David Olenick: Good, Bad, & Bad-But-Still-Good Meals In New York City

This group of images was inspired by 25 years of good, bad, & bad-but-still-good meals in New York City. Specifically, late-night gyros at Cinderella Falafel in the East Village, 50 cent hot dogs at the Grey’s Papaya on 8th Street, tacos & tantrums at Arriba Arriba in Hell’s Kitchen, pepperoni slices at any Ray’s Pizza (whether “Famous Original” or anonymous knock-off), hot noodle soup at the closest place I could find during a typically brutal winter, and awkwardly sharing the large order of guac & chips at Sombrero on West 48th Street near Times Square.
