Description: Ten miles east of New York City's "original" Chinatown in Downtown Manhattan lies one of the fastest-growing Asian-American neighborhoods in the country: Flushing, Queens.Mandarin-speaking Chinese immigrants dominate the scene here on the outskirts of this outer borough, so it's become a must-hit food mecca for less-touristy tastes of Chinese-American staples. Take dumplings. Flushing has some of the city's very finest examples, and together they form a crucial part of the culinary and social fabric of "Chinese Manhattan."But you can't talk about Flushing and dumplings without talking to the Queen of Dumplings herself: Helen You. So we caught up with her at Dumpling Galaxy (her second Flushing dumpling house, opened after the runaway success of her still-fantastic Tianjin Dumpling House in Golden Mall) to get her take on what these tasty, doughy little orbs of joy mean to the neighborhood.

It's widely known as K-Town, but only a fraction of New York City's 100,000+ ethnic Koreans actually live on the stretch of Manhattan's West 32nd St named "Korea Way." Most Korean New Yorkers -- as many as two-thirds of the them, actually -- live in Queens neighborhoods like Bayside, Flushing, and College Point. Still, to residents and visitors alike, this single city block in Midtown is a shining neon beacon to Korean culture, commerce, and cuisine. Many people know this K-Town as a late-night party zone full of barbecue spots and karaoke hideaways. And it is! But this neighborhood has way more to offer than bulgogi and bad singing. In this episode of Food/Groups, Thrillist's brand-new show about the relationships between communities and the foods by which they define themselves, we're meeting up with Seoul-born food photographer Minnie Kim at Gammeeok, one of her favorite Korea Way eateries, to chow down on a facet of Korean cuisine that gets less shine: its comfort food. Check it out.

When it comes to food, New Yorkers like to claim responsibility for EVERYTHING: hot dogs, pizza, steak... whatever. Name a type of food, and someone from New York City will belligerently insist it was invented here. Like bagels, for example. Brought to New York shores by waves of Eastern European immigrants around the turn of the 20th century, bagels and bialys quickly became a culinary totem of vibrant Jewish enclaves springing up in Manhattan and Brooklyn. And while bagels weren't invented by New York's Jews (of which there are around 1.5 million today), they remain a doughy, delicious symbol of the community's unique culinary heritage. These days, Americans -- Jew, gentile, whatever -- eat just shy of $1 billion worth of that symbol every year. On this episode of Food/Groups, we meet Rayna Greenberg -- aka @OneHungryJew -- at Ess-a-Bagel, a Midtown Manhattan cult classic that’s been slinging certified-kosher bagels since the '70s, to talk about New York's long-running and totally tasty Jewish bagel-baking tradition.

Nothing says summer in New England quite like a lobster roll. And with all due respect to Connecticut’s warm & buttered approach, Maine’s version of the iconic seafood sandwich (toasted bun, cold lobster, tossed with mayo) is, well, iconic. That’s because lobster is basically synonymous with Maine. More homarus americanus are caught in the state than anywhere else in the country, and it defines the cuisine at every level, from seaside shacks to fancy restaurants. But lobster is more than just food for residents of the Pine Tree State: it’s a way of life, powering the state’s commercial fishing industry with hundreds of millions of dollars worth of lobsters landed every year. To celebrate Maine’s tastiest natural resource, we headed “down east” to pull up pots with lobstermen, eat rolls with award-winning restaurant owners, and catch up with marine biologists trying to safeguard Maine’s lobsters for generations to come.

New York has almost 130 miles of coastline, and pretty much all of it is found on Long Island, a hulking spine of glacial moraines that stretches from Brooklyn & Queens all the way east to Montauk. And from one end of this enigmatic isle to the other, a single type of shell-encased coastal inhabitant has fueled a century of industry, innovation, and culinary tradition here: Long Island oysters.  In this episode of Food/Groups, we road-tripped "out east" from our Manhattan headquarters to rendezvous with born-and-raised Long Islanders who have deep connections to the slippery shellfish. From diving for wild oysters by hand on the North Shore and sustainably raising them on ocean-cleaning reef farms in the Great South Bay, to sucking the damn things down with some local beers, generations of Long Islanders have made mollusks a delicious way of life.

New York City is hardly a remote surfing hamlet, but it is home to one: the Rockaways, a peninsula of beachfront neighborhoods where Atlantic waves meet the shockingly beautiful shores of residential Queens. Out here at the end of the A line, a cohort of year-round surfers live, work, and play. Just like the other 8.5mil people who call NYC home, they like to eat -- and well. In this episode of Food/Groups, we met up with die-hard disciples of this unlikely beach town to talk about how -- and why -- it's become such a culinary hotbed.

Since its earliest days, New York City has had a special relationship with the water, amassing great wealth as a major port, and drawing its cultural identity, in no small part, from the waves of immigrants that arrived by boat on its shores. But while most of NYC has given up its seafaring ways, the city's maritime heritage is still alive and well on City Island. With its quiet streets, plentiful boat slips, and nautical vibes, this 1.5mi strip of land in the Eastchester Bay feels more like a mid-century fishing village than an extension of the Bronx (which it is). On this episode of Food/Groups, we met up with a couple City Island "clam diggers" (i.e., "natives"; transplants are known as "mussel-suckers"), to eat its famous seafood feasts, grab a couple drinks, and discuss the importance of a robust culinary scene in New York City's most unchanged -- and improbable -- nautical neighborhood.

The words "kosher pizza" may not make sense together most places, but they do in Midwood, Brooklyn, home to one of NYC's -- and therefore, the United States' -- biggest Orthodox Jewish communities. Here, neighborhood fixture Pizza Time has been slinging kosher pies to Midwood's devout Jews for over two decades. The shop is just a block west of the nationally acclaimed, not-kosher Di Fara, but amongst Midwood's devout Jews (and gentiles who aren't game to wait for a slice), it's the go-to spot for a legitimately delicious New York pizza. On this episode of Food/Groups, we caught up with Chanie Apfelbaum, the Orthodox Jewish Brooklyn native behind kosher food blog Busy In Brooklyn, to grab a slice at Pizza Time and discuss the crucial importance of Brooklyn's kosher pizza tradition.
