The pizza at PQR is rectangular, and it’s covered with things like broccoli rabe, burrata, sausage, and pumpkin. It’s all just a little bit fancy and also very good, and the crust is both crispy and fluffy, and you’ll want to eat it plain. PQR is mostly a takeout slice place, however, so you probably shouldn’t plan a date here - although if you want to eat a slice by yourself, you can sit on a stool up front or at one of the tables in the back. Or just pick up and some pizza and eat it at home. And feel free to get the slice with pumpkin on top. It’s roughly six times better it sounds.

The New York experience is really about making this gigantic metropolis feel smaller. We’re really all just looking for a few comfortable places with familiar faces in them to retreat to after a long day. Viand is one of those places.

Moti Mahal Delux, on the Upper East Side, is the first US franchise of the massive Indian restaurant chain from New Delhi.
Neil's Coffee Shop
The food at Neil's hasn't changed in half a century, but we're okay with that. This Upper East Side diner is a classic.

PizzArte is not just another pizza joint. It also happens to be an art gallery. That must have sounded awesome in the business plan.
This West Village Italian spot is starting to feel just a tad dated - but the food is as good as ever. Try it for a special dinner, and order pasta.
Trattoria L’icontro is not only awesome, but worthy of a trip to Astoria with a group of your friends. Everything about the space is thoroughly cheesy and overstated, but that’s kind of the whole point. No gimmicks, just really good Italian food and really nice people.

Emily not only has some of the best pizza in the city, it’s also got one of the best burgers. That means you should probably get there soon.
