I always visit either Stage Deli or Carnegie Deli for sandwiches or Motzoh ball soup.  They also have outstanding bakery goods. When you are downtown in Little Italy, cannoli at Ferrara Bakery & CafeRusso's Mozzarella & Pasta has the best fresh mozzerella, ricotta and prima sal, making it for over 100 years, next door is Veniero's Pastry, also in business over 100 years, for biscotti.

A lobster roll from Luke's Lobster - there are several locations but I hit up the UWS location.  If you are near Meatpacking / Chelsea a lobster roll from Cull & Pistol in Chelsea Market is a great runner-up.

A burger from Burger Joint hidden behind a curtain in the Le Parker Meridien New York lobby. 

The "Hay Roasted Oysters" from Maysville + a whiskey tasting because why not?  I'm craving these as I write this.

The Bee Sting pizza from Roberta's.

I would try Wong Kee Restaurant if you enjoy chinese food. It's good and you get to experience community sitting. Katz's Delicatessen is a classic NYC joint specially late night. You must have a hot dog at Gray's Papaya. Cheesecake at Juniors Restaurant Main Cncrs is a nice finish to any meal.

Nom nom nom :)

I'm going with the touristy staples over "foodie" choices, but I do truly love each...

A deli sandwich, from Katz's Delicatessen or Carnegie Deli. I love a pastrami Reuben with pickles on the side and a vanilla Egg Cream.

A bagel with cream cheese and lox, from pretty much any corner deli or bodega.

Dim Sum in Chinatown. There are a few huge places, like Jing Fong or Golden Unicorn, where you're seated at a large table with other diners, and tray after tray comes around. (This works best when you can split the small plates with friends.) Or you can pick a smaller place - see what looks popular with locals on a weekend morning.

Clam chowder and a few raw oysters at the Grand Central Oyster Bar. Sit at the bar for a cheap-ish meal in an iconic setting.

Cheesecake from Juniors Restaurant Main Cncrs. There's a counter at Grand Central in addition to the restaurant in Brooklyn. Go with plain or cherry or strawberry-topped. The other varieties are great too, but not as iconic.

Hi .

You must try Cosme restaurant. It is delicious and well known for a contemporary Mexican cuisine, try the duck it will melt in your mouth.

For a good great burger, you should try J.G. Melon on the upper east side. The burger taste and the decoration of the place makes you feel that you are in the sixties.

For street Food, you should visit Chelsea Market in Chelsea. A great place for different food from different parts of the world.

For a nice oriental taste, try Manousheh in West Village.

You should try and go to the bar at Baccarat Hotel & Residences New York. A luxurious experience.

For a nice Italian food, please try Locanda Verde in Tribeca, one of the Robert di Nero restaurants.

You want to try a great BBQ then go to Mighty Quinn's Barbeque, an old school American BBQ. They have restaurants in upperEast side and west village check them online for locations.

For a nice light lunch, try The East Pole Kitchen & Bar upper East side.

For a good sushi with reasonable price, go to Poke ranked number 26 on Zagat 2015.

There is a lot of places that I know. If you want more info. let me know.

Enjoy your trip

I had pastrami at Katz's Delicatessen  and it was great but I also had a wonderful pastrami and brisket sandwich at Pastrami Queen.

If you can try the pulled pork and brisket in Mighty Quinn's Barbeque, it's delicious. 

I also loved the egg benedict with smoked salmon and biscuits at Bubby's High Line

And of course you have to eat bagels with salmon, maybe at Russ & Daughters

Hello Radhina! I would say a hamburger from Shake Shack, a steak from Smith & Wollensky (the NY cut sirloin / on the bone) is exquisite, a slice of pizza at Lombardi's Pizza, a delicious salad from Just Salad and last but not least and invigorating breakfast at Le Pain Quotidien.

Enjoy it!
