TNT’s Mob City, which debuted in December, stars New Yorker Ed Burns. As he had his shoes shined at Mickey’s Haberdashery pop-up in the Chelsea Market, Galavante chatted with him for an exclusive New York Minute interview, on everything from his favorite clothing shops to his go-to restaurants.

Galavante: What are your favorite restaurants in New York City?

Ed Burns: My favorite places in the city: There’s a new place in Tribeca, where we live, which I love, called American Cut. It’s a new sort-of traditional steak house, but it’s got a new take on some of the standards. And, Locanda Verde, also in the neighborhood. That’s sort of our go-to. You can tell I basically never get out of Tribeca. There’s a little place called Smith & Mills, which has one of the best burgers in the city.

Galavante: What activities do you enjoy in New York that you can’t do elsewhere?

Ed Burns: You know what I’ve recently started doing? I mean, you could do it elsewhere, but not like this – striped bass fishing, in the Hudson River. You can catch some monster striped bass.

Galavante: How often do you do that?

Ed Burns: I probably go two times in spring, two times in fall. There’s nothing like catching a striped bass at the foot of the Statue of Liberty to make you rethink what New York has to offer.

Galavante: Where are your favorite places to shop in New York?

Ed Burns: I like Rag  & Bone. I’d say that’s a spot I dig. That and the J. Crew Liquor store, again, because it’s around the block from my apartment.

Galavante: How about entertainment? What’s the last great show you saw?

Ed Burns: Pearl Jam concert at the Barclays Center. That was our last night out.
