LOIS LEVINE

City to Dine For Ever since my first plate of buttery kasha varnishkes (buckwheat groats and bow tie pasta) from my Rumanian-born Grandma Rose’s Lower East Side kitchen, I have been an unapologetic foodie. So, for me, picking a place to eat in NYC is akin to asking for a good bottle of wine at Bouley: The choices are dizzying. Nevertheless, I decided to have fun with a day of culinary adventuring and so stopped in at three personal favorites. Feel free to join me! For my full New York City itinerary, go to wheretraveler.com.

>> AFTERNOON

>> EVENING

Years ago, when I worked for Rolling Stone magazine, I remember supping at midnight at the Empire Diner with members of a famous 1980s rock band. Those were the days! Today, the recently reopened resto satiated me with an early snack of fluffy buttermilk pancakes.

The sliders at Brasserie, a sleek French restaurant in the Seagram Building, are sinful—plump, juicy pillows of Angus beef, buoyed by melted Gruyère cheese, bacon and housemade pickles, wedged between a savory pastry—but sometimes a girl’s just gotta be bad.

One of the city’s most opulent dining rooms, Petrossian is also the place to go if it’s caviar you are craving with your champagne. An evening of West Coast sturgeon with Petrossian caviar beurre blanc, a bottle of chilled Veuve Clicquot brut, and the world is your oyster.

New York

ADE IN: A long shot of a bustling New York City deli. The camera pans across tables of people chomping away, coming to rest on a man and woman facing each other. In between bites of sandwiches and slaw, they begin to argue about sex, until—to prove her point about females “faking it”— the woman simulates stages of increasingly intense passion. The man blushes. Other diners gape. And as our heroine’s gasps subside, another female patron informs the waiter, “I’ll have what she’s having.” This is, of course, the famous scene from When Harry Met Sally (1989). And it made famous the restaurant in which it was set and shot: Katz’s Delicatessen (205 E. Houston St., at Ludlow St., 212.254.2246), an actual (since 1888) Lower East Side purveyor of pastrami and other Jewish culinary classics. But

Opened in 1927, the two-story eatery won theater folk’s loyalty by being one of the first to serve food into the wee hours. In The Country Girl (1954), it’s where play director William Holden takes his insecure star (Bing Crosby) and star’s hostile wife (Grace Kelly) to dinner after a late-running rehearsal; over outsize menus, Kelly and Holden square off as the restaurant’s famed celebrity caricature portraits smirk down from the walls. Those caricatures, Sardi’s most recognizable feature, are another symbol of show-business success. In The King of Comedy (1982), a wannabe comic

Katz’s is only one of many New York restaurants that have been featured in films, embellishing the dining experience with a touch of movie glamour. Using an actual, often recognizable New York venue adds authenticity to a movie trying to depict a particular Manhattan milieu. Just about any fi lm dealing with the theater almost inevitably has a scene set in Sardi’s (234 W. 44th St., btw Seventh &

And when Kermit the Frog needs to generate some buzz about his new Broadway show in The Muppets Take Manhattan (1984), where does he go? Sardi’s, of course. If Sardi’s instantly connotes the entertainment industry, ‘21’ (21 W. 52nd St., btw Fifth & Sixth aves., 212.582.7200) embodies a more general world of w w w.wh ere trave ler.c om

Park, the historic restaurant is a perfect emblem of an urban oasis—and sometimes of an urban mentality as well. Case in point: a satiric scene from Ghostbusters (1984), in which Rick Moranis, fleeing a (literally) demonic hellhound, frantically pounds for help on the windows of the glassed-in dining room—only to be ignored by the self-absorbed diners within. (To be fair, NYC was seen as a more dangerous place back in the 1980s). Tavern plays a more prominent—and, happily, warmer— role in Mr. Popper’s Penguins (2011), whose plot revolves around the efforts of a workaholic real estate magnate (Jim venue for the rehearsal dinner for Carrie and Mr. Big.

