What trip to New York could be complete without pizza, cannoli and cheesecake (not at the same time of course!). For the pizza, we discovered Mariella's. The doorman sent us there. It was a short walk from where we were staying. It's a small place and the warmth from the ovens was welcome on a cold night. The smell was divine! (Not that it mattered to us, but Oprah and her bud, Gayle, declared it the best pizza in the land.) We thought it was mighty fine pie!
I've always been a huge fan of cannoli. Not that I run into it all that often, but I never turn it down when I do! I managed to fit it into the schedule several times while we were there and was not disappointed.
And then there's the New York cheesecake. Mmmmmm. Your mouth is watering just thinking about it! Our last day in the City we went to Lindy's for brunch. (You might as well call it lunch. We missed breakfast trying to figure out alternate transportation as our flight home had been cancelled because of the snow. We ended up finally finding a rental car and driving home.) Besides the good food, it was fun to look at all the celebrity pictures on the walls. Lindy's is *the* place for cheesecake. They also have really good sandwiches. There was so much food we ended up taking the cheesecake to go. It was a welcome treat several hours later on the road. Amazing.
