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

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.

Slice J. Kenji López-Alt 5 comments

A tourist standing at the corner of 38th and 8th after hopping off at Penn Station or the Port Authority might think they've stumbled upon some sort of pizza mecca: I mean, c'mon—there's four slice joints on one corner?

Although the extended neighborhood around Penn Station is hard to define (walk a few blocks, and you're in...

Slice Aaron Mattis 18 comments

Hola, cheeseheads. Please welcome Aaron Mattis to Slice. Aaron just joined us last week as Slice's summer intern (our first dedicated Slice intern, yay!). As a fun first assignment, we sent Aaron up to Penn Station (along with Serious Eats intern Lingbo Li on photo duty) to suss out the best pizza in the busy transit hub.

New York Erin Zimmer 6 comments

No food styling was involved in this photo. Sorry. Right across from Penn Station, D'Aiuto's Pastry Corporation has that old-timey New York facade that makes you want it to be good. Unfortunately, the danishes, fritters, pies, and Italian ices... More
