  • Ricobene's

    Ricobene's

    252 W 26th St
    M-Th 11AM-midnight, F Sa 11AM-1:30AM, Su 11AM-11:30PM. $4-12. With one exception the food here is uninspired, but the atmosphere is extreme Bridgeport, and it's a great place to bring kids. The exception is the Italian breaded steak sandwich, yet another neighborhood "delicacy," which it does better than anyone. There's nothing subtle about it — a big ol' breaded steak on chewy Italian bread, optionally drenched in red sauce, plus cheese, and hot or sweet giardinera. Don't order the king size unless you like to view your meal as a challenge.
