KopitiamLower East Side, ManhattanThe Lower East Side’s coolest breakfast spot is a casual coffeehouse serving intensely flavorful Chinese-influenced Malaysian dishes known as Nyonya cuisine, loaded with anchovies, shrimp paste, and fish sauce. Tables turn quickly in the always-bustling space, so if you show up to a full house, just wait a minute for a seat to open up. Order as many plates and bowls as will fit on your table: Dishes are on the smaller side, easy to share, and guaranteed to be devoured.✵ Order: nasi lemak (coconut rice with crunchy anchovies and hard-boiled eggs), pan mee (hand-pulled noodle soup), and Malaysian-style French toast.
OkonomiWilliamsburg, BrooklynAt this tiny 12-seat spot, there is only one order: chef Yuji Haraguchi’s simple but spectacular Japanese breakfast set. That spread of miso-and-sake-kasu-slicked fish (like Spanish mackerel or tuna belly), jiggly tamago (omelet), pickles, miso soup, and rice is served on beautiful porcelain worthy of the morning light streaming through the windows.✵ Order: the breakfast set; and yes, you want to add the roe and soft-cooked egg to the rice.
Barney GreengrassUpper West Side, ManhattanThe average age of a Barney Greengrass patron probably hovers around 67. The restaurant still keeps monthly tabs for regulars (the New Yorker’s David Remnick being one of them). The gold, panoramic wallpaper looks like it could tell you about the turn of the century (the 20th one). And the recipe for the scrambled eggs with Nova lox hasn’t changed in decades. The timelessness of this uptown Jewish deli is about three-quarters of the charm. The other quarter is made up of whatever wisecracks your veteran waiter is sure to dole out.✵ Order: latkes, whitefish salad, bagels or toasted bialys, scrambled eggs with Nova and onions, and coffee.
Le CoucouSoho, ManhattanThe secret to getting a reservation at the restaurant everyone else is trying to get into? Go for breakfast. The menu at Le Coucou is just as fine-tuned and playfully French in the morning as it is at dinner, plus you can’t beat the day’s first hours of sun in one of the city’s most beautiful rooms.✵ Order: omelet, comme un clafoutis (a giant pancake), pomme Darphin (a shreddy potato cake), and a chocolate croissant.
BuvetteWest Village, ManhattanThis place is so cramped even the sidewalk outside the front door is crowded. But inside the perfectly worn room, no one cares, because the scrambled eggs coming out of Jody Williams’ kitchen are truly the softest, fluffiest, most buttery eggs in New York. Show up early (read: 7 a.m.—especially on weekends) and grab a seat at the white marble bar, right next to the towers of juice and scones, for a full view of said eggs being cooked using the steam wand on the espresso machine.✵ Order: saumon fumé (steamed eggs with smoked salmon) and an espresso.
PopinaCobble Hill, BrooklynPopina is as neighborhood-y as it gets. The modest dining room opens onto a spacious backyard, which fills up on weekend afternoons with regulars and newcomers soaking up the sun and devouring glorious pork roll breakfast sandwiches. Locals know it’s never too early to start exploring one of the city’s most underrated wine lists.✵ Order: pork roll, hot half chicken, and a bottle of wine.
Tom’s RestaurantProspect Heights, BrooklynWake up early to avoid the weekend line and you’ll be rewarded with a sodium bomb of corned beef, bottomless cups of passable coffee, and absurdly crispy diner fries. The fluffiest pancake rumors are true, and the Christmas décor comes down for no season. After all, who can resist that kind of cheer? Bring cash!✵ Order: corned beef hash (extra-crispy, add a slice of American cheese) and eggs (scrambled, light), a side of fries, a side stack of pancakes, and a chocolate egg cream.
PacificanaSunset Park, BrooklynThis large ballroom looks like it came straight out of Beauty and the Beast (ceiling moldings, chandeliers, gold accents) and is sacred ground for dim sum lovers. But it’s also a lesson in strategy: When a cart comes by with the best stuff—shu mai, har cheung (rice noodle rolls), dan tat (egg tarts)—don’t hesitate for a moment. Eyes on the prize!✵ Order: cold jellyfish, spare ribs with squash, chicken feet, shu mai, har gow (shrimp dumplings), har cheung, and dan tat.
