Lucky for you, we’ve planned a mini-tour of some of NYC’s tastiest subway stops, dishing the low-down on where to grab a bite, enjoy a tipple, or drown your sorrows in a deluge of divey drinks (if that’s where your day is headed.) Each restaurant and bar has been carefully selected for its awesomeness, and each is no more than ten blocks from its designated subway stop.
