All in New York - New York

Hometown Hot Pot & BBQ

In Little Italy (close enough to Chinatown), there is a hot pot restaurant that has garnered quite some praise from Chinese friends of mine. Hometown Hot Pot and BBQ offers AYCE hot pot and bbq items (separately or together if desired).

The Lobster Place

One of the spots we had to visit in NYC was the Chelsea Market in the Meatpacking District. This place is every foodies dream and they seem to have anything for everyone. The place that we wanted to try the most though, was the Lobster Place (and the C&P Galley). 

Katz’s Delicatessen

Basically a landmark in New York City. This is probably the most favorite restaurant to get the most famous dish in the most famous city in all of the US. The Deli sandwich at Katz Deli is a rite of passage for many New Yorkers it seems. Maybe the locals love it or grow weary of it, but it isn't going away. This place is New York City.

Babbo Ristorante

The brainchild of one Mario Batali, Babbo Ristorante is just one of several restaurants that Batali has in New York City. This quaint Italian restaurant in Greenwich Village showcases some fine Italian cuisine with a particular focus on the pasta. 

Turntable Chicken Jazz

The entrance to Turntable is hidden in an alley next to Empire Pizza. Because it's on the second floor, the signage is terrible and you have to be on the lookout for it. The stairway is pretty sketch too. Am I going to eat fried chicken or get killed?
