Make sure you're really hungry before descending on this notable deli. Although the menu is like any other in NYC, the pastrami on rye is the thing to have, but be prepared for what looks like an Empire State Building of delectable beef arriving at your table. Sensible option is to share one, but veggies will need to look elsewhere, I'm afraid. Leo Steiner perfected the pastrami which is still made to the same recipe. Forget those measly strips you buy in UK supermarkets! If you still have room try the cheesecake.
Locally brewed and funky-looking, Brooklyn Beer is a tasty alternative to big brand American beer and is made to several different specifications. The perfect end to a sweaty day in the Big Apple.
Most corner shops and bars.
Amazing bagels, fresh and hot. Not those doughy bricks that they sell in the carts. www.ess-a-bagel.com/ there are two queues, one for bagels only and one for bagels with stuff. Make sure you get in the right line and be know sure you know what you want before you get to the counter!

American pancakes aren't the same as English ones: they're much fluffier, and often have blueberries in them. Always served with maple syrup, and often as a side order with a fried breakfast, they're the best way to start the day.
