Later this year, we'll pen our Best of New York issue, our annual love letter to what's great in this town. When that paper hits the streets, you'll find our picks for the very best this city has to offer when it comes to dozens of cuisines, restaurants, dishes and drinks. Until then, you can get a taste of our contenders as we count down, in no particular order, our 100 favorite dishes from around the boroughs, a list of laudable eats worth tracking down right now.

No. 77: Steak and cheese pie from the Musket Room

New Zealand native chef Matt Lambert re-imagines a number of his home country's comfort food classics for the menu at his recently opened Musket Room, and the most successful of these redesigns is the steak and cheese pie. The plate is pooled with savory jus, dabbed with rich, creamy taleggio, and piled with tender, succulent chunks of steak mixed with two kinds of parsnips, the first crisp and fresh, the second tartly pickled. The dish is crowned with a wafer-thin disk made of crumbly, buttery pastry crust, best integrated into each bite.
