I’m counting down the 100 best dishes I tasted in 2017…

I might be one of the last food people in New York to discover this dish. Missy Robbins opened Lilia last year in Williamsburg and all the food writers rejoiced. Most especially, they singled out this plate of delicately filled tubes of pasta. Each bite carefully revealed a rich center of luxurious sheep’s milk cheese. The addition of saffron and rehydrated sun-dried tomatoes was quite nice, but it was the addition of honey that puts this dish well over the edge. Price: $23

My first post on this site was for the still excellent pizzeria Kesté. This year they expanded big time with locations in both Williamsburg and the Financial District. And they also got a little fancier with a few new appetizers that were not available at the original Bleecker Street location. Since the pizza has already made my list in year’s past, I have to rave about this amazing little play on arancini. It is a rich ball of spaghetti with bits of ham, peas, and mozzarella. The original Italian fried mac and cheese. Price: $3.50

Leave it to hipster chefs to put an interesting spin on the bar snacks we know too well as chicken wings. Here they fry them and season them with a dry rub of za’atar spice. It gives it a distinct Middle Eastern vibe and when dipped in the labneh ranch and served with a side of pickles, it sings. And not your usual college football song. Price: $12/$17

My search for the best beer in New York continues….
It’s so cool is how tight-knit the local craft beer world is in New York. Most times when I see a unique can being sold, it’s actually a collaboration between breweries. Oftentimes it’s a brewery in Queens and the Bronx coming together, but for Taco Wednesday the breweries are practically neighbors. (more…)

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

As much as I’d like to eat four donuts, the reality is I would hurt myself. We have to know our limitations. At Rider, they were kind enough to let me order just one donut. It was sprinkled with lemon and fennel sugar with a side of creme fraiche. It turned out to be so good I wanted three more.

Price: $12

Although it may sound strange to American tastes, buttery miso makes a very smart base for ice cream – especially when studded with sweet and slightly acidic cherry pieces. After tasting this, the concept of cherry vanilla becomes irrelevant. How come more people aren’t demanding Miso Cherry?
