One of the most famous New York's restaurants is "Katz's Delicatessen," and it has maintained its popularity since the opening in 1888. This kosher-style restaurant location is 205 E Houston St, New York, NY 10002. Also, this place is known as "Katz's of New York City." If you decide to visit it, you must order their best meal, pastrami on rye. The pastrami is incredible, fall-apart tender, with a crust of black pepper and various spices. 

We suppose that you watched the romantic comedy "When Harry Met Sally," and that you remember Meg Ryan's fake orgasm scene. Well, it was filmed right in Katz's. They marked the table at which Ryan and Billy Crystal sat, with a sign that says, "Where Harry met Sally... hope you have what she had! Enjoy!"

The founders of this restaurant are Kine and Samba Niang, who grew up in Dakar. They maintain an exotic but not strange menu with modern versions of traditional dishes that include high-quality fresh ingredients.

If you pick this restaurant for your next meal, we recommend their specialty "Thiebu Djen" (White or Red Jollof Rice - both versions are tasty), Thu Yapp (lamb in onion sauce, mixed with tomatoes and served with rice). The food tastes heavenly, and the prices are reasonable.

2. Di Fara Pizza

Many New Yorkers claim that they had the best pizza at "Di Fara Pizza "

"Di Fara Pizza" is one of the best pizzerias in New York City, and it's located at 1424 Avenue J in the Midwood section of Brooklyn, New York City. This is a small family-run restaurant owned by pizza master Domenico DeMarco who operates it since 1965. DeMarco is so devoted that he handmade each pizza and uses only the best ingredients from Italy.

Moreover, the pizzeria is closed when he is not available! Since this is a family business, three of DeMarco's seven children work in the restaurant's back section. So, stop wondering where to find the best pizza in NY, since we highly recommend the pizza from "Di Fara Pizza"! It's so yum!

1. Mario's

Mario's Restaurant let you feel the authentic Neapolitan cuisine

 If you decide to walk down Arthur Avenue and look around the Bronx's Little Italy neighborhood, you should definitely have your lunch break at "Mario's." This is an old New York restaurant, as it's open since 1919. Every bite is so delicious since they're using only the most exceptional high-quality ingredients. 

Moreover, their fresh sauces, hot slices of bread, octopus salad, spiedini with anchovy sauce, and other authentic recipes are some of the many great dishes that have made people return to "Mario's" over and over again. 

It's a hard time choosing the tastiest one since all of them are excellent. However, we recommend Mario's delicious seafood salad, dotted with black olives, as it's so refreshing.
