Eat this now: The Titanic at Carmine’s

Titanic Sundae

The Titanic at Carmine’s

An appropriate name for a dish that will sink to the bottom of your belly. The signature dessert at this Italian-American institution is basically a banana split on steroids: Hot brownies are smothered with scoops of ice cream, whipped cream, hot fudge, chopped fruit and cookies. It’s sloppy, but so what? Just because it’s not polished doesn’t mean your entire table won’t polish it off. Debbie Lee

Bacon and egg pizza at Naked City

Enjoy your breakfast in pie form. Chunks of pancetta are rendered until crispy, white garlic sauce adds extra flavor, and chopped lemony greens provide relief from the generous helping of rich cheese. Tear off a chunk of the thick, chewy crust and dip it into a barely set yolk. Toast with over-easy eggs just can’t compare. DL
