Everyone has some food that speaks to them, conveying security, exultation and fullness of spirit (pun definitely intended). Many of New York City’s giants of gastronomy actually yearn for relatively simple fare when they escape their kitchens and eat out. What is your comfort food?

Could you eat it every day, or would that make it less special?
