I've been to NYC several times and there are some places I have to eat every single time I go.
Despite a few bad reviews, this bakery really has the best cupcakes in the world.
America's first pizzaria still serves some of the best pizza I've ever had. Get the margherita. Classic.
Get the french fry sampler basket. There's plenty for two or even four people to share if you get burgers too. My favorites are the sweet potato fries with the maple dipping sauce. Heavenly.
Terrible horrible service, but the Frrrozen Hot Chocolate is worth the wait and the cranky people. On a normal day the wait is more than an hour. Go down the street to Dylan's Candy Bar or to Bloomingdales which is just another block away. However, if you buy the packet from the gift shop you can take it home and make your own. It's cheaper, tastes the same and you don't have to deal with the grumps who work there.
Everything is peanut butter! You can even get a boxed lunch just like Mom used to make. Lots of fun. Totally brings you back to childhood. Don't go right at lunch time though as this place is right near NYU.
This little gelato place is on the dining concourse at Grand Central Terminal. If you sit downstairs, it almost feels like you're on a train or in a station from another era. I take mine upstairs because I don't think there's a grander place on earth than the main concourse at Grand Central.
It's expensive. If you want to sit outside, you have to have a reservation, but I'd suggest making one. Inside is nice, a little crowded, tables are close, but despite reviews, the food IS good, and if you sit outside, the experience is just exquisite.
