16. Best Streetside Bargain Lunch
Gray’s Papaya Recession Special or the barbecued pork banh mi sandwich at Paris Sandwich or the ribs over rice at Big Wong.

19. Best Bargain Italian Food
Celeste on the Upper West Side, Bianca in the Village, Fiore in Williamsburg. Chef-owner Giancarlo Quaddalti provides value like no other great Italian cook in New York.

20. Best Barbecue
Barbecue is one of those things where each place in New York only does one or two things really well. Daisy May’s whole roast suckling pig has to be ordered in advance, but the delicious short ribs are available every day. The Flintstonian beef ribs at Blue Smoke are a source of much gnawable pleasure, and the moist brisket at Hill Country is indeed a beautiful thing.
Daisy May’s: whole roast suckling pig (order in advance), short ribs
Blue Smoke: Flintstonian beef ribs
Hill Country: brisket
