Somebody Feed Phil – New York City Itinerary

Netflix: Season 2

Phil Rosenthal visits New York City, the iconic metropolis that is a melting pot of cultures, cuisines, and experiences. Phil tries the best that the city's 5 boroughs has to offer, including legendary pizza spots such as Di Fara's and Totonno's, as well as iconic eateries such as Peter Lugers and Nathan's. See the list of locations, restaurants, and attractions he visited on the show for the best of what to do in New York City.


1. Peter Lugers

178 Broadway, Brooklyn, NY 11211, USA


Phil is joined by Massimo Bottura (of Osteria Francescana - World's Best Restaurant in 2016 and 2018) and Nancy Silverton at what is widely regarded as one of, if not the best, steakhouse in New York. Phil makes sure to visit this iconic spot every year, where he gets the porterhouse steak in this no-frills restaurant that is focused solely on the food.

2. Totonno's

1524 Neptune Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11224, USA


Phil heads to Coney Island to a New York classic pizza spot. The founder's grandfather had worked with Lombardi - who opened up what is regarded as the 1st pizzeria in America - and this pizza spot has stayed with the family for almost 100 years. Phil pops a bottle of prosecco to celebrate.

3. Di Fara's

1424 Avenue J, Brooklyn, NY 11230, USA


The next stop on the pizza tour is perhaps the most famous of them all. Di Fara's was founded by Dimarco and Farina and is regarded as one of the best pizza spots in all of the U.S. Dimarco is still working there and pulls the pizza out of oven with his bare bands. He's been doing it for more than 50 years, and the quality of the pizza is worth the 1 to 1.5 hour wait.
