New York City is home to many weird things. The C Train; $5 coffees (and people buy them! Every morning!); that cowboy in Times Square who plays the guitar in his underwear all day, every day. So, you know, the weird factor was bound to affect NYC restaurants, too. If you've been to any of the following five unusual eateries, hats off to you for your adventurous spirit. Unfortunately, some of them are just one-note, the menu or decor is gimmicky, and overall, they're just plain odd. Somehow, though, these spots are still alive and kicking in the most competitive restaurant scene in the world. Again: puzzling.
Check out five weird NYC restaurants we double-dare you to try!