AtlaNoho, ManhattanThe best kind of brunch menu is one that reads like a lunch menu. And that's exactly why Enrique Olvera and Daniela Soto-Innes’ Mexican spot Atla is the only answer to the dreaded “Where should we do brunch?” text. The narrow, light-filled room is miraculously devoid of loud groups looking to get their bottomless mimosa fix—a rare find in the syrup-drenched, two-hour-wait brunch landscape of lower Manhattan.✵ Order: flaxseed chilaquiles, chicken enchiladas (get green and red, a.k.a. divorciadas), arctic char and farmer’s cheese tostada, and the fish Milanese.
BalthazarSoho, ManhattanEveryone has been to Balthazar. And everyone still goes to Balthazar. Locals. Tourists. Chefs. Downtown cool kids. Uptown grandparents. After 20-plus years, the classic French brasserie remains a New York institution thanks to its consistency and efficiency. Spend just as much time looking around the timeless room as you do admiring the precision of your omelet’s roll.✵ Order: omelet with herbs, smoked salmon tartine, and a plate of breakfast oysters.
Factory TamalLower East Side, ManhattanIf you’re the type of person who is comfortable standing on the sidewalk, face down in a brown paper bag of steaming, saucy tamales the morning after an ambitious evening out on the town, you’ve come to the right place. If you’d prefer to be sitting—out of sight from passersby—Factory Tamal has some seats inside too. Either way, this should be your first move, after the Advil of course.✵ Order: mole poblano tamal, salsa verde tamal, chipotle tamal, and the (off menu) Ludlow breakfast sandwich.
Neil’s Coffee ShopUpper East Side, ManhattanThe red neon “coffee shop” sign, hanging on the corner of 70th and Lexington, is a beautiful lie. There’s no fancy espresso machine in sight here—just a diner with a massive menu of breakfast classics. The same exact waitstaff has been here for decades, serving neighborhood locals, kids fresh off Central Park’s Little League fields, construction workers, and confused French tourists. If New York were a restaurant, it would be Neil’s.✵ Order: You can’t go wrong. Just don’t miss Neil’s exceptional breakfast sausage.
Sylvia’sHarlem, ManhattanMore than 50 years after it opened, this Harlem institution is hallowed ground. Sure, there are gospel singers and crowds that make getting a table for (post-church) Sunday brunch a challenge, but the most intensely religious experience is the soul food itself. Good things come to those who wait.✵ Order: chicken and waffles and Sylvia’s World Famous Talked About Bar-B-Que Ribs.
Hometown Bar-B-QueRed Hook, BrooklynThe brisket is just as good as what you’d find in Texas’s top barbecue joints, the beef rib is truly a spectacle to behold, and the sides are legitimately great. Lines are long, and there’s a reason for that. Listen to the live music on weekend nights and wait it out.✵ Order: beef ribs, brisket, lamb belly, queso mac & cheese, potato salad, and cornbread.
Santa Ana Deli & GroceryBushwick, BrooklynUp front, Mexican sodas, snacks, and beers can be grabbed from ramshackle shelves. In the back, a small griddle where meats are sizzled and seared before they’re slapped onto soft flour tortillas and topped with thinly sliced vegetables. Don’t forget to ask for red and green salsas with everything you order.✵ Order: cecina (salty beef jerky) tacos and crispy carnitas tacos with plenty of limes.
Casa AdelaAlphabet City, ManhattanAs any Philly or Chicago transplant can attest, BYOB joints are a rare commodity in NYC. Which is all the more reason why we’re grateful for Casa Adela. When you sit down on a not-so-comfortable chair and look around at the families passing rotisserie chickens, tostones, and mofongo over glass-covered vinyl tablecloths, you’ll understand the appeal: This is the place to go for real, honest, comforting Puerto Rican cooking. Discovery Wines and Alphabet City Wine Co. are both conveniently within walking distance, so don’t forget to snag a bottle or two on your way.✵ Order: half rotisserie chicken, carne guisada, chicharron de pollo, and pernil asado.
