49. Maple bacon bar
Donut Bar (address and info)
Since its inception in 2013, Donut Bar has come up with countless styles and flavors of this sweet treat that keep people coming back for more. It’s no wonder that over two years later there is still a line out the door every day. No matter how many varieties it creates, there is no better flavor combination of savory and sweet than this mix of a classic maple donut and strips of salty bacon.
50. Borrego tostada
Común Kitchen & Tavern (address and info)
Común, Chef Chad White’s Baja-inspired East Village eatery, has all kinds of delicious build-your-own options, but if you don’t want to think, just go with the borrego tostada. The crispy tostada shell is piled with roasted lamb leg, frijoles charros, cilantro, lime, and red onion.
