B&H Dairy is the kind of place you go if you want to feel like a New Yorker. Not a lived-here-for-three-years New Yorker, but a guy reading a newspaper in a diner in an ’80s cop movie New Yorker. Sit at the one long counter and order from the guy who makes your food. The breakfast and lunch menus are extensive, but you can’t go wrong with one of the soups or giant sandwiches. Feel free to bring your own newspaper and tattered hat.