Los Tacos No. 1Chelsea, ManhattanIf you’re in Chelsea Market and not having a crowd/stroller/lost tourists–induced panic attack, chances are you just ate at Los Tacos No. 1, where the tacos taste as good as the braised and roast meats smell. Plus, it comes on some of the best flour tortillas in the city, which can also be found at its sister restaurant Los Mariscos, just down the hall.✵ Order: adobada tacos, pollo asado quesadilla, nopal plate, and chips with guacamole.
Le Relais de Venise L’EntrecôteMidtown East, ManhattanOkay, this French import also serves a salad. And cheap house wine. And dessert. But that’s it. When you’re there, you’re eating steak with buttery pan sauce and french fries for your entree, just like everyone else in the large, brightly lit dining room. Don’t skip out on a bottle of the very affordable (and acceptably mediocre) house wine.✵ Order: No, really, the only choice is steak frites.
Taste of PersiaFlatiron, ManhattanTaste of Persia may be located inside of Pizza Paradise, but you aren’t here for a slice. Owner Saeed Pourkay will walk you through his daily menu of bright, fragrant Persian staples. No matter what, you must get the ash reshteh, a thick soup with noodles, beans, greens, and lots of crunchy accompaniments like fried mint and shallots. This is a true New York hidden gem.✵ Order: Ash reshteh (thick noodle soup with greens and beans), fesenjan (tangy chicken stew), and beef kebab.
Court Street GrocersCarroll Gardens, Red Hook, and Williamsburg, Brooklyn; and Greenwich Village, ManhattanThe menu might seem intimidating at first—there are a lot of sandwiches—but once you make your way through the list, you’ll realize each item has earned its place. Whether it’s eggy, vegetarian, toasty, or cold cuts-y, Court Street nails it.✵ Order: broccoli Reuben, turkey club, pork roll breakfast sandwich, and a house-made celery soda.
Upside PizzaMidtown East, ManhattanWe don’t end up in the hellscape between Madison Square Garden and Times Square too often, but if there’s one reason to be there, it’s Upside Pizza. Naturally leavened dough. Mozzarella made in house. A bold, neon vibe straight out of the early ’90s. What more could you ask for? Slices are the move, whether you scarf them down at the bar tables by the window or on the sidewalk outside.✵ Order: white mushroom slice, plain slice, or Sicilian pepperoni slice, and a large fountain soda.
Tian Jin Dumpling HouseFlushing, QueensThe only less-than-wonderful part of Tian Jin is finding it for the first time. The compact dumpling spot is buried in the basement food court of the Golden Shopping Mall. But once you descend into the space, the thick-skinned steamed dumplings are all you’ll be thinking about. The dumplings are chewy and soft, and the meats and vegetables wrapped inside are seasoned aggressively. Sit at the counter and make use of the chili oil.✵ Order: lamb and squash dumplings, pork and cabbage dumplings, and pork, shrimp, and chive dumplings.
LoLo’s Seafood ShackHarlem, ManhattanHere, seafood (not hospitality) is the priority. File up to the rickety wooden counter and order your coconut shrimp quickly; they don’t have time for your indecision and won’t hesitate to tell you so. Take your number and run to a seat at one of the wooden tables in the cozy back room or in the backyard for an alfresco experience.✵ Order: crispy coconut shrimp and garlic fries basket, crab legs with shrimp steam pot, mixed drinks from the backyard bar.
Via CarotaWest Village, ManhattanIt’s not that Via Carota isn’t a dream dinner place. It’s just that we prefer to head in around noon for lunch, when a long daytime meal in Jody Williams and Rita Sodi’s stylish dining room makes us feel like we’re some West Village celebrity, Italian movie star, or power-lunching media mogul. Oh, and the wait—which can stretch up to three hours in the evening—is much more reasonable this time of day. Like Williams’ and Sodi’s other restaurants in the neighborhood (I Sodi, Buvette, and the new Bar Pisellino), it’s worth holding out for.✵ Order: the towering, not-so-typical green salad, cacio e pepe, a few items from the menu’s seasonal Verdure section (e.g. fried artichokes, grilled octopus), and a Negroni.