Pick a Pickle

COMEDY, HANNIBAL BURESS-STYLE

From the Lower East Side to hipster Brooklyn, a crisp New York pickle is a lippuckering taste sensation.

Hannibal Buress (Comedy Central’s Broad City, y The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon) appears at Town Hall Nov. 7 as part of the 2014 New York Comedy Festival. We recently asked the Chicago native about working and living in NYC.

OLD SCHOOL Once, there were scores of pickle vendors on Essex St. on Manhattan’s Lower East Side. Today, The Pickle Guys is the last man standing, still transforming cucumbers into kosher pickles—sour, half-sour, new and hot—in the Eastern European way: barrelcured in saltwater

brine with garlic and spices. 49 Essex St., btw Hester & Grand sts., 212.656.9739 NEW WAVE Brooklyn Brine’s founder Shamus Jones gets around on a skateboard, has sleeve tattoos and isn’t Jewish.

is the place to be. It’s also an easy city to navigate, and it’s a late-night city. On top of that, it‘s always bustling.

Q: You are originally from Chicago. How do you like living in New York City? Chicago is more spread out and more residential. There are a few areas that are always hustling, and it’s way cheaper to live in Chicago and easier to buy property. But I moved here for work. There are so many comedy clubs, so many different entertainment mediums where you can watch and learn. If you really want to get out there and work out material, New York City

Q: Do you have any favorite places around town? Well, I live in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, and I love the neighborhood. It’s fun, and it’s a great place to walk around, even without having a plan. There is a good energy here. There are also great restaurants: My favorite is Dokebi, on Grand St. They have a good bibimbap: It‘s my regular spot, if I’m going out for lunch. Q: Anything special about a NYC comedy club crowd? It can be half Norweigan, or all Latino, or all black, or a mix of everyone. That’s the great thing about the New York City crowd. It always varies, depending on where you are performing.—L.L.

ROOM WITH A VIEW Though not built up with towering skyscrapers, Flushing actually has one of the best views o f the city at the Queens Museum (Flushing Meadows Corona Park, 718.592.9700) , home to the Panorama of the Cit y of New York. The mesmerizing, 10,000-square-foot structure maps every street, park and building constructed in the five boroughs by 1992, the year of its most recent update. Local kids love trying to find their homes, while visitors gain perspective on just how dense the Big Apple really is. Tip: Bring a laser pointer to help indicate places of interest. JAZZY DIGS Harlem hosted the jazz movement during the 1920s, but Queens also had a hand in the development o f the genre after Louis Armstrong moved to a modest house just outside Flushing in 1943. Jazz lovers can step inside the pre served home and listen to homemade recordings, see his instruments and learn more about the man behind the trumpet at the Louis Armstrong House Museum (34-56 107t h St., btw 34th & 37th aves. , Corona, 718.478.8274).

WRITTEN BY WILLIAM FRIER SON IV; EDITED BY FRAN CIS LEWIS

Sometimes it’s best to call a spade a spade. But think twice before you call a tree a tree, at least when contemplating German-born Robert Voit’s photo series New Trees, on view at ClampArt thru Nov. 15. He crisscrossed the globe, from Portugal (left, “Estoril, São Pedro, Portugal”) to South Korea, capturing cellphone towers that are coyly (and sometimes not so coyly) disguised as trees. Why do they exist? Usually to conform to local aesthetic codes or avoid vandalism. The verdict is out on whether life imitates art or vice versa, but one thing’s undeniable: These towers imitate trees. ClampArt, 521-531 W. 25th St., btw 10th & 11th aves., 646.230.0020

