NYC first visit (kind of) - where to eat to feel like you're in NY!

Di Palo's (200 Grand St, New York, NY 10013
(212) 226-1033) is the most authentic cheese place in NYC

For authentic NY Pizza go to Ben's on 3rd st and MacDougal and get a slice of plain cheese and maybe a slice of plain cheese Sicilian then you can go several doors down to Artichoke and get a slice of their artichoke pie (not traditional but great)

For hot dogs Crif Dogs (113 Saint Marks Pl, New York, NY 10009) is pretty great. Go thru the phone booth for entrance to the hidden Speak Easy for a drink.

Great Dive Bar is Blue and Gold Tavern in East Village. The place is a hole that hasn't changed in over 50 years but they do offer single malts for only $5 and it doesn't get more authentic unless you go to Milano's on Houston.

The best italian pastry place is Veniero's (342 E 11th St, New York, NY 10003 (212) 674-7070) No one does a better canolli