DinerWilliamsburg, BrooklynDon’t fight it: You will be charmed by this proto-hipster-era restaurant. It’s set in an old railcar, the waitstaff writes the seasonally prescribed menu on the paper tablecloths, and the classics (like the textbook burger) kill it as much as the experiments (like carpaccio with dill and caraway).✵ Order: the burger and whatever else speaks to you.
RakuEast Village, ManhattanSometimes in this eight-million-person city, you just need some peace, quiet, and udon. That’s when you head to this subdued, intimate noodle shop, where there’s jazz on the speakers and beautiful ceramic bowls of thick, chewy, satisfying udon imported from Japan.✵ Order: yaki nasu (fried eggplant with spicy miso pork and egg), the cold zaru udon (with seaweed, quail egg, and scallions) or hot kitsune udon (with sweet fried bean curd).
Arcade BakeryTribeca, ManhattanThis is one of the stranger bakeries you will ever enter. It’s in the lobby of an office building, the marble floor is sloped downhill, and the large wooden tables fold out of the walls. None of these things will even cross your radar once you have a croissant, pizza, sourdough loaf, or baguette in your hands. Everything coming out of Arcade’s ovens is exceptional—especially the laminated baguette (think shape of a baguette, texture of a croissant) rolled in everything seasoning.✵ Order: ham and cheese sandwich (sounds simple, but it will change you), grandma slice, quinoa loaf, laminated seedy baguette, and a chocolate croissant.
Superiority BurgerEast Village, ManhattanA vegetarian burger joint that meat-eaters love? However unlikely it may sound, it’s real. (And there’s nothing particularly healthy about it—in a good way.) Brooks Headley’s veggie burgers are all kinds of flavorful, from the dill pickles to the Muenster cheese to the kind-of-spicy patty. The tiny spot is almost always slammed, so take your haul half a block down 9th Street to a bench in Tompkins Square Park and get in some prime people watching at the same time.✵ Order: Superiority Burger, burnt broccoli salad, and whatever mind-blowing gelato/sorbet is on the menu.
Bo KyChinatown, ManhattanYou’ll have to fight your way through a wave of Mott Street tourists to make it to this decades-old Chinatown spot, but once you’re inside Bo Ky—at a no-frills table you might be sharing with strangers—large bowls of Southeast Asian noodle soups will make whatever crowds you waded through worth it. All soups clock in at under $8 and come with your choice of noodles; the egg noodles are especially good.✵ Order: curry chicken noodle soup, fried shrimp rolls, and half country-style chicken.
Cafe KashkarBrighton Beach, BrooklynYou love Uzbek-Uyghur food; you might just not know it yet. Chewy-tender hand-pulled noodles piled high with chunks of coriander-and-cumin-seasoned lamb. Flaky disks of pastry stuffed with tender bits of lamb and herbs. Juicy, fist-size steamed dumplings spilling forth with...more lamb. Okay: You may not love Uzbek-Uyghur food if you dislike lamb. But if you do, get thee to Brighton!✵ Order: geiro lagman (noodles with lamb and peppers), manti (small lamb dumplings), samsas (meat pastries).
Totonno’sConey Island, BrooklynLong before the proliferation of pizza trends (Detroit! House-milled flour! Wood-fired!), this no-nonsense pizzeria was slinging equally no-nonsense pies from its coal-fired oven. These beauties are thin, crispy, and while not quite New York in style, hold up just fine to the New York fold.✵ Order: a pepperoni pie and a sausage-and-mushroom pie.
Margon RestaurantTimes Square, ManhattanThis narrow spot on 46th Street shines brightly in the food desert known as Times Square. Margon serves Cuban classics from a long line of steam trays to construction workers, 9-to-5ers, tourists, and costumed superheroes alike. The Cuban sandwich is perfectly crispy and nothing close to healthy (as it should be).✵ Order: Cuban sandwich combo (with rice and beans), roast chicken, rice and beans, maduros.
