi...

Now that Gruttadauria's Bakery has closed in Greece, and is heading for California, its loyal Rochester customers are bemoaning the loss of their favorite baked goods.  The Italian cookies. The rainbow cookies. The rum cake. The cannoli. These aren't just baked goods. They are the flavors of special memories — of weddings, celebrations and holidays...

Restaurants in New York City come and go. For one to hold firm for years, much less for decades, seems almost an impossible feat. And yet in the Theater District, on 56th Street between Broadway and Eighth Avenue, Patsy’s Italian Restaurant has stood proud since 1944. The icon celebrates its 75th anniversary this year. “I think a big part of our su...

A new steakhouse and Italian spot has debuted in the neighborhood. Located at 43 E. 20th St. in Flatiron, the fresh arrival is called Il Mulino Prime - Gramercy. On the menu, you'll find a variety of Italian favorites from linguine with clam sauce to chicken Parmesan. Or opt for the New York strip steak with truffle fries, which comes heavily recom...

Lo chiamano “The Italian Food Mile”: il miglio più goloso di New York. Si dipana in verticale sulla mappa di Manhattan lungo Broadway, tra la dodicesima (appena sotto Union Square, la piazza che ospita l’iconico mercato contadino) e lo storico grattacielo del Flatiron. Lungo il km abbondante che li lega, si trovano in rapida successione la pizzeria...
