Every week, I document another dish that impressed and satiated me during my food adventures around New York City
I’ve never been a fan of steakhouses. They’re just so uninteresting. I like a tender filet mignon or fatty ribeye as much as the next macho carnivorous guy. But I can’t get past paying top dollar for nothing more than meat and potatoes. Maybe a little salt, pepper, and butter too.
M. Wells is probably the steakhouse of my dream. Avant garde chef Hugue Dufuor has expanded his M. Wells empire to include this destination chophouse in the middle of post-industrial Long Island City. The room is very hip, classy, and modern. It made me love the place before I tasted any food.
My search for the best pizza in New York continues….
We have just about every style of pizza in New York, but the two that are most often associated with the city are coal oven and the cheap corner slice. When people want to try “New York pizza” they usually mean one of these styles.
