    One month from today, I'm off to NYC for the first time in almost 12 years.
    Couldn't possibly be more excited, so I've come to you for some tips. Mostly on food.

    1) Best pastrami and chopped liver sandwich?
    2) Best pizza?
    3) Best hot dog?
    4) Best acid reflux relief?

    Also, I'll be back east for 12 days, if any of the SportsJournalists.com northeast crew wants to grab a beer or a game or anything like that, it'd be great.

    Any other suggestions are more than welcomed.

    Thanks folks.

    I've been a vegetarian for 15 years, so it's a bit odd that I am adding this... But the place for hot dogs (and they are cheap) is Gray's Papaya. I think they are all the same, but the one I know from walking by and going with to with friends who were hankering for a few hot dogs at 5 a.m. is on Sixth Ave. & 8th Street. There is also one at Broadway and 72nd on the Upper West Side, right by the subway stop for the 2/3 trains.

    Ah, I'm better than that. Should have recognized it.

    GB, there's at least one extensive thread here with recommendations from locals and NYC veterans. That would be a good start.

    I dug up a couple of the old threads for you.


    I can't really comment on your food choices, though New York Magazine picked pizza and hot dogs in its latest cheap eats review, and apparently the top pastrami is in Brooklyn.

    C'mon, man. Dude's coming to NYC. The only place to get a dog is from the dirty water stands.

    Mmmmmmmmm Sabrett.

    It's probably not the best, but the only place I get pizza (aside from Grimaldi's) when I'm in NYC is at Sutton Pizza on 1st between 62nd and 63rd.
