The Writer's Life 9/23 - NYC Food

Each morning radio talk show host Mark Simone is introduced by a recorded female voice as "Mr. New York." The guy gets around. Here is a list of his favorite foods. The accompanying photos were taken by him. This is for foodies, not people who adhere to diet fads. It's a great list for both natives ignorant about such delicacies (yours truly) and anyone vacationing in the Big Apple. I included a few comments in parentheses:
