99 Miles to Philly
(212) 253-2700
94 3rd Ave
New York, NY 10003
It's a long-held belief among Philadelphians that no one anywhere else can make a cheesesteak the right way. That's exactly what they aim to do at 99 Miles To Philly, which takes its name from the distance to the famous Pat's Steaks. Owner Brad Kranz takes his experience from a stint at Carl's and mixes it with the traditional Whiz-n-onions cheesesteak construct for a Lower East Side eatery that's a little taste of home.

A Salt & Battery
(212) 691-2713
112 Greenwich Ave
New York, NY 10011+7704
Standing tall alongside Greenwich Avenue's Tea & Sympathy empire, this chippie has a fine selection of fried fishes and other choices.

Amsterdam Restaurant & Tapas Lounge, a New American fusion restaurant and lounge located on the Upper West Side across from Columbia University, reopened to the public in November 2004 with an all new modern and warm decor.

B & H Dairy
(212) 505-8065
127 2nd Ave
New York, NY 10003+8312
Travel back in time when you enter this tiny sliver of a restaurant on lower Second Avenue. Back when the good old Lower East Side was populated with appetizing stores (like M Schacht diagonally across Second) and delicatessens, B & H vied for your borscht shekels. Times have changed, but B & H remains a steadfast presence. Why not get your lentil soup here before B & H goes the way of Ratner's and countless others? It might taste like dishwater, but that's part of the ambience.

The Bagel Hole
(718) 788-4014
400 7th Ave
Brooklyn, NY 11215+5058
It should probably be called Bagel Hole In The Wall, given its Manhattanesque slim margins, but the kitchen that stretches back from the front counter delivers some of Brooklyn's tastiest bagels, with a selection of cream cheese spreads you will marvel at. Not ones to give in to the new school of bagelry, Bagel Hole makes fresh-baked, New York-size bagels that fit in the palm of your hand, using only the highest quality ingredients for the best flavor and texture.