Bunna CafeBushwick, BrooklynThis bustling, 100-percent plant-based Ethiopian spot is the ultimate answer to the age-old question, “Where are we going to take our vegetarian friends to dinner?” Sixteen bucks gets you a hubcap-size platter loaded with all manner of hearty, stewy, elaborately spiced vegetables and legumes piled atop supple, tangy injera. It’s more than enough for four hungry people. Eating with your hands, throwing back a couple of St. George Lagers, you’ll suddenly have a reason to be grateful for friends with dietary restrictions.✵ Order: lentil sambusas, Lunch for 2 (enough to feed three, depending on hunger levels).
Scarr’s PizzaLower East Side, ManhattanThe only thing stronger than the “old-school slice-joint vibe” at Scarr’s is the pizza itself. Flour is milled in-house, and pies are baked to perfection in two small ovens in the front of the shop. Sit in the faux wood–paneled back room—either at the bar with a glass of pét-nat, or at one of the four molded plywood booths with a pitcher of Presidente—and dig into a Sicilian slice with pepperoni or a classic slice with mushrooms. Then try convincing yourself that you’re as cool as the trendy Lower East Side ensembles surrounding you. Do it on a weeknight, though. Fridays and Saturdays are truly swamped.✵ Order: any slice or whole pie (especially if you're at one of the booths in the back with a crew) and a vegan Caesar salad.
88 Lan Zhou Handmade NoodlesChinatown, ManhattanBefore you question our instructions to order both the boiled and fried versions of the expertly wrapped pork-and-chive dumplings (the only variety served), consider this: A single order of eight will only cost you $4. So get a couple rounds for the table. Noodle soups, on the other hand, should be ordered for individual consumption—those you won’t want to share.✵ Order: pork-and-chive dumplings, brisket noodle soup, and stir-fried lamb noodles.
Astoria SeafoodLong Island City, QueensThere won’t be a moment of serenity during your time at this Greek BYOB. Counter staff shout orders to cooks. Chefs shout at waiters. Guests shout to one another. It’s loud. And it’s fun. Especially because you get to walk alongside the beds of ice and choose whichever fish, bivalves, and shellfish look good, and then tell the staff how to cook them. You hold all the cards, especially since it’s a BYOB.✵ Order: Grilled octopus, fried shrimp, grilled fish with lemon and herbs, and a large Greek salad.
J.G. MelonUpper East Side, ManhattanThe watermelon-themed decorations, green-checked tablecloths, and long-time employees give this legendary burger joint a vibe that feels permanent in the most special way, just like the years of seasoning that coat the sizzling griddle. It’s impossible to not feel like a true New Yorker when eating a burger at the original Upper East Side location (there are now two others in Manhattan). It’s an institution. ✵ Order: cheeseburger, cottage fries, chili (for dipping your fries), and a martini.
TakumenLong Island City, QueensPop through Takumen’s yellow door to grab a matcha latte and a buttery croissant to-go, or grab seats in the wood-clad dining room for chewy ramen noodles in deeply flavorful sauce, hefty rice bowls, and impossibly crispy chicken wings. It’s the perfect place to fuel up before visiting MoMA PS1 or the Noguchi Museum.✵ Order: steamed broccoli, any of the ramen soups, roasted peanut and spicy miso sauce chicken wings, soy-garlic chicken wings, and fried squid.
OotoyaTimes Square, Manhattan.No matter how crowded this homestyle Japanese restaurant is, it feels like a respite from a world where you are at permanent risk of being accosted by an adult dressed like a furry animal. Whether you’re going post-work or pre-theater, Ootoya’s generous portions of extra-crispy tonkatsu (fried pork cutlet) or simple preparations of grilled fish (like mackerel) have restorative properties.✵ Order: tonkatsu, chawanmushi (egg custard), and hot tea.
