This is NOT how to eat in NYC:
Magnolia's is an overpriced P.O.S. tourist trap, and does NOT have good cupcakes; it actually tastes like a home&careers 101 student made crap with a shtload of frosting. The only reason why they are so popular is because they limit the amount of people to be let inside that small fart room of a bakery, and because it was mentioned in Sex in the City. DO NOT pay $2.75 or whatever the fck it is for these cupcakes that are literally the size of my balls.
I think Papaya Dog is better than Gray's Papaya because Papaya Dog is snappier.
Beard Papa lost its quality tremendously since it first opened by Astor Pl. I don't even know what the fck it is; it sells creampuffs, eclairs, SUSHI, and now frozen yogurt?
WTF. The creampuffs aren't warm anymore, the creme is not cold and sometimes is chunky, and their frozen-yogurt is the worst and most expensive I've had in the city.
Brooklyn has the best pizzas
If you want quality NYC foods, you have to check out the gems such as these:
1. Babo - Italian
2. Artisanal- French / Cheese aficionados
3. Peter Luger Steakhouse
4. Blue Hill
5. Otto Pizzeria
6. Corner Bistro - burger and home brewed beer
7. 99 Miles to Philly - Philly Cheesesteaks
Obviously these aren't the only awesome ones
