On the Sixth Day of Christmas...

Celebrating the Twelve Days of Christmas The Daily Meal-style, with a food carol about some of New York City's best dishes.
Mesa Coyoacan’s Chilaquile with Poached Eggs.

Technically, the Twelve Days of Christmas don’t start until Christmas Day, but we’re already in the spirit. To celebrate over the next six days, here’s the carol, ‘The Twelve Days of Christmas’ The Daily Meal-style, featuring some New York City dishes enjoyed over the years that we’d be willing to sing about.

Last time was the showstopper. Next, 'Six Geese a Laying.' Geese laying…eggs. Of course, great New York City egg dishes.

On the sixth day of Christmas, my waiter brought to me clockwise from top left: Mesa Coyoacan’s Chilaquile and Poached Eggs, Wildwood Barbecue's Southside Benedict, SHO Shaun Hergatt’s Slow Poached Egg., Katz’s Hot Pastrami and Scrambled Eggs, Sorella’s Pate de Fegato, and ‘inoteca & Liquori Bar's Truffle Egg Toast.



Six eggs for feasting,
Five on-ion rings!

Chicks from four birds,
Three fried French hens,
Two desserts for two,
And Felidia’s pear ravioli.
