Ellie Kemper's Dream Bunker Food

"In a way, I feel like it should be nutritious, so I probably would say a banana, just because I feel like there's vitamins in it, but if this is my fantasy, it would be Levain chocolate chip cookies. If I were in the bunker, those chocolate chip cookies. I mean, I might not survive that long. But the thing is, doesn’t chocolate release endorphins? I think that's why I'm leaning towards the cookies. There's nuts in those cookies, so lots of protein." — Ellie Kemper (Kimmy Schmidt)


Levain Bakery
167 W. 74th St.
New York, NY 10023

Tituss Burgess' Dream Bunker Food

"Perhaps in a bunker, my goodness. Is there a bar and preparation and freshness and all that? I'm overthinking it. Oh, gosh, that is so tough. Pizza, I guess. Maybe. Even though sushi is so right up there. I live for it. Also fried chicken. OK, pizza." — Tituss Burgess (Titus Andromedon)

Jane Krakowski's Dream Bunker Food

"I would like Bar Pitti's Pasta Pitti and to wash it down with Pinot Noir by Titus, of course! If this is a dream bunker, can we have 16 Handles in there, as well?" — Jane Krakowski (Jacqueline Voorhees)


Bar Pitti
268 Ave. of the Americas
New York, NY 10014

Carol Kane's Dream Bunker Food

"Potatoes! Any assorted potatoes cooked any way. If I had only one thing that I had to have the rest of my days, that would be it." — Carol Kane (Lillian Kaushtupper)

Ellie Kemper's Favorite NYC Restaurant

"We go to a place called Malatesta in the West Village. Delicious, delicious Italian food. Always packed. They don't take reservations, and it’s cash only. That’s my favorite place to eat. I have their spaghetti ... is it chitarra? It's just, like, spaghetti with cheese. The two best food groups. I feel like that's a very Kimmy food. I could eat that in the bunker." — Ellie Kemper (Kimmy Schmidt)

Malatesta Trattoria
649 Washington St.
New York, NY 10014

Tituss Burgess' Favorite NYC Restaurant

"My favorite place to eat is a restaurant called Rosemary’s. They grow their own produce; it's just delicious. I had their skirt steak last time I was there. Before that I had the chicken, and it was exquisite — literally cooked to perfection. It was so good." — Tituss Burgess (Titus Andromedon)


18 Greenwich Ave.
New York, NY 10011

Carol Kane's Favorite NYC Restaurant

"I don't even want to say because it's getting so crowded already, but I have a neighborhood coffee shop that I am just in love with. I am really a creature of habit, so that I would eat 99 times out of 100 at the same place. I'm not going to say the name because nobody will ever be able to get a table again, but I love it. It's just my neighborhood coffee shop." — Carol Kane (Lillian Kaushtupper)
