What would "Bowery style" food be? Half-eaten,cold and covered in pigeon poo?

exactly! some potential marketing copy:

"What makes our Bowery-style pizza so special? Each of our artisanally crafted slices has been aged to perfection, after a rigorous process of spending the night face-side-down on the sidewalk of the Bowery itself.

This attention to detail means you'll taste a melange of hyperlocal flavors--urine and vomit, both 30 proof, infused with alcohols ranging from the gritty (Thunderbird) to the luxurious (Armand de Brignac). That's the Bowery Style."

That's what we used to call a puddle of vomit deposited on the sidewalk outside CB's, back in the late Seventies. I need to sue this bum for copyright infringement.
