City Search Best of New York

City Search has come out with its Best of New York guide. Taking a glance at the restaurant section, I am surprised that DiFara's didn't even make the top 10 in the pizza category and that Fornino came in first. Brooklyn pizzerias make up 4 of the top 10. (Side note: I used to love Sal & Carmine's when I lived on the Upper West Side.)

The Best Outter Borough restaurant honors goes to Lil' Bistro 33 in Queens, while the editorial winner was Applewood. Brooklyn dominates the category taking home 7 of the top 9. Applewood, Stone Park Cafe and the Grocery are expected winners while Dressler and Fanny perhaps less so.

Brooklyn also makes a respectable showing in the Best Breakfast category with Egg being the editorial winner and Tom's Restaurant and Blue Sky Bakery comprising 2 of the top 10.

I'm glad to see Cafe Steinhof came in second in the Cheap Eats category. Must be the 5-buck goulasch on Monday nights. And I never realized how romantic Brooklyn is with St. Helen, Locanda Vini & Olii and Crave making up 3 of the top 10 in the Best Date cateogory.

Other important categories where Brooklyn spots won: Best Hamburger, Best Dessert, Best Italian Food, Best French Food and Best Late Night.

For more of the winners, here's the full list.

Nice to see Savoia make the list. They do have great pizza and the rest of their menu isn't bad either. Frankie's 457 gets all the neighborhood hype, but Savoia hold its own.
