March is Flour Month. Embrace this transformative ingredient with a variety of the city’s best, most flavorful dishes.
1. Crack Pie
A slice of Crack Pie ($5.25) from the East Village’s Momofuku Milk Bar contains a deadly combination of butter, heavy cream, brown sugar and corn flour. Disclaimer: contents may be addictive — they don’t call it crack for nothing.
251 E. 13th St.
2. Artichoke Pizza Slice
Though perhaps more expensive than your typical Greenwich Village pizza joint, this slice from artichoke pizza is generously topped with spinach, cream sauce, mozzarella, Romano cheese and, of course, hearty artichoke hearts ($4.50).
111 MacDougal St.
3. Midtown Melt
Vegans and non-vegans alike will drool over this flavorful sandwich from Blossom Du Jour — cajun-spiced seitan, non-dairy cheese, agave guacamole, lettuce and chipotle aioli, all stuffed between two slices of freshly baked bread ($9.25).
174 Ninth Ave.
4. Almond-Crusted French Toast
The Mudspot’s sourdough French toast ($9.95) is ideal for lazy Sunday morning brunches. This sweet meal is topped with cinnamon and almonds and drizzled with maple syrup.

The oatmeal scone, ($3.25) a staple at Amy’s Bread, is packed full of tasty dried fruit and nuts. This delicious treat is a great breakfast option.
Chelsea Market, 75 Ninth Ave.
6. Chives and Pork Dumplings
Vanessa’s Dumpling House’s succulent dumplings (10 for $2) are not only affordable but also fresh — they are made from scratch in-house. You can even buy a bag of frozen dumplings to be enjoyed at home.
220 E. 14th St.

This decadent dessert from Peels Bakery is a twist on the classic cinnamon bun — it’s slathered in sweet mascarpone cheese ($3.25).
