New York’s 5 Best Burgers? Wow! Who are they? Who right? Who’s Not? Yes, it’s not easy, and who’s to say who is the best, who’s not, and that they are thee authority and decider of who is # 1 and Who’s Not? Well, there are any number of people, magazines, newspapers, and other intitties doing articles, stories and what-not on the Best Burger or Best Burgers in town and around the country. It’s a big and popular subject.
Well, this is just ours. Not seeing that his is the definative list and list to end all. It’s just ours. And of these 5, we ourselves what put any number at the Top of The Heep, they’re all great burgers.
 
THE SKINNY On EACH
 
SCHNIPPERS
 
Schnippers is awesome. They came on the scene a couple years ago. They didn’t make all that much of a splash in the first year or year 1/2, but now? They’ve Splashed, and in quite a big way. They just opened their 3rd location in Manhattan and seems like their expansion will lead to any number across the country, alla Shake Shack. Spaeaking of Shake Shack, Schnipper’s opened their first place less than 200 feet from Shake Shacks hugely famous Flagship Burger Joint (and 1st) at Madison Park at 23rd Street and Madison Avenue.
 
Anyway, the Schnipper Burger is awesome. The Schnipper Burger is a classic straight forward burger. It’s 5 ounces, fresh beef (never frozen), cooked to perfection and seasoned perfectly. We love it, and think it taste exactlt as a burger should, with an emphasis on the tasty beef patty.
 
JG MELON
 
JG Melon is one great old institution up on 3rd Avenue at 74th Steet on New York’s Upper East Side. The Melon is a cool classic old school bar, the kind that just can’t be duplicated. Great natural vibe, and un-contived. And guess what? they’ve got one of New York top burgers, if not thee # 1 tops .. Some say, they are the best. Their Burger, and we wouldn’t give them a fight on that. We love em too, and almost picked them for the # 1 spot on our list. What do you think.
 
SHAKE SHACK
 
A Great Burger! Some say the Best. We did too for some time, but we feeel that Schnipper’s has edged them out. Though we wouldn’t gie anyone a hard time if they Shake Shack is # 1 … They’re Buger is Classic, just the right size, seasoned and cooked to beautiful tasty perfection. We just Love Em.
 
 
PETER LUGER
 
The Luger Burger is awesome. It’s quite tasty, and makes our top 5 list for it’s tastieness and the fact that you can go into this Mecca of Steakdom and get a Burger for just 12 Bucks .. But you probably won’t. You gonna want some cheese on that $1.50 and the Bacon ($4.25) is a “Must Have” at Lugers. If you go for Fries (Only $1.95), your burgers gonna cost you about $19.00
But hey, “It Peter Luger” and that’s a bargain. 
You can only get The Luger Burger at Lunch, and we just love hopping over the Williamsburg Bridge every 2 or 3 months to get one. You will too.
 
MINETTA TAVERN
 
You can’t beat the ambiance and History of Minetta Tavern .. This Historical Old Greenwich Village Haunt is cool as can be. And you’ll feel you are too once and if you secure a seat inside. The master of the restaurant business in New York, Keith McNally rescued this great old joint, spruced it up just a bit, retaining its wonderful orignal decor, placed a couple great chefs at the helm and opened her up to rave reviews. The menu is French Bistro Steak House, with big juicy Steaks, Bistro Classics, and a pair of New York’s Hottest and most loved burgers; The Famed Black Label Burger ($24.00) and The Minetta Burger ($16.00) .. The Black Label Burger is by far the most famous of the two, made with the Black Label Blend of Dry Aged Beef from famed New York Butcher Pat La Freida .. Dry Aged Beef may be great for Steaks, such as the ones so famous at Peter Luger and Minetta Tavern, but we feel that this beef doesn’t translate so well to Burgers … We prefer the Minetta Burger. How bout you?

BOOKS by BEST SELLING ITALIAN AMERICAN COOKBOOK AUTHOR
Daniel Bellino Zwicke
 
 
SUNDAY SAUCE has been a BEST SELLER in ITALIAN COOKBOOKS and PAST COOKBOOKS ever since it hit the shelves bacck in 2013. The book was The # 1 BEST SELLER – ITALIAN COOKBOOKS for the Most Amount of Time for the two years of 2013 – 2104 , beating out such notable Italian Cookbook Authors as Lidia Bastianch , Giada DeLaurentis, Marcella Hazan, and Mario Batali.
 
