NYC Foodie Link Roundup: What Makes New York City So Special & More

In this month’s NYC Foodie Link Roundup we look at what makes New York City so special including a historic dim sum parlor, a cheese shop owned by a celebrity, a new shop serving cookie dough and more. It is a great time to be a foodie in New York City!

How Nom Wah Tea Parlor Keeps Old Chinatown Old
Nom Wah Tea Parlor is the oldest dim sum parlor in Chinatown and it is a fascinating story. It changed a quiet, easy to overlook street, Doyers St into a must see foodie destination.

Tony Danza and His Cheese Store in Little Italy
Another place steeped in history is Alleva Dairy, the oldest Italian cheese shop in the United States. Add Tony Danza in the mix and this is another interesting story. Both Nom Wah and Alleva are little snapshots of a different era and both are invaluable additions to the neighborhood.
