I have posted here and there about some of my favorite restaurants in NYC 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. It is decidedly not a trendy list–look elsewhere for that.
But I do have my favorites so here are some of them.
Best square pie
GG’s in the East Village. I just love this little spot. From its delicious pizza to its charming pressed tin ceiling to the always-fun playlists, GG’s is a go-to. And the cocktail list is terrific.
Best fried chicken
Root & Bone, it’s yours. I have never been disappointed. Plus the service is so thoughtful.
Best quick breakfast in Midtown Manhattan
Little Collins or Ground Central. I wish Little Collins were a bit more spacious, and I wish Ground Central were quieter, but both are gems in an area dominated by chains.

That’s several thousand dollars worth of truffles pictured above. I assume they’re kept under lock and key.
