Annie Hauck-Lawson and Jonathan Deutsch on quintessential New York City dishes and more

GastropolisIn a recent interview with Serious Eats New York, Jonathan Deutsch and Annie Hauck Lawson, co-editors of Gastropolis: Food and New York City, talked about the history of New York City food and some of their favorite New York City foods and restaurants.

Not surprisingly they identified hot dogs, street pizza, bialys and bagels with cream cheese and lox or smoked salmon as the iconic foods of New York. However, they say that halal lamb over rice should also now be considered one of New York City’s quintessential dishes. In the interview Hauck-Lawson and Deutsch also recount Brooklyn’s former status as the beer brewing capitol of the United States.

Finally, for those who might be missing summer or already planning for Summer 2010, the editors describe their “dream New York meal”:

Go to the Rockaways on a warm summer early evening with family and best friends. Bring: bathing suits, towels, beach blanket, boogie or surfboards, Katz’s hot dogs, hot dog rolls, good bread and a warm cooked rice dish, big salad from lettuces and tomatoes that you grew at Floyd Bennett Community Garden at the end of Flatbush Avenue (dressed in olive oil, lemon juice and sea salt), ice cold beer, seltzer and a thermos of hot coffee.

… And a surf casting rod. Swim. Cast out in to the ocean. Cross your fingers. Catch a tuna (preferably) or a snapper. Gather drift wood. Make a fire. Clean and filet the fish, grill it, serve with all the other food and drink and enjoy.
