I’m counting down the 100 best dishes I tasted in 2016…

At his stall in Vanderbilt UrbanSpace, Daniel Delaney has changed his fried chicken menu a number of times. First there were drumsticks then giant wings and finally spicy chicken sandwiches. The current offering is great with a sweet golden breading that is balanced by the fiery hot sauce, mayo, and pickles. Price: $8

Egg sandwiches are so ubiquitous in New York that I probably should devote an entire journey to searching for the best of them. Each year I discover a new often hipster place upgrading our typical breakfast sandwich. This one is a juice and coffee bar in the heart of Williamsburg and their hefty egg sandwich is no joke. A sweet, buttery Parker roll holds up scrambled eggs and white cheddar cheese and then soaks up the smashed avocado and generous slathering of peppy spicy sriracha. Price: $6

Every week, I document another dish that impressed and satiated me during my food adventures around New York City

One of the most anticipated openings this year was from Ken Friedman and April Bloomfield, the chef and brains behind such hits as The Spotted Pig and The Breslin. White Gold Butchers is something different. It’s a neighborhood butcher shop that supplies meat to the duo’s other restaurants and also offers fresh quality cuts to the local residents.

It’s also a restaurant itself with an array of meaty sandwiches and a dinner service. And the exciting part is you can eat your food while watching the butchers break down whole animals. If that’s your thing.

It doesn’t get trendier than avocado toast. It’s as simple as can be – smashed avocado maybe toasted with some lemon and chili flakes and placed on a thick piece of toast. No wonder it’s such a brunch sensation. Gotan adds a little salty feta, bright mint, and sweet cherry tomatoes for a complete midday experience. Price: $8

FOSTER SUNDRY, 215 Kinckerboxer Avenue (at Troutman Street), Bushwick, Brooklyn

I never rest – even on Thanksgiving. Maybe because especially on Thanksgiving there is a lot to eat. And I spent the last week trying to find some amazing dish that would be appropriate for the big day’s Dish of the Week.

In previous years, I found some great turkey burgers and turkey sandwiches. That would be the obvious thing, but this year I accidentally stumbled upon a sandwich that was crazier than I could even imagine.

ESME, 999 Manhattan Avenue (between Green and Huron Street), Greenpoint, Brooklyn

I love when I get approached with a food dilemma. And it’s even more rewarding when I can solve it and then be involved in the eating part too.

For Urban Adventures, we often put together customized food and history tours. And this particular project was a very cool tour of the changing Brooklyn waterfront. We started in Dumbo and ended in Greenpoint and we needed a place with a wide range of food options that could seat a large group on a weekday afternoon.

Esme, which I randomly stumbled upon a few months ago in the northern part of Greenpoint, immediately came to mind. And they were happy to have us.
