New York Food Quotes

“New York is a gothic Roquefort.”

Salvador Dali (1904-1989)


“One of the glories of New York is its ethnic food, and only McDonald’s and Burger King equalize us all.”

John Corry, NY Times Reporter


“But what was most remarkable, Broadway being three miles long, and the booths lining each side of it, in every booth there was a roast pig, large or small, as the centre attraction.  Six miles of roast pig!  And that in New York City alone; and roast pig in every other city, town, hamlet, and village in the Union.  What association can there be between roast pig and independence?”

Frederick Marryat, describing a Fourth of July Celebration, 1837


“The breakfast food idea made its appearance in a little third-story room on the corner of 28th Street and Third Avenue, New York City....My cooking facilities were very limited, [making it] very difficult to prepare cereals. It often occurred to me that it should be possible to purchase cereals at groceries already cooked and ready to eat, and I considered different ways in which this might be done.”

John Harvey Kellogg (1852-1943)


“Butter is the great staple article for breakfast & tea among all classes. The idea of restraining children from a liberal use of good fresh butter is exploded, & they almost live upon bread & butter in this city [New York].”

John Pintard (1759-1844) writing from New York to his daughter in New Orleans.
