From oysters to push-pops, consider this your food summer bucket list of 2016.

Some of these look fantastic! Personally, my favorite summer meal is the The Bearded Piggly Wiggly Sandwich at Uncle Jack's Steakhouse. It is Crispy Kurobuta pork belly with apple-cucumber slaw, red watercress, grain mustard aioli, toasted ciabatta bread, served with malt vinegar fries!!! YUM! My favorite sandwich in NYC, by far. The whole meal just melts in your mouth. I'm also a big fan of the new "guys night" drink samples every Wednesday at the bar), and my girlfriend loves the new ladies night (free drinks every Thursday at the bar), at Uncle Jack's Steakhouse. It's a must-try!

This is actually my car wash donut with a hint of lavender ice cream sandwich. Vanilla ice cream, and it was so delicious, just enough ice cream.
