Coming from Toronto to visit NY for the first time....

  • 4
  • Share

This is my first time coming to NY and want to have the quintessential NY dining experience without falling for tourists traps.

Staying at the Red Roof Inn Manhattan
6 West 32nd Street
New York, NY 10001

Where and what should I do??
Open to all kinds of food.

I am assuming I shouldn't leave without having a slice of pizza...
A NY hot dog
And Deli

So what are your suggestions and what else should be considering for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Thanks from Toronto!

    Best pizza in NY -- NYC has Neopolitan style and coal oven NY-Neopolitan style and gas overn NY style

    Best street food -- assuming you're OK with street food -- after all, it will be pretty fast and allow you to maximize sightseeing and shopping:

    Best of the Union Square Greenmarket

        Toronto has a ton of Korean restaurants, and not particularly a New York experience.
