I ♥ NYC

In the midst of composing a stilted essay on the politics of comparing one city’s stalwart restaurant dishes to another’s, Mr. Alpenglow crumpled up his Microsoft Word document in a fit of impatience. All that remains are these fragments:

AKAMARU MODERN RAMEN
Ippudo

broth brewed out of bones
proves comfort has many forms
and infinite depths

CHICKEN SALAD SANDWICH WITH GRIBENES
Mile End Deli

some things never change
mayo covers many sins
gribenes unearth them

CHARGRILLED LAMB BURGER
The Breslin

mary had a lamb
that was ensnared in april’s
whirring meat grinder

CLAM PIZZA
Franny’s

poseidon’s nephew
clipped his fingernails one night
to bring her pleasure

LOBSTER ROLL
Pearl Oyster Bar

out with less is more
for once just luxuriate
in my pink bosom

What dishes in a distant city do you most regularly covet?
