Best Cuisine of New York City

New York-Style Pizza

You can't think of New York food without one thing coming to mind: Pizza! The first pizzeria in the country, Lombardi's, opened in Manhattan's Little Italy in 1905.

Grandma Pizza

Sicilian-style pies have a thinner crust and are baked in a square pan. It is baked in a rectangular pan coated with olive oil, topped with mozzarella cheese.

Buffalo Wings

There are several unverified origin stories for Buffalo wings, but most can be traced back to the Bellissimo family at Anchor Bar in Buffalo, New York.

New York-Style Cheesecake

There's nothing more rich, decadent, or insanely satisfying than a slice of New York cheesecake.


Soft-baked pretzels arrived in New Amsterdam in the early 1800s via Dutch immigrants. The salty snack has been a staple of street food ever since.

Lobster Rolls

Lobster Rolls, lobster meat served on a grilled hot dog-style bun, is a Northeast staple. Lobster fishing is common on Long Island.

Manhattan Clam Chowder

Manhattan clam chowder is tomato-based and contains no milk or cream, which sets it apart from its white New England counterpart.

Black and White Cookies

Black and white cookies have a soft, puffed, cake-like base that is flat or slightly domed on top. Originated from Half Moon Cookies, another popular New York dessert.

Pastrami On Rye

Pastrami on Rye, one of the most popular sandwiches of all time, was actually born out of a favor for a friend: Lithuanian immigrant Sussman Volk.

Chicken Riggies

Chicken Riggies – a hearty pasta dish of rigatoni and hot cherry peppers cooked in a creamy tomato sauce – is an Italian menu staple in the Utica-Rome area of New York.
