The Bronx and perhaps New York City’s first European style “piazza” for outdoor dining makes…
A couple of years ago, with the charismatic charm and pull of our culinary ambassador, Baron Ambrosia, Anthony Bourdain came to The Bronx and filmed an episode with some of our off the beaten path eateries.
Tonight, on yet another tour by the way Baron, the Travel Channel’s Bizarre Foods hosted by the world famous Andrew Zimmern premiers showcasing more of the delectable delights our borough has to offer.
The Bronx being one of the most ethnically diverse places in New York City means that it’s a recipe for great culinary delights.

It’s a time honored tradition in New York City: The Battle of the Best Pizzas in Town which every publication puts out at least once a year. Gothamist just put out the 24 best pizza places in NYC and ONLY 2 Bronx shops made the cut? They also had the audacity to say anyone who disagrees with this list is wrong. Clearly they haven’t traveled far and wide and did their homework like Chris Crowley did earlier this year.
This Friday, May 29th, Archie’s Tap & Table will open, where once Sugar & Spice Bake Shop and Eatery once stood on City Island, serving up comfort food with “an American twist” not to mention local Bronx beers.

Chris Crowley always gives us great write-ups on many of our favorite Bronx eateries but in this feature we woke up to, he enters the dangerous realm of Pizza. Favorites like Patricia’s, Louie & Ernie’s, & Emilio’s came up but Pugsley’s didn’t make it. Uh oh.
Bronxites love their pizza. We love our favorite pizzerias so much that we will defend them to the point that arguments will break out over which is the best. Which is your favorite?
