Are there any famous ny restaurants (deli's, pizza, etc) close to the Beacon? I've always heard about deli's that serve gigantic sandwhiches, or killer pastrami, or other famous sandwhiches. I'm hoping to catch at least one of those deli's along with a true ny slice of pizza, and any other staples that I can say I've done while visiting ny. Any help or suggestions are appreciated....Thank you!!

Grays Papaya - Best Hotdogs in the world. Great spot to hit after an ABB concert. 72nd and Broadway steps from the Beacon.

Pizza!!!

NY Pizza is the BEST!

Edit - links I provided don't work. I'll quote my post from 2007 where I ate pizza 7 out of 13 days in NY.

quote:
Earlier I asked for some input on your favorite pizza places in New York. I am a Pizza lover and wanted to make pizza eating a big part of my NY trip. I wasn't able to make it to all of the places suggested and some places I looked for, but could not find. Here's what I thought:

Lombardi's is the best. All the pizza I had ranged from real good to great, but Lombardi's sticks out from all the rest. It is the only place I went were we did have a considerable wait (25 minutes and that was an off hour). The staff was real friendly. The pizza crust was the perfect combination of the crispness, yet softness and blackenness. Cheese and spices were great. I always order pepperoni and the grease was not too bad.

I ate at Patsy's on 60th St. If all the Patsy's chain stores in the city are like the one on 60th street, then they got some real good pizza. Crust and spices were not quite as good as Lombardi's. Pizza a little greasier than Lombardi's. The service was adequate, but not great. No waiting for a table at lunch time.

Others:

John's on Bleecker Street - great pizza, had the crispest crust. Busy, but good service. No wait right at lunch time (we probably got lucky). This gives my two favorite places a strong run for the money.

Grimaldi's in Brooklyn. Real good pizza. Least grease of all places. Sauce was sweeter. Minimal wait after typical lunch hour. Service ok.

Sal and Carmine's. Is that Sal and CArmine behind the counter? Those guys are cool. Pizza was real good, but I prefered the above mentioned shops. Real small inside and fairly busy near dinner time.

Patsy's on 118 and 2nd in East Harlem. I think this is different than the other good Patsy's I mentioned before - the menu was different and the pizza was pretty different too. The neighborhood isn't great I guess, but the restaraunt was pretty nice although basic. The pizza was good, but I don't think I'd go back to this location to eat again. If you like burnt black crust then this is the place to come.

Wish there was some good coal oven NY style pizza around me in Ohio.

Late night after ABB show. My friend and I stumbling towards SOHO from bar to bar, taxi to taxi out of nowhere we hit a time warp and go back 60 years and end up at this late night diner, with waiters in white shirts and black ties, old time booths, pastrami on rye. It was unbeleivable. Not sure where we were and could probably not find the place again in 100 visits but it was NYC authentic diner.

SOHO has some great bars, take a walk though the Soho area (Joey Ramone Place), china town is chaos, little italy is right out of the Godfather 2. have fun.

Famous Ray's (all over Manhattan) is always a good bet for sandwiches and pizza slices.

Zabar's is right up Broadway around 85th, I think.

The Manhattan Diner (like 90th and Broadway) is great for breakfast.

is it the Fatman's Deli that's on the west side of Broadway about a block north of 76th for late night pigging out? I know it was open after 4 AM once when Scotty and me made a run.

Sorry if the names and locations are a little off. I probably was too when I ate there...

And the Parkway Grocery is right across the street for everything you need.

Man, I wish I was going this year. Eating in NYC is an adventure in itself. SO many great places to eat...

Well, not close to the Beacon, but still a worthwhile cab ride. Katz' Delicatessen 205 E. Houston Street. Accept no substitutes.

If it's deli you want, you will have to go a little further south from the Beacon area, but so worth the trip. 56th and 7th Avenue is the world famous Carnegie Deli (with those "gigantic sandwiches" of which you speak). Tourist and local alike line up to pay homage at the mecca of pastrami and corned beef. Bring an appetite, since the sammies are as big as your head (or bring a friend to share). Down the block is the Stage Deli, which has equally big sandwiches and their own loyal clientele.

When I am away from NYC for any extended time, I start to crave a pastrami on rye w/ extra mustard. The quintessential NYC experience after the dirty water dog. Gray's Papaya is highly recommended.

When you're on town, I would recommend trying the many different ethnic cuisines represented here (Little Korea on 32nd and 6th Ave, Little India on Lexington Ave in the 20's and Chinatown for dim sum & Little Italy afterwards for dessert). All a trip away from the Beacon, but well worth it.

I gotta go with Big Nick's. One sign advertises the best hamburger in New York, and the other says they have the best pizza in New York.

I can't argue either way. Plus, they'll deliver to Beacon hotel rooms!

I've eaten many items on their menu and enjoyed them all. A buddy with me one year flipped out over their Greek lasagna (I forget what they call it) and said it was the best he ever had.

It's only a short walk -- go to Big Nick's.

A real New Yorker can tell you the corned beef is on the top and the pastrami is on the bottom:

Big Nick's is absolutely worth the visit



... known for it's subtle, yet tasteful decor, in addition to its 16 page menu offering everything under the sun. As you can see, you don't need to read the menu, just look at the signs.

Brofan almost got it right- the FAIRWAY across the street from the Beacon packs more food per square foot than any other grocery store you have ever seen

We went to check out the place from the Seinfeld shows, Tom's it was called, I think it is up around 110th and Broadway. We ate there a few years back and the food was actually really good, helpings were very large and the price was good.

We had some very good Deli right up the street from
the Beacon at a place called Artie's. On Broadway, between
82nd and 85th. Very hectic atmosphere, with real good
food. The walk back to the hotel was not long enough to
help with digesting those meals!

If you like some good late night chinese food, take a cab down to Chinatown and go to a place called Wo Hop. Great local place, nothing fancy, not even windows, as you walk downstairs like you are going into someone's basement. Its literally in the basement of 17 Mott Street, there is also one at 15 Mott Street at street level, but you want the one in the basement.

Also, try Florios for some good Italian Food in Little Italy; I think its on Grand. Its really not a touristy place and you can smoke at the bar. It actually doubles as a cigar bar and its one of the only places where you can smoke in the city. The food is real good too. If you like cigars this is a great place. He has some real good ones too.
