Need: food theme suggestions for next New York trip

I'm looking for a food theme for my upcoming trip. My previous tasting tour themes include, cupcakes, chocolate, and gelato.

Thanks! :)

  1. Macarons, dishes with uni, and ramen +/- hand-pulled noodles.

      1. For real New York foodstuffs: Pizza, bagels, pastrami, and cheesecake. Pizza probably has the largest number of great choices among those items, though. Oh, another one: Matzo ball soup.

          The others are discussed ad nauseum. But where have you had the best matzo ball soup?

          1. re: squid kun

            Probably 2nd Av. Deli. Cafe Edison also has a good one. I'm not sure which other places would be in the running.

              Have you had DBGB's? I've heard good things but not tried yet.

              299 Bowery, New York, NY 10003

        2. You could do a not-so-common ethnic food theme : Western Chinese, Sri Lankan, Nigerian, Senegalese and so on. This'll force you to go around different neighborhoods. That's a good thing.
