1. Empire Biscuit 198 Avenue A, New York, NY 10009 (Alphabet City)

Empire Biscuit is exactly as it sounds... a manically obsessive eatery based around the wonder that are biscuits. They're not ordinary, either -- try one of their custom biscuits, or go with a friend and split the the Snuggah Boo -- a plum, prune & port, goat cheese, and black pepper buttered wonder.

2. Veselka 144 2nd Ave, New York, NY 10003 (East Village)

Since 1954, New Yorkers have depended on Veselka’s cabbage soup as the cure for a hangover. And where else can you get some of the city’s best banana pancakes alongside pierogies and a cheeseburger? Nowhere. On the pierogi front, it doesn’t matter what filling you choose, each fork-tender pocket feels like it came straight out of baba’s kitchen and tastes like a Polish heaven.

4. Crif Dogs 113 Saint Marks Pl, New York, NY 10009 (East Village)

Crif Dogs is to hot dogs like Katz's is to pastrami and Russ & Daughters is to lox. The house-made dogs come in a variety of styles -- go big with one of the bacon-wrapped dogs, like the Tsunami, which comes with a healthy dosage of teriyaki, pineapple, and green onions, or keep it simple with the deep-fried corn dog (made with a super secret batter, of course). Crif Dogs' original location, in the heart of Alphabet City, is home to the phone booth entrance that leads to one of the city's most iconic speakeasies, PDT.
