Cheddar Kurtwurst From Biergarten at the Standard

Even when it's chilly, Anne hits this outdoor spot for a cold pilsner and a plate of warm German-style sausages. "They're cheesy and oozy and so good!" The only downside: You occasionally have to duck if you eat near the popular Ping-Pong tables. "Worth it!" she says. 848 Washington St.; standardhotels.com

Beef-Cheek Ravioli From Babbo

For years, Anne was Mario Batali's sous chef on Iron Chef America, so it's no wonder she craves food from Mario's flagship restaurant, Babbo. The beef-cheek ravioli here are topped with crushed squab liver and black truffles. "They're meaty and full-flavored, with the liver sauce adding just the right amount of gaminess," Anne says. "It's a perfect combination of ingredients, all wrapped up in the perfect pasta package." 110 Waverly Pl.

Sesame Bagel and Iced Redeye From 11th St. Cafe

Every morning, Anne hit this cafe for breakfast: a toasted (dark!) sesame bagel with cream cheese and tomato. She pairs that with an iced redeye — a large iced coffee with a shot of espresso. "I never drink hot coffee. I want it iced, even in the winter!" 327 W. 11th St.; 212-924-3804

Chocolate-Mint Cookies From Milk & Cookies Bakery

"I love these cookies because they're crispy on the outside but soft and moist on the inside," Anne says. Her top pick, the chocolate-mint ones, are made with seriously fancy ingredients: Guittard cocoa, Madagascar vanilla, organic milk and European-style butter. "The mint chips add the perfect flavor and crunch." 19 Commerce St.; milkandcookiesbakery.com

Daddy-O Burger With Tater Tots From Daddy-O

Like most chefs, Anne is a night owl, so she swings by this late-night spot (open until 4 am) for dinner. She's a sucker for the burger — medium-rare — but her favorite part of the meal is on the side: "the tater tots!" 44 Bedford St.; 212-414-8884
