New York Linnea Zielinski 4 comments

The West Village is one of New York's more receptive neighborhoods to lingering breakfasts, from busy coffee shops to lazy cafes, no shortage of all-day bistros and a wealth of bakeries. So where do we go to start the day while we're there? That depends on the mood: doughnut or croissant, French scrambled eggs or Cuban heuvos rancheros? More

New York Lauren McInnes 12 comments

Two years ago we shared our picks for where to eat near Times Square, the focal point of New York's tourist economy and home to many a chain mega-restaurant.

This guide covers the picks from our original guide, plus our new favorite spots we've encountered since July 2011. More

Our Favorite Lard Breads in NYC

New York Andrew Coe 16 comments

A peppery porkiness suffused the air at Serious Eats World Headquarters last week. The aroma curled around the nostrils of the worker bees, drawing them from their seats toward a big table covered with plates. "Oh my God, I love that smell!" said one. Ignoring that we'd just had lunch, we prepared to sample ten of the loaves variously called lard or prosciutto bread from around the city. Here are our recommendations for loaves you should seek out.

The Best Baguette in New York

New York The Serious Eats Team 20 comments

In honor of Serious Eats Bakery Week, we set out to answer a question that's been on our mind for ages: what's the best baguette in New York? Because for every good baguette, there are dozens of disappointments. Tough, mouth-hurting crusts or doughy, spongy insides. A dried-out crumb or a flavor that's too sweet or too sour or just plain bland. We're tired of suffering bad bread—and wanted to find you the best in the city. More

The Best Cupcakes in New York City

New York Leah Douglas 79 comments

We know, we know—it's been years since cupcakes first hit New York. And Serious Eats is not the sort of blog that breathlessly covers every new cupcakery in the city. But at some point, we came to the realization that, when asked where sold the best cupcakes in New York City, we didn't have an answer. And that just wouldn't do. So we tracked down New York's best.

The Best Carrot Cake in New York City

New York Carey Jones 22 comments

We at Serious Eats have a soft spot in our hearts for carrot cake. And there's no better season for it—it's got those winter spices kicking around, sure, but it's also bright with the promise of carrots and fruits and spring freshness to come. While we all could agree to love carrot cake, none of us felt we had a definitive favorite. So we fanned out over the boroughs, picked up carrot cakes from every corner of New York—over a 29.6 mile geographic spread, to be exact. More