AtoboyMidtown East, ManhattanThe mini tasting menu that chef-owner Junghyun Park serves inside his futuristic-looking Korean restaurant is neither precious nor pretentious, thanks to the warm service and free flow of genre-bending dishes that change with the seasons. Pick three dishes for a set price ($46!) and order strategically with your companions so you get to try as much of the menu as possible.✵ Order: shrimp-stuffed endives, yellowtail crudo, galbi, and fried chicken with peanut sauce.
The Food SermonCrown Heights, BrooklynYou had big plans to cook a healthy, hearty Sunday dinner, but wow, it’s already six o’clock. If you’re lucky enough to live in the Food Sermon’s radius, a delicious Caribbean dinner is minutes from your door. We swear, these delivery bikes have jet packs. But if you need to get out of the apartment, there’s no such thing as a bad seat in this tiny spot: The counter running along the windows provides just as good a view for people watching outside as it does for watching cooks assembling the vibrant bowls inside.✵ Order: island bowl with braised oxtail, brown rice, chickpeas, and coconut ginger sauce.
Uncle BoonsNolita, ManhattanTwo hours?! Okay, fine. You’ll be glad you waited once you have that first bite of crispy lamb wrapped in lettuce. Uncle Boons is the Thai restaurant that never lets us down—the one that makes everyone happy, out-of-town relatives and fussy coworkers included. Every bite is fire—whether that means it’s spicy or straight awesome. Always over-order.✵ Order: yum mamuang (green mango salad), laab neuh gah (crispy lamb salad), kao pat puu (crab fried rice), massaman neuh (short ribs), khalum pli (ingenious rotisserie cabbage), Thai sausage duo, toasted coconut sundae (no matter how full you are).
Ugly BabyCarroll Gardens, BrooklynYes, chef Sirichai Sreparplarn’s cooking will scorch your lips and wreak havoc on your insides, but trust: Washing down fiery plates of stingray curry with glasses of Grüner Veltliner poured with quickness by the city’s most delightful staff is worth every bit of tomorrow’s agony.✵ Order: moo pad kapi (pork belly with shrimp paste), kang ped (stingray curry), khao soi nuer (beef curry with egg noodles), and laab ped udon (incredibly spicy duck noodles for the brave).
Cervo’sLower East Side, ManhattanWhy is this new-school Portuguese gem from the team behind Hot 10 winner Hart’s and rotisserie hotspot The Fly the perfect hangout for two? Because A) the best seats in this sliver of a space are those at the slim counter that runs the length of the bar and curves around the small open kitchen, and B) you’re going to be protective of every last drop of the garlicky sauces left over from the perfectly cooked seafood.✵ Order: olives, prawns, piri-piri chicken, sourdough bread, a bottle of high-acid white wine, and the vermouth service.
Mapo Korean BBQFlushing, QueensYou’ll need to take the Long Island Railroad to get here and probably drag a friend who speaks Korean (or Mandarin—the staff speaks both), but this old-school spot is worth all that planning ahead. It’s one of the few charcoal-powered Korean barbecue restaurants in New York, which gives the galbi the perfect touch of smoke that Midtown’s hot spots just can’t compete with.✵ Order: short rib with all the banchan and naengmyun. In the summer, keep an eye out for cold gochujang-marinated crab.
WildairLower East Side, ManhattanThis small space on Orchard Street is a scene (in a good way). It’s packed with in-the-know diners who are just as interested in Austrian pét-nat as they are in fried squid. You’ll go for the wine list and end up ordering the whole menu. Or you’ll go for dinner and become obsessed with the wine list. Either way, go.✵ Order: housemade bread with olive oil, beef tartare, potato dauphin, Little Gem lettuce, fried squid, and every dessert.
The Bar at Momofuku KoEast Village, ManhattanYou could go to David Chang’s lauded Momofuku Ko and drop $255 a person (sans booze) on an epic tasting-menu experience… or you could take a detour and dip into the walk-in-only bar and hit a few (remarkably affordable) highlights. The nose-clearing mustardy pickle sandwich costs $5. The so-weird-it-works cold fried chicken is $6 per piece (but, uh, get more than one piece). And the deliciously rich $45 duck pie can and should be split among a few friends. It’s like a tasting menu on your terms.✵ Order: foie gras–topped hamburger, pickle sandwich, sourdough crepes, duck pie, and cold fried chicken.
