For the fourth year in a row, I present the 100 most exciting dishes I’ve consumed during my food adventures around the five boroughs. Look for another five dishes every few days.
I have to give credit where credit is due. While there are now many publications that release a 100 Best list each year, the one that gave me the inspiration was Time Out New York (Tony). I’ve been scouring and conquering their annual list for almost five years now. And although I didn’t officialy write about my journey this year, I still managed to eat most of their recommended dishes. Here are five that I never would have discovered without their guidance.
NUMBER 80: THE GODFATHER at GRAHAM AVENUE DELI & MEATS
When I first moved to New York and I could get an overstuffed sandwich at any corner deli for $5, I was impressed. Not so much 10 years later. It takes a special kind of deli sandwich to make me take notice. Graham Avenue Deli & Meats is that place. Established in 1985, this Italian butcher and deli makes killer (and I mean killer sandwiches). The Godfather is a soft seeded hoagie that has amazingly been soaked in oil and vinegar. Inside, the sandwich is stuffed with provolone cheese, mortadella, copocollo, spicy sopressata, spicy roasted peppers, and arugula. Drizzled with more oil, vinegar, basil, and parmesan, it’s a wonderful play on sweet and spicy and makes me excited about deli sandwiches once again. Price: $7.75
