New York offers a good variety of fast food and it is easy to find a hot dog. Invented about 100 years ago, it has long since changed its name to the hot dog, and out of hundreds of hot dog stands, probably the most famous is on Brooklyn’s Coney Island, where it was invented.
Jewish fast foods that most people enjoy are bagels and blintzes. Bagels are rings of hard bread, often toasted. Blintzes are crepes filled with fruit and cheese and served with sour cream. Pizza New York style is identified by its wide, thin, and foldable slices. The traditional toppings are tomato sauce and mozzarella. The slices are often eaten folded in half, as its size and flexibility sometimes makes it unwieldy to eat flat. The most noticeable difference between New York-style and other American pizzas is its thin hand-tossed crust, made from a high-gluten bread flour.
The first pizzeria in the United States was opened in 1905 by Gennaro Lombardi, at Lombardi’s in Little Italy, Manhattan.
The city is also home to many of the finest haute cuisine restaurants in the United States. For those restaurants you are suggested to reserve a table several days before. Check the menu to see if a service charge is imposed. Waiters and waitresses should get 15 per cent minimum.
