I have posted here and there about some of my favorite restaurants but never done a full dining guide, per se.
This also is not a dining guide – too overwhelming. Plus I’m a somewhat picky eater and not what anyone would call a food expert.
But I do have my favorites so here are some of them. I plan to add to this post regularly. If you have any recommendations, please share in the comments.
Where I order from when it’s time to Eat My Feelings
Best burger in the neighborhood
Where to eat all of the gluten
The spot for chicken and waffles
Sweet Chick for sure. While they offer other dishes and several variations on chicken and waffles, the classic c&w has never let me down. A hip-hop soundtrack is a big bonus in my opinion.
Cafe Colette and Hotel Delmano (which isn’t actually a hotel). At Cafe Colette, I love the French toast that arrives piping hot in a cast iron skillet. At Delmano, if they have butterscotch pudding on the menu, get it. Both have terrific cocktails too.
The most Scranton bar & restaurant in Brooklyn
Delaware & Hudson, I love you. In fact, I love you so much you’ll get your own blog post one day soon. For now, I’ll tell people that you serve wimpies in the tavern as well as a Pennsylvania Dutch dish called Schnitz und Nepp that I can’t stop thinking about.
Best overpriced pizza
I wish I hated Emmy Squared‘s pizza, honestly, because it’s too expensive for what you get.I included my hand in the pic below for scale. Worse, they charge $4 more for the pepperoni pizza I like when I order via Caviar than they charge in-house ($23 vs $19). I crave the pizza, but that’s not cool.
When you add in Caviar’s service/delivery fees, that’s one expensive six-slice pizza. But delicious.
