Straight for the marrow
Skip the pretentious, overpriced appetizer-sized imposters in the foodie world and dive right into the main course with Tom Miale and Mike MIranti of Notafoodie. Their chemistry and knowledge of all-things-food is deep like a Chicago Deep Dish but authentic and relatable like a proper NY slice. I recommend Episode 13 (Talking Korean Food with @jeaniuseats) and Episode 8 (The NaF Guide to NYC - Classic Restaurants You Must Try) for first-timers.
Pass the Gabagool
