Here are some fun facts that we uncovered as we created January's Readers' Choice issue: Your favorite ingredient is chicken; your favorite red wine is Pinot Noir; your dream food trip would take you to New Orleans. I also discovered that I work one block from the No. 1 tourist destination in America—Times Square. In honor of that, I'm sharing F&W's local restaurant list for your next trip to New York City!
1. Osteria al Doge For many years, this is where F&W editors have written headlines over pizza Margherita. The quick service and laid-back farmhouse vibe also make it one of my pretheater favorites, particularly if I'm meeting friends with kids. osteria-doge.com
2. DB Bistro Moderne I don't even have to say "Earl Grey tea, scrambled eggs, please," when I come for breakfast—I'm here that often. For lunch, I usually choose fish but recommend the famous burger to non-regulars. dbbistro.com/nyc
