When you walk through the rice grain–shaped entrance at Rice to Riches, amusing signs encourage you to consume one thing, and one thing only: rice pudding. Hungry-Girl.com founder Lisa Lillien called the eatery's sole offering "the most delicious rice pudding on this planet" during an episode of Food Network's The Best Thing I Ever Ate. Though she extolled the virtues of her favorite flavor— Fluent in French Toast—don't take her word for it. Try the more than 20 flavors, each of which bears a whimsical namessuch as Hazelnut Chocolate Bear Hug and Almond Shmolmond. All of the flavors can be enhanced with toppings such as house-made whipped cream or oatmeal-coconut crumble. You can indulge in pudding in sizes such as Epic, Moby, or Sumo, and even ship your favorite flavor across the country to share with a lucky loved one.

Surrounded by exposed-brick walls, diners seated at intimate tables and a wraparound bench peruse Torrisi Italian Specialties' tasting menu, which New York Magazine named the city’s best in 2012. Chefs Rich Torrisi and Mario Carbone develop a new lineup for this menu each week, which means every meal at the restaurant is surprising and new, like a word someone just made up and started shouting. Although Torrisi and Carbone have toyed with several iterations of their restaurant’s current offerings—ultra-inventive tastings, a simple sandwich menu for lunch—Bloomberg’s Ryan Sutton says they’ve found their sweet spot. According to him, the two “have transformed this tiny Nolita restaurant from a casual spot into one of our city’s great restaurants, a gustatory love letter to New York’s ethnic neighborhoods, notably Chinatown, the Lower East Side, and Little Italy.”
