Now that I’ve eaten my way through somebody else’s list (Time Out New York), I’m ready to compile my own 100 spectacular things I’ve tasted in 2012. Look for another five dishes every few days.

NUMBER 5: ICE CREAM CAKE at PARM

Here we go. After a really solid year of eating, I’ve managed to pick the five best dishes I put in my mouth. These are not necessarily from the hottest restaurants or my most memorable dining experiences. But these are the five individual dishes that I’ll be thinking about long after 2012 comes to an end.

Harkening back to a simpler time when Carvel reigned supreme, Parm’s ode to the ice cream cake is both nostalgic and fulfilling. The generous slice is layered with chocolate, strawberry, and pistachio ice creams separated with chocolate ganache and cookie crunchies. Whipped cream, sprinkles, and a maraschino cherry top it off. It’s a completely irresistible treat that’s worth every single calorie. Price: $12

NUMBER 15: OYSTERS at UPSTATE

Believe it or not, New York’s biggest resource at one time was seafood. I’m talking seafood straight from the East River! Sadly, centuries later any fish you might find in Manhattan’s waters also comes with a serious flavor of contaminant. While these five seafood dishes are all prepared in NYC, thankfully the fish comes from waters elsewhere.

Historically, one of the most famous river-dwellers in New York Harbor was the oyster. The awesome craft beer bar Upstate specializes in a rotating list of varieties from the west and east coast (not NYC). Always fresh (this place doesn’t even have a freezer), the oysters are plump and clean (whether they’re briny, creamy, or cucumbery) and pair nicely with well-made beer. The best part is every day they offer a Happy Hour which snags you 6 oysters (your choice) and a pint of a local craft brew for $12. Those prices also make me think of old New York. Price: $2-$2.25 (Happy Hour 5-7)
