Boogie down bronx

i may be bolder than usual and hork up to the new york botanical gardens and maybe
the cloisters this upcoming trip.

any good spots for lunch, please? any cuisine, informal, not expensive, just a tasty spot for lunch
on “bronx day.”

many thanks.

Bono Trattoria is at 151st and Broadway which is on the way up to the Cloisters. Good Neapolitan pizza, strozzapretti all norcina can be perfect when it’s cooked right. Check it out.

PUERTO RICAN joints!!! can’t get that in LA

sadly, my bronx experience was limited to a wonderful morning in ft tryon park and the cloisters. no food.
i will report on nyc experiences in another thread in a few days.

thanks anyway to everyone for the help.
