How to treat yourself in New York without breaking the bank?

Enjoy one of the many New York classics that have not aged at all over the years ...

Who doesn’t know the famous scene from When Harry Met Sally in which Sally buys herself a very special sandwich?  Do you want to experience the same feelings as her?  Well then, head down to the oldest delicatessen in New York, established in 1888.  Katz’s, located at 205 Houston St. East, offers a pastrami sandwich that will no doubt remind you of a certain Montreal smoked meat.  At 32 Spring St, in Little Italy, the oldest pizzeria in the United States has been serving clients since 1905. If you make you way to Lombardi’s, don’t miss out on their clam pizza. Further south, in the heart of Chinatown you’ll find the Nom Wah Tea Parlor, established in 1920 at 13 Doyers St, making it the oldest restaurant in the neighbourhood where you can enjoy dim sum. One day, we might even find the “Cronut” on this list of classics!  Since May, this improbable cross between a croissant and a donut has been attracting crowds to the Dominique Ansel Bakery at 189 Spring Street in Soho.  With that, bon appétit!
