A BEC (see: Bacon, Egg, and Cheese) sandwich is easily NYC’s most beloved breakfast sandwich, so much so that there’s even a restaurant that specializes in them (B.E.C).

In the spring in NYC, there’s plenty of places where you can eat outside, but usually that just means sitting at a little table in front of the restaurant, with the soundtrack of cabs and cars driving by, all-the-while giving everybody who passes by a lovely view of you mid-bite. Instead, check out some of our favorite, most enjoyable places to dine outside, because a garden, string lights, or a rooftop all sound way better than curbside seating.
Food trends come and go, but everybody in New York knows pizza is king. Traditionally, people think pizza’s just for lunch, dinner, or late night, but why not have pizza at brunch?
