17. Bacon cheddar tots
Public School 214 (address and info)
These scratch-made little nuggets of potato, cheese, and bacon are blended together in perfect harmony and then deep-fried. They are then served hot in a skillet with a side of house Sriracha ketchup. Make sure you order these when you go, in fact, you might want to save some time and order two.

Your first hurdle will be actually getting a reservation to this restaurant, the next will be pronouncing items on the menu. But after your first bite, you’re not concerned about details: Chef/owner David Uygur’s menu doesn’t disappoint. Try the taglierini, it’s quite delightful.