Maps Getting Around New York by Bus and Subway MTA New York City Transit subways connect four of the city’s five boroughs. Blue and white buses run in all five boroughs. Subways run 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Bus or subway questions? Check out www.mta.info or call 718.330.1234. ABOUT SUBWAYS NYC Transit’s subway system operates 24 lines designated by either a route number or letter. Serving 468 stations along 660 miles of track, approximately 6,400 air-conditioned subway cars will take you to almost anywhere in the city faster than a taxi and at a fraction of the cost. Subways run every 2-to-5 minutes during rush hours, 10-to-15 minutes during the day and about every 20 minutes between midnight and 5 a.m. Signs above the platform edge tell you which trains stop there and the direction of travel. Signs on the front of the train identify the route. Subway maps are hung at stations and in every subway car. Subway station entrances display the routes that stop there; some entrances only provide service in one direction (for example, uptown only or downtown only), so be sure you check before you pay. Station booth agents can answer questions and sell MetroCard, NYC Transit’s electronic farecard. Subway stations also have MetroCard vending machines. They accept credit/debit cards or cash. ABOUT BUSES Approximately 5,900 air-conditioned buses provide reliable service on over 300 routes to almost anywhere in the city. Bus stops are located about every two blocks on street corners and are marked by a sign pole with a bus emblem and route number. While some buses run 24 hours a day, most operate between 5 a.m. and 2 a.m. Bus schedules and route maps are posted on most bus stops. All buses are equipped with wheelchair accessible lifts. Check the sign on the front of the bus. If you’re not sure it’s the bus you want, ask the bus operator. ABOUT FARES No matter how far you ride, the base subway and local bus fare is $2.50 per ride, payable by MetroCard. Buses also accept exact change (but no dollar bills or pennies). METROCARD You can buy MetroCards at any subway station booth. MetroCards are also available at MetroCard vending machines, which are found in many subway stations and at neighborhood stores. Look for the MetroCard sign in store windows or visit www .mta.info/metrocard for a store near you. There are two kinds of MetroCards: 1) Unlimited Ride—$30 for seven consecutive days and $112 for 30 consecutive days. 2) Pay-Per-Ride—The bonus for purchasing multiple rides is 5 percent.

My New York MY PERFECT DAY

Ben Lawson and Kristen Johnston of The Exes

Kristen Johnston [Actress] Comedic actress Kristen Johnston is best known for her two-time Emmy Award-winning role as Sally Solomon in the TV series 3rd Rock From the Sun (1996-2001). She currently stars on the TV Land show, The Exes, about a group of friends who navigate the perilous NYC landscape of dating after divorce.

Afternoon: Doggie Time In the afternoon, I ’d take Pinky to the dog run in Washington Square, the best spot for people-watching in the city. Plus, I went to New York University, and Washington Square was basically our quad.

What made you originally want to get involved with “The Exes”? I’ve read a lot of sitcom scripts, but this show was actually really funny. Plus, I relished the idea of playing a career woman whose life doesn’t revolve around kids and PTA jokes. If you had to recommend some NYC “must-sees” to a visitor that are not the obvious ones, what would they be? Without question, Hudson River Park. Ratty old piers and miles of riverfront have been turned into grassy parks, playgrounds, bike and running paths. I also love the High Line. They’ve transformed an abandoned aboveground freight rail into a stunning walkway and park. It’s also in the Meatpacking District, full of phenomenal restaurants & high-end stores.

What do you love about the city? Oh, God. That’s so hard! The West Village, where I live. My friends. The fact that you can get any food delivered to your apartment. That you are never really alone. The theater (Broadway, but especially Off-Broadway). Bleecker St. for its great little nail salons, funky and high-end shops, and Magnolia Bakery. But far and away,

The High Line

my favorite thing about New York City is the people. I know New Yorkers have this reputation for rudeness, but I’ve found the opposite to be true. We’re just very blunt, that’s all!

Morning: Fabulous Eggs On a typical fall weekend, I’d meet a friend for breakfast at Elephant & Castle, on Greenwich Ave. It’s the perfect fall restaurant, woodpaneled, dark and cozy. They make delicious egg dishes (I’m partial to the eggs Benedict), but by far my favorite thing on the menu is the Boston Indian pudding. I don’t know what the hell it’s made out of, but I’m in love with it.