The main theme of Sunday Sauce is center around the greatest dish in all of Italian-Amaerica. The dish has been a Sunday ritual of millions of Italian immigrant families in America for more than 100 years. There are various versions of the dish that is made with a few different meats slowly simmering in a sauce of tomatoes seasoned with garlic and onions and the meats themselves which may include Sweet Italian Sausages, Meatballs, Braciole, Pork Neck, and Pork Spare Ribs of which Daniel loves to put in his.
 
There are recipes for Sunday Sauce aka Gravy from the movies Goodfellas and Francis Ford Coppola and Mario Puzo ‘s Godfather, where we see director Martin Scorsese ‘s father Charles Scorsese making Gravy (Sauce) in Prison with Ray Liotta, Frank Pelligrino Senior, and Mob Boss “Big Paulie Vario” played by Paul Sorvino.
On to The Godfather where we have the famous scene with Clemenza (Richard Castellano) showing Michael Corleone ( Al Pacino ) how to make Sauce (Gravy) for 20 Guys someday. Corleone Capo Pete Clemenza tells Michael you fry some onions and garlic in Olive Oil, put in Tomatoes, salt & pepper, a little wine, “you shove in your Meatballs and your Sausage. And that’s my trick.”
 
Sonny Corleone (James Caan) tells Clemenza, “Knock it Off. I got important things to do here.” The scene is part of Italian-American and movie folklore and people just love it. The reccipes are in Sunday Sauce, along with Dolly Sinatra ‘s Spaghetti & Meatballs, and Joe DiMaggio ‘s mothers Sunday Gravy as well.
 
Sunday Sauce is filled with wonderful stories of Italian-America, the ritual of the Sunday Gravy, of Pasta Nights, Meatball Parms, and most of all, friends and families sharing a meal together at the table, with good times, love and happiness. And in this day and age of families not talking to each other and getting together at the dinner table because the children can’t get off their phones or stop playing video games for hours on end, the message of Sunday Sauce bring people together for nice Italian meal at the table, the message is more important than ever, and Daniel teaches and inspires just how to do it yourself. To have a happy meaningful meal at the table with ones loved ones, its so simple and wonderful to do. Daniel will show you how. It’s all in Sunday Sauce – When Italian-Americans Cook a Best Selling Italian Cookbook by New York Italian-American Author Daniel Bellino Zwicke.
 
 
The RAGU BOLOGNESE COOKBOOK
 
As Daniel States in his book description, for years he kept his Famous Recipe for Ragu Bolognese a Secret. He has loved cooking Italian Food for many years, and is often asked what is his favorite thing to cook? The answer Meat Ragu and especially Bolognese Sauce aka Ragu Bolognese, of which The Journal of Italian Food Wine & Travel once wrote that Daniel’s was the Best in the country, and some say the World. Daniel says he especially loves to make his Bolognese Sauce because it is just so dam tasty, it’s economical, and it brings people together, the same as Daniel’s message in Sunday Sauce and all his wonderful Italian Cookbooks, is making wonderful Italian Food and bringing people together, sharing a meal at the table. Enjoying the food and Italian Wine, each others company, conversation, music by Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin, and good times that enrich your lives. Daniel does it quite well, and the Ragu Bolognese Cookbook is a Winner. And oh yes, we almost forgot. As Daniel states in the cookbook, he thought long and hard about publishing his famous recipe for Ragu Bolognese, but he did. He says, that if he charged the price of the book for the Bolognese Sauce Recipe  alone it would be a steal and more than worth it. But he didn’t although he could have as there are many avenues these days to do so, simply selling one great recipe on its own. But know Daniel didn’t do that. No he gives you his World Famous Recipe for Ragu Bolognese, and he gives you much more. 
 
Besides Daniel’s Secret Bolognese Sauce there are recipes for John’s Secret Chicken Cactiatore, Lasagna Bolognese, Spaghetti Meatballs, Marinara Sauce, and much more. Again, this book is a winner, and we just love it, especially Danny’s Bolognese.

