New Yorkers aren’t always right about everything.

New Yorkers are a rare and proud breed. They are loyal to everything there is about their city – especially its food scene. And they’ll argue that every meal you’ll eat in New York will be the best meal in your life.

It’s a fact that New York has the best pizza in the States (maybe even the world), and there is no way New Yorkers would get a bagel anywhere outside of the city. Because why even bother? It’s not going to be good.

But New Yorkers’ pride can often lead them to believe things about food here in New York (and the food scene around the country) that might not be true.

New York City is the culinary capital of the world...

…oh wait, it is!
