On Labor Day, one of the busiest, most-touristy weekends of the year, we braved the crowds and hit up some of the hottest and most wanted bites in the city.
After all, these are treats for us too. It's not like we eat at Peter Luger every night. Slurp hand-pulled noodles everyday. Or brunch at Le Parker Meridien's Norma's on Sundays.
Daniel's family eats non-stop. Fortunately, we live in one of the best food cities in the world. We could definitely find something to satiate their hunger!
