The 10 Best, 'Secret' Off-The-Menu Dishes in New York

View as Map

When dining out, ordering from the same menu given to every customer can become so humdrum and pedestrian. If you want to feel like an insider and impress your friends, take a look at these off menu items secretly offered at some of New York's top restaurants. Some are old classics that can be revived for the right person, some are so new they aren't on the regular menus yet, and some are just unholy creations that need to be kept secret from most sane customers (please see the Luther Burger). Check them out ahead.

Readers, we know you know of more. Do share with the group in the comments.
