There currently aren’t many options for Chicago-style deep dish in NYC. Maybe because New Yorkers are typically skeptical of any pizza that you can’t fold in half. If you want to eat deep dish, one of your only options is Emmett’s. This is a tiny place in Soho that feels like an old-school tavern, and it’s where you can get a pizza that’s several inches thick and full of melted cheese. The crust is a little dry - but, if you like cheese, it’ll probably make you happy. The thin crust pizzas here are also pretty good, although you don’t really need to pay attention to the rest of the menu.

Jack's Wife Freda
A good spot for your weekend brunch rotation, but don't rely on it for dinner. Jack's Wife Freda does not get better when the sun goes down.
Ed's Lobster Bar
We’ve put this one off long enough and it’s time to come right out and say it – we don’t love Ed’s Lobster Bar. It’s all reasonable ocean fare, but none of it leaves us anxiously awaiting next time.
Lure Fishbar is still just as much of a Soho party yacht as it was when it opened in 2004. The food has only gotten better.

Whatever your restaurant need, Lil Frankie’s can probably solve it. This is the ultimate utility player.
Mama’s Too is a tiny pizza place on the Upper West Side, and it’s where you’ll find some of the best slices in the area. Get the square pepperoni one.
