Meet the Tiny Lunch Counter Tucked in a Midtown Loading Dock

New York Craig Cavallo 7 comments

I found El Sabroso after helping a friend move things into a Midtown showroom. We took turns bringing boxes into the freight entrance of 265 37th Street. In the loading dock, where there should have been freight elevators, there was a lunch counter instead, with six stools, one table, and a glossy red menu with the words "El Sabroso Restaurant" at the top.

Steakcraft: Uncle Jack's Kicks It Old School

New York Nick Solares 11 comments

Uncle Jack's Steakhouse has three bustling locations in New York—two in Manhattan and the original location in Bayside, Queens. As is befitting of a true New York steakhouse, each location dry ages its own beef, and in that tradition Uncle Jack's has a purchaser that still heads down to the Meatpacking District at an ungodly hour to personally select the restaurants' beef.

Larb Ubol Brings Serious Isan Thai to 9th Avenue

New York Max Falkowitz 3 comments

By my estimation, Ninth Avenue is home to a couple dozen Thai restaurants between 55th and 30th Streets. And with an exception or two, they're all pretty crummy. But with the arrival of Larb Ubol that might be changing. More

Where to Eat Near Penn Station, NYC (Our Updated Guide)

New York Sam Bresnick 4 comments

Two years ago we shared our picks for where to eat near Penn Station, one of New York's transit hubs in a...let's say challenging food neighborhood. But there's plenty of good food if you know where to look, and much more if you're willing to walk a little bit. To help, here's our updated field guide with everything from quick bites to a full-service meal. More

Fast Food International: Dutch-Chinese Wok to Walk Comes to Times Square

New York Krista Garcia 11 comments

This new branch of the Dutch-based Chinese fast food chain offers stir fried rice and noodles that are fresher than the steam table competition, but it's not exactly a destination. More

A Sandwich a Day: Veneto at Sergimmo Salumeria

Trying to find a decent lunch around Penn Station is hard at the best of times, but battling the crowds to get to Sergimmo Salumeria is worth it. More

Where to Eat Near Penn Station, NYC

New York The Serious Eats Team 20 comments

Although the extended neighborhood around Penn Station is hard to define (walk a few blocks, and you're in... Chelsea? is it the Garment District? is it Midtown West?), it's a place you're likely to end up at some point. It's also not the best food neighborhood in the city. But between the chain restaurants and scuzzy-looking bars, there are good eats to be found. Here are some of our favorite places to grab a bite after your trek in from Long Island, or where you can get your last taste of New York before heading up to Boston for the weekend. More

[Photos: Kathy Chan] When Stumptown first opened, pastries were supplied by Cafe Pedlar, a parade of olive oil bundt cakes and pretzels. Then the lineup started to include croissants from Ceci-Cela, and now? A whole line of sweet and... More

Dear Slice: Good Delivery Pizza for Office at 26th and 11th Avenue?

Slice Adam Kuban 9 comments

Clicking in to the Slice inbox today, we've got ... I want to get pizza for lunch for Jaime B.'s going-away party. Is Waldy's any good? How many people can I feed w/one of his large pies? (Any guesses? I know I can call and ask.) What about Pizza Suprema--how many can I feed with one of their larges? I still have horrible memories of my attempt to treat Adam w/pizza from Lazzara's on his bday at Blueprint, and not having nearly enough food. Is there anyone else you'd suggest? (Am I too far away from Lazzara's to ask them... More

Waldy's Bacon, Chicken, Chipotle Pizza

Slice Adam Kuban 2 comments

OK, Robby T., I had the pizza you recommended. I've gotta say, good call on the toppings. You know I'm generally not an outré toppings kinda guy, but bacon and chipotle—how can you say no? Chicken I could take or leave, but I wanted to stay faithful to your rec. Anyway, man—I gotta say, great combo. But that crust. It was still as tough as I remember. My solution was to place two slices cheese side together and pretend I was eating a delicious chipotle chicken club sandwich.... More

Dear Slice: Why Not Try a Bacon, Chicken, Chipotle Pizza from Waldy's?

Slice Adam Kuban Post a comment

You should try the bacon, chicken, chipotle pizza at Waldy's on Sixth Avenue. --Robby T. -------------------- Dear Robby, I'll try it just for the topping combo, which sounds kind of interesting. Now the crust delivering those toppings ... it needs some work. Waldy's is actually fairly close to the Slice office, but I gave up on it after too many tough-crusted pies. That par-baking thing that they try to sell as a plus on the website ("The crust is par baked ahead of time rather than pre-cooking the entire pizza then reheating it, which creates a uniquely crisp texture") just...

Lunch: New York Pizza Suprema

Slice Adam Kuban 11 comments

New York Pizza Suprema calls this an "upside down pizza," but it's essentially a Sicilian slice that goes crust, cheese, sauce instead of crust, sauce, cheese. We had it for lunch today at Slice–Serious Eats HQ.... More

New York Pizza Suprema

Slice Ed Levine Post a comment

If you find yourself headed to Madison Square Garden for a Knicks or Rangers game or a concert and you have 15 minutes or less to get something to eat, Pizza Suprema is the answer to your prayers. A mere two blocks from a Garden entrance, it looks like a generic pizzeria. Don't be fooled. The regular slices have a crisp crust, a fine if overly sweet sauce and a little too much cheese. Have one regular slice and one slice of the marinara pie—a Sicilian slice coated with marinara sauce containing flecks of fresh onion, then sprinkled with... More
