FEATURES
Cheap Eats
BY ROB PATRONITE and ROBIN RAISFELD
There's no shortage of truly excellent food in New York -- and no shortage of truly mind-blowing prices, either. Luckily, these two statements don't necessarily describe the same restaurants. Our Underground Gourmet experts have forked and knifed their way all over town, bringing back reports of smashing Swedish meatballs, luscious lobster rolls, crackling fried chicken, delicate dim sum, succulent hand-stuffed shawarma, and more -- all at prices so modest they'd give Alain Ducasse heart palpitations.

Not Your Average Joe
BY MARK ADAMS
Onetime SNL superstar Joe Piscopo suffered a comedian's worst nightmare -- he became a punch line. But now he's back, and this time he's plotting to turn Newark, New Jersey -- Punch Line City, USA -- into the Hollywood of the East.

Oh, What a Feeling
BY AMY LAROCCA
Mama Gena has a simple diagnosis for what ails New York women: They're so busy being successful, they've forgotten about pleasure -- their own, that is. How to receive it from a man, or how to provide it for themselves. In short, they're not adequately "pussified." And the classes she leads at her School of Womanly Arts, which range from the practical ("Training Your Man") to the philosophical ("Trust Your Pussy") -- are attracting a surprising cross-section of city sophisticates.

Boy Meets Girl
BY MARK HOLGATE
When men's-fashion design duo Richard Edwards crossed the final frontier into womenswear, they simply took the hip, urban fundamentals to which they'd always adhered and made them, well, a bit more feminine. The results? A subtle, instantly successful collection likely to claim prime space in many a New York closet.
