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

I just got back from another trip to Philadelphia. And while there, of course, I had to try another of the city’s famed cheesesteaks. One day (after many more trips to Philly), I will have an answer for what I think is the best cheesesteak in the city of Brotherly Love. For now, I say it is Dalessandro’s.

No question, you need to head 90 miles southwest to appreciate a real cheesesteak. But I often get asked (mostly by international visitors), where to get the best cheesesteak in NYC.

Before Brooks Headley opened the vegan burger sensation Superiority Burger, he was the famed dessert chef of Michelin-rated Del Posto. And his soft serve/sorbet combo feels like one of his composed plated dessert but in a fast food atmosphere. Flavors range seasonally but the tangy sorbet (like concord grape) balances the rich creaminess of a gelato like vanilla labne and it’s all topped with some crunchy brittle-like garnish. Price: $5

I’m not one to be taken in by hype. And in the New York food world there is so much of it. Sure, I’ll give the cronut or David Chang’s fried chicken sandwich a try. I like to try new things. But I will not stand in line for hours just to be able to taste it. And just because people are buzzing about it doesn’t always mean it’s good. It means the business has good publicity people.
