On Food Network's Boy Meets Grill, Bobby Flay checks out the monster-sized burritos at Cosmic Cantina in New York, NY.
For true New York-style pizza, look no further than America’s first, and some say best, pizzeria in the U.S. Since 1897, Lombardi’s has been winning over New Yorkers like Rachael Ray with their perfect balance of marinara and mozzarella, all atop a thin crust baked in a coal-fired oven.
For more than 100 years, Faicco's Pork Store has been a New York institution. Bobby notes, "You can feel the passion behind the product." In addition to expert cuts of pork, Faicco's outdoes itself with homemade rice balls and its Italian Special sub sandwich stuffed with choice meats.
Bobby Flay, host of Food Network's Boy Meets Grill, heads to Patsy's Restaurant in New York, NY, where they've been dishing out pizzas and pasta using fresh ingredients for more than 75 years.
The Little Pie Company once fit in owner Arnold Wilkerson's apartment. But demand grew, and now they're serving thousands of New Yorkers their famous Sour Cream Apple Walnut and the über-chocolatey Mississippi Mud Pie. Indulge in classics like Cherry Pie and, of course, New York Cheesecake.
Bobby loves picking up lobster from this Chelsea Market spot. In addition to lobster, it also sells 650 varieties of live, fresh and frozen seafood throughout the year. For a quick and delicious seafood-filled meal, try their lobster rolls, oysters on the half-shell, or some of the handmade sushi.
Bobby’s hankering for Cuban food takes him across the river to Jersey City’s Hardgrove Cafe. The “very simply prepared” cuisine here includes such scrumptious Cuban staples as Ropa Vieja, Lechon Asado and Mofongo. For a sweet treat, try the customer favorite: finger-lickin’-good fried plantains.
On Food Network's Boy Meets Grill, Bobby Flay finds German specialties and sausages at Koglin German Royal Hams in Grand Central Terminal, New York.
Bobby's love of seafood takes him straight to the experts. Located right in the famed Grand Central Terminal, this market has become synonymous with gourmet, artisanal eats. Stop by for fresh shellfish, mussels, or a variety of fresh produce and prepared salads.
Bobby's trip to Kum Gang San was a Boy Meets Grill first because this is where you can grill Korean barbecue at the table. Be it thinly sliced boneless rib-eye steak (Bul Go Ki) or jumbo shrimp (Sae Woo Gui), Bobby says, "It's about sharing and it's just fun."
The chocolates at Li-Lac Chocolates keep tourists (and Bobby) coming back for more. You'll find a range of melt-in-your-mouth chocolates at Li-Lac, from salted caramel to marshmallow bars. But the Empire State Building and Statue of Liberty molded chocolates stand high above the rest.
This well-known specialty food shop has all the fixings for a gourmet meal at home: fresh pastas, prime meats, seafood and imported cheeses. Don't feel like cooking? Choose from prepared Italian dishes, lobsters and rotisserie chickens that can be dressed up with any of the house-made sauces.
Looking for a quick bite to eat in the middle of Times Square? Head to Times Deli Cafe. Bobby stopped by for breakfast to order a New York-style egg sandwich. You can order a classic bacon, egg and cheese sandwich, or follow Bobby's lead and have sausage instead of bacon.
Swing by specialty Italian cheese shop Joe's Dairy on Sullivan Street for ready-made sandwiches and charcuterie-style snacks. Bobby swears by the mozzarella, made daily and served fresh or smoked.
