This article genre, "New York at First Bite: Oh, the Places You’ll Go", by Sam Sifton, for neophyte NYC visitors is always an enjoyable exploration of new, different and/or unknown restaurants. My favorite (for decades, now) is the Oyster Bar, in Grand Central Terminal. And yours?

"Dead of summer, but still the postman trudges forth to the mountaintop with questions for Mr. Critic, meditating on his zafu pillow. This week brought queries about a first-time trip to New York City, about where to feed a world-weary New Yorker and about where to hold a rehearsal dinner for American expatriates in from London and seeking British food. You may add your own voices to the choir at the Diner’s Journal blog. And feel free to send your questions about restaurants in New York City to firstname.lastname@example.org."
