The Weekly Roundup: Foods of NY Tours In The News, The Stonewall Inn Gets Landmarked And Your NYC Hot Dog Guide

  • Food Tour of New York: New York is huge and it sure has a lot to offer for a hungry traveller. To maximize my time here, and to ensure I didn’t miss anything, I wanted to explore the famous Greenwich Village with locals.  Someone that knows the area and most importantly, where to find the most delicious food . West Greenwich is an old Italian village and many charming restaurants, family owned specialty shops and delicatessens are very good at what they do.  I searched online for the best food tour in New York City, and all signs pointed to these guys, Foods of NY Tours.

  • Does Di Fara Pizza In Brooklyn Make The Best Pizza In The Country? When DeMarco is in the kitchen, it’s like watching a strange sort of ballet. He moves lightly, shaping dough, spreading sauce, and ever so slightly shifting each pizza’s position in the oven. For a finishing touch, he cuts basil, grates Parmesan, and drizzles olive oil over each pie.
  • Where to Eat Hot Dogs in New York: Frankfurters, wieners, red hots, floaters, hot dogs, or tube steaks — call them what you will, weenies are enjoying a vogue right now, perhaps because they often contain offal, or perhaps because they’re so cheap, even the gourmet ones. Here are 18 awesome hot dog restaurants.
  • Time's wd~50 Mini-Doc Offers One More Memorial of the Late and Great Icon: For those still in mourning over the loss of wd~50, Time just dropped its 15 minute documentary about Wylie Dufresne's trailblazing molecular Mecca. The mini-doc, which features a scruffy bespectacled Wylie riding his bike around NYC, is a pretty good (if not a little strange) primer for the ups and downs of the restaurant. 



  • J.G. Melon's Younger Brother Is Almost Ready to Mingle With Greenwich Village Burger Nerds:  Soon, the southwest corner of Bleecker and MacDougal will be home to the second Manhattan location of storied East Side tavern J.G. Melon. This is an area that already has plenty of old, clubby burger taverns, but if the owners nail the decor, the burger, and the cottage fries, this could be a very big hit indeed.  
  • Beignets and Chicory Coffee Bring Taste of New Orleans to MacDougal Street: Cafemarie, the latest newcomer to the block, opened just last week, and is doling out New Orleans-style beignets and chicory coffee from the storefront at 120 MacDougal St.  The space was formerly (and briefly) occupied by a bubble tea shop. Cafemarie is an offshoot of the TriBeCa eatery, Delimarie, at 106 Duane St.
  • BEST PAV BHAJI IN NYC AT MASALA TIMES: We often hear the california verus New York convcersation. If you come from one of the cities, you will always favor and argue in it’s defense. In India, we have the exact debate between Delhi and Mumbai. To every Delhite, Delhi would be better and vice a versa for Mumbaiya’s. The cities differ at the same points as a California and New York. 

  • Lower Manhattan's 10 Best Specialty Food Stores: It wouldn’t be specialty foods without mentioning Chelsea Market, home to many unique food stores. Dickson’s Farmstand, located inside the market, sells hand-selected artisanal meat and meat products. Their natural, ethical and organic products are what makes them distinct, and all meats are sourced from local farms. They can tell you the farm and farmer that each slice of meat came from to ensure the highest quality products.

  • NoHo East Historic District Turned 10 Yesterday! Yesterday, the NoHo East Historic District turned ten years old! Yes, on June 24, 2003, the area that encompasses parts of Bleecker, Mott, and Elizabeth Streets and the Bowery was officially given local landmark protections
