Get Your Goulash On at Korzo Haus

Though their claim to fame is the fried Korzo Burger, they also have some choice central European fare. On a cold winter's day, nothing is better than the Spicy Hungarian Goulash ($5 small / $15 large). More

It's Time for Kafana's Hibernation Fare

New York Max Falkowitz Post a comment

If the cold weather alone doesn't convince you, the long walk to Avenue C just might; cold snaps like this call for something like braised beans and sausage, and Kafana, a tiny Serbian spot in Alphabet City, does especially good versions of both. More

Austrian-born chef Eduard Frauneder (the Edi of Edi and the Wolf) has called Alphabet City home for nearly 5 years.

A Sandwich a Day: Hanger Steak Sandwich at Cornerstone Cafe

New York Molly Goldman Post a comment

When I hear that a sandwich costs $11, I never dismiss it, but I do question it. A pricey sandwich has to legitimize itself with good ingredients, a hefty weight, and all-around deliciousness. Fortunately, the Hanger Steak Sandwich ($11) at Cornerstone Cafe is no letdown. More

Drinks Carly Wray 4 comments

"I was in Newport, maybe 15 or 16 years old, working as a busboy when the movie Cocktail came out," says Greg Seider, partner and head bartender at The Summit Bar in New York's Alphabet City. "I was just obsessed with it. I memorized it. The bartenders would ask me how to make certain drinks, and after I got off my shift, they'd let me go behind the bar and do...you know." He mimes flipping a bottle, and laughs. "They probably just thought it was cute." More

A Sandwich a Day: P.H.O. Real from Sunny and Annie's

New York Carey Jones 4 comments

Points for any corner deli serving an ambitious (and seemingly infinite) sandwich menu 24/7. But the P.H.O. Real just didn't do it for us. More

A Sandwich a Day: Sigmund Pretzel Shop's Smoked Salmon with Dill Cream Cheese

New York Ava McAlpin Post a comment

I entered Sigmund Pretzel Shop planning to order the roast beef, horseradish and red onion pretzel sandwich ($7), but they didn't have it that day. I wasn't too disappointed, because the intense humidity that day made roast beef seem a little too heavy—their smoked salmon sandwich (also $7) appealed quite a bit more. More