Where to Eat in POSITANO & NAPLES

BucaDIBACCO.jpg

At BUCA di BACCO

Positano , Italy

Yes a Wonderful Ristorante Amazing View Great Food Excellent Service … This Hotel and Restaurant is a mainstay of the hugely popular town of Positano on the Amalfi Coast of Italy. Everything about the place is First Class, the hotel of course , the restaurant and a friendly professional staff of waiter, BBs, host, Chef, cooks, and all who work at this establishment. I’ve eaten here numerous times since 1985, and it’s always been a great experience including my latest trip this past May with my cousin Tony. We went for lunch, this was my cousin Tony’s first time, and he loved as I always have. I think I created a Monster when my cousin Tony said let’s get a bottle of Champagne and a suggested we might get a good quality Italian Sparkling Wine. A few days before we were at Lo Smeraldino Ristorante right on the water in Amalfi. I ordered the Ferrari “Perle” Brut 2007. It was wonderful and Tony was hooked, he loved it, and wanted to get it at almost every restaurant we went to for the rest of the trip. Now back to Buco di Bacco. Tony scanned the Wine List at Buco, he found the Ferrari “Perle” and ordered another bottle (Vintage 2010). We started drinking it and as with the 5 or so bottles of this wine we had on te trip, it was excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed. Now when it came to ordering, for Antipasto we got an order of Melanzane Parmigiano (Eggplant Parm) and some grilled vegetables. Now, though we both love eating Seafood when down on the Amalfi Coast, when we saw Meatballs (Polpette) on the menu, we both ordered some. I ordered a plate of Spaghetti Meatballs while Tony ordered just Meatballs minus any pasta.

The BAR at BUCO Di BACCO

The service as usual was excellent, it was a absolutely gorgeous day in Positano and we were both a couple of Happy Campers outside on the lower Terrazzo of Buca Di Bacco. We both commented on how relaxing and peaceful it felt sitting there on the deck and we both sat back and thorughly enjoyed the whole experience and good fortune to having lunch there at such a nice restaurant in the beautiful town of Positano n the Amalfi Coast in Italy. Yes, we knew we were lucky and we were most certainly greatful to be sharing such a memorable meal together, two Italian-American cosuins in Italy in Positano, The Amalfi Coast. Basta !

That’s the terrazzo of Caffe Positano where all the people are stitting outside, which if you started going to Positano long ago, you may know that spot as the old BAR DeMARTINO, one of my favorite places ever in Positano, but sadly no longer there. Anyway, this is a spectacular spot to get an Apertivo, have lunch or dinner, and just enjoy the moment and the beauty before you, and just how “Lucky” you are to be in this Gorgeous Place, known as Positano. Enjoy!

at Da VINCENZO

Been Going there Since 1985

Positano

Yes, I started going to Da Vincenzo way back in 1985. Ever Since my first trip to the lovely little Seaside Town on The Amalfi Coast, that was yet to be discover by the masses all around the World. Yes, there were people who had heard about this gorgeous place, but not nearly as many as do now. Yes, Positano for the most part was still relatively un-known back then. That’s before Marisa Tomei and Robert Downey Jr. made the movie ONLY YOU that brought the town to the attention of so many more Millions of people then had ever even heard of the place before. Anyway Cei la Vie.

Now back to Rene Ricard and myself and how I discovered and went to Da Vincenzo way back in the Summer of 1985 (Bar DeMartino also). It was just a few days before my long awaited first trip to Italy, Spain, and the South of France when as I was walking down 2nd Avenue one night I ran into my friend Alma who was with the Poet RENE RICARD. We were all chatting on the street when I mentioned my trip. When I said I was going to Rome, Venice, and Positano, Rene got quite excited and told me the best places to go to in Rome, Venice and Positano. So besides all the info Rene gave me on Rome and Venice, he told me all about Positano and where to stay and where to eat which included going to Da Vincenzo where Rene told me I’d get the Best Plate of SPAGHETTI VONGOLE that Id’ ever have in my entire life.

Our first night they were about to close and stayed open for us to get a light bite and a great bottle of wine and we told them we would be back and they didn’t not disappoint. The seafood pasta was amazing and once again the staff was accommodating. I couldn’t recommend this place more. Enjoy Positano and really get to know the people because it’s a great place.

Chez Black may very well be the most popular restaurant in all of Positano. It’s been there Since 1949, and most travelers just love it. Besides having a full extensive menu of antipasti, past, Fish, Meat, and everything you’d expect to eat on the Amalfi Coast, they have a Pizza Oven and make some of the Best Pizza in town. The Pizza are Heart Shaped, and the ladies really like them, but you don’t have to be a lady to eat them. 

It’s almost impossible to miss CHEZ BLACK.  They are right down by the Center of Everything, at the main beach and just feet from the Ferry Boats Stop. Chez Black is one of the first things you’ll see as you depart from you boat ride and set foot on dry land in Positano. Enjoy!

