Whit’s End has moved a few times over the past couple of years, and now they have a location on Beach 97th Street. They still make some of the best pizza you’ll find in the area, and if you don’t feel like pizza, they serve a burger and a lot of seafood - which is half the reason you come here. Get the steamed clams, and bring beer and sunscreen. It’s BYOB, and there isn’t much shade in their big backyard.

The food at Otto isn't awful. Otto is, however, an overpriced tourist trap that seems to exist only to make Eataly look civilized and affordable.

Louie & Ernie’s is a legendary New York-style slice shop in Pelham Bay that’s been open since 1947. Get the sausage pie.
