New York Restaurant T-Shirts

This is kind of a weird one, but here goes. I have a friend who just moved out of New York and I want to buy her a bunch of New York local restaurant T-Shirts so she can wear them in L.A. and sneer at people who don't recognize the names ;)

So far I have gotten her a shirt from "Prune". Any other recommendations on cool, distinctive t-shirts that only a Manhattanite would recognize? Nothing too famous like Peter Luger's or something...

  1. i love my tshirt from sammy's in LES. the food is not that great, we still had fun, and got a free tshirt after spending a lot for an overpriced meal. i've had many people ask/comment about it. seen several people outside of NY with the shirt on. i assume the tshirt would be for sale.

    chinatown ice cream factory might be a nice spot as well.

    1. Yummy Noodles in Chinatown.

      1. Shake Shack - although this might have to wait till March/April when they open again.

        1. Crif Dogs in the east village!

          1. Wo Hop!! chice of black or white ;-)