We decided to grab some food to take back some food to enjoy on our balcony. The food was of great quality and very reasonably priced. We bought some Pasta, Panini, and Eggplant, Arancini (Rice Balls) . Everyhtng was super tasty. They make greay Sandwiches (Panini) taht a great to take along with some Fruit and Arancini for an awesome Beach Lunch. If you are staying in Positano for a while and don’t want to eat out all the time then this is a great option. They have a great wine selection if you like to do as we do and keep a bottle or two back at our room , as well asfruit and  bottled water which you always need.

La Tagliata is one of Positano’s most wonderful dining experiences. You have a wonderful lunch or dinner in a homey fun place, that serves you tasty food, with one of the most breathtaking views you’ve ever had at any restaurant, anywhere!  La Tagliata is a family run restaurant with Mamma cooking up fresh pasta and creating amazing antipasto tasty grilled meats. There’s no menu, you get what they make that day, and it’s quite a bit, so come hungry. 

La Tagliata was recommended first recommended to me by Lorenzo at my hotel Casa Albertina . Once you get there you a immediately greeted by the owner and his sons and other relatives are the servers which really provide a great family ambiance. The food was all prepared by “Mama” and wow you can really tell a lot of heart and love went into this food. By the end of the dinner my wife and I were beyond satisfied. A really great experience and amazing quality food! We Highly recommend it.

If you’re looking for some of the Best Pizza in town, as well as good local cuisine at reasonable prices, Lo Guarracino is going to be one of your best bets in Positano. The place is old school and not so slick and influenced by tourists and many of the high prices you find in Positano these days. If you have a more modest budget, Lo Guarracino is on of the best places in town to satisfy your hunger and dining needs. Ite pizzeria/ restaurant is located on the Fornillo Beach side of Positano and is a short walk from the path that starts next to the Covo Saraceni Hotel. The make great Pizzas, Calzone, antipasti, pasta, and seafood dishes. The location is good, and the views are quite nice too. This place is a favorite of many, as it is with us. Try it.

PASTICCERIA PANSA

An Absolute MUST DO in AMALFI

Two of the most popular things to do when in the town of Amalfi, are visiting its beautiful Cathedral. After you do this, the other popular thing to do in Amalfi is to go to the historical old Pasticceria Andrea Pansa in the main piazza right next to the church. An absolute must, you must have the amazing local pastry, a Sfogliatelle which is a crunchy lemon cream flavored pastry that was invented by nuns at a convent in the next town, Conca dei Marini. This pastry is the most famous one in the entire region, especially in Naples. There are a couple thousand placesin Naples, Sorrento, and all over the coast to get one, but Pansa is our favorite of all. You can get one to go, or eat it at a table either inside or outside this beautiful cafe. You might want to get an espresso or Cappuccino to go along with your scrumptious Sfogliatelle, so sit back, relax, and enjoy one of the great taste treats of your life, you’re at Andrea Pansa, one of the best pastry shops in all of Italy. Take advantage of it.

STEVE’S SIZZLING STEAKS

Carlstadtdt , New Jersey

Circa 1963

“My Dad started bringingme to STEVE’S way back in 1962”

Yes my Dad who was good friends with the owner Steve Venturini started taking me here as a young boy. He’d get me a Cheeseburger and a Mug of Rootbeer and I’d just eat it up, sitting at the bar, I was in 7th Heaven. Dad always gave me Quarters to drop in the Jukebox to play some great 60s Tunes, like locals, Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons, Sinatra, and The Shirelles, who were all artistes from Jersey. I’d also have quarters to play te shuffle board Bowling gane that used to be in the corner. When I got older I’d go there with my buddys to get a nice Sizzling Steak, which are the best in Jersey. Love this place.

Steve was a larger-than-life figure. Many came in as much for the food and drink as to see Steve who survived not one, but two airplane crashes. On February 5, 1952, Steve was on a National Airlines flight that had just taken off from Newark Airport headed for Miami where he was going to spend the week fishing. The plane crashed in Elizabeth killing 30. Although injured, Steve survived. He carried his friend, Charles Griffin, to safety and returned into the tangled remains of the airliner to help others. It took an explosion and severe head injury to stop him. Ironically, a few years later, Steve was in a prop plane headed to Cuba where he was to go fishing with Ernest Hemingway, and that plane went down. He survived yet again.