Randazzo’s Clam BarSheepshead Bay, BrooklynThe bright, carnival-esque signage tells you everything you need to know about the folks at Randazzo’s: They’ve been around for a while. Subtlety is not their specialty. And they serve seafood that tastes as classically Italian-American as their name suggests. This is the no-frills Brooklyn-Italian experience you’ve been searching for.✵ Order: fried calamari with spicy tomato sauce, linguine with clams, clams casino, penne alla vodka, fried fish sandwich, garlic bread, and some cheap white wine.
Deluxe Green BoChinatown, ManhattanReal Green Bo fanatics will remember this restaurant as Nice Green Bo, but while the name has changed the high quality of the food hasn’t. Most venture to the weathered Bayard Street haunt for fried rice or noodles with pork and fermented cabbage (the house specialty), but the soup dumplings are some of the best in the city. Share everything and bring cash.✵ Order: hot and spicy wontons, crispy noodles with pork and fermented cabbage, bean sprouts and snow peas, fried pork dumplings, and pork soup dumplings.
Café Altro ParadisoSoho, ManhattanThere might not be a more complete date-night restaurant in New York City. The large, humming room. The breezy, contemporary design. The warm, gentle glow. The well-balanced wine list. The innovative but approachable cocktails. The soulful playlists. The amaro list. The dessert wine. The sorbet. And that’s to say nothing of Ignacio Mattos’ menu of modern, shareable Italian plates, or Natasha Pickowicz’s stunning desserts. Bring someone you want to impress...without seeming like you’re trying to impress them.✵ Order: olives, octopus, fennel salad, cacio e pepe, and a side of beans. Finish with a digestivo.
Win SonEast Williamsburg, BrooklynThe new-school Taiwanese spot is best enjoyed with a group of at least four (or fewer, who really know how to eat). And it’s always more enjoyable if those people aren’t opposed to an impromptu round of shots (which staff may or may not encourage) between excellent fried eggplant and spicy fly’s head (minced pork, fermented beans, chives, and chiles). Win Son is always slammed, so show up early and be ready to hang out by the bar with a drink while you wait.✵ Order: roasted peanuts, marinated cucumbers, fried eggplant, fly’s head, sesame noodles, and head-on prawns with minced pork in shrimp broth.
TanoreenBay Ridge, BrooklynSometimes you want it all: copious amounts of appetizers, a sizable entrée, and a worth-it dessert. Tanoreen is there for you with tahini-laced vegetables and Middle Eastern meat dishes that are big enough for sharing. But the real star is the knafeh, a cheese-based dessert with thin layers of sweetened noodles. Get the large, even if you’re very full.✵ Order: Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, fetti with lamb, baked eggplant, knafeh.
Keens SteakhouseMidtown West, ManhattanNever has a piece of meat received as much attention as the mutton chop from this historic steakhouse (est. 1885!). But there’s more to love about Keens than the fabled two-pound lamb saddle chop (ehem, not actually mutton). There’s the deep list of single-malt Scotches. Waiters dressed in black bow ties and pressed red vests. The expertly stirred martinis. And it’s got one of the largest collections of churchwarden tobacco pipes in the world—which you’ll see hanging from the ceiling, as you lean back and pat your belly.✵ Order: wedge salad, shrimp cocktail, mutton chop, porterhouse for two, creamed spinach, hash browns, and a dry martini or three.
Yakitori TottoMidtown West, Manhattan“Eating with your eyes” doesn’t get any realer—or more thrilling—than at the counter of this temple to all things yakitori. Here’s our method: 1) Order the chicken-y bits. 2) Watch a master expertly grill your skewers over smoldering charcoal, spritzing with sake and sprinkling some pink Himalayan sea salt with each rotation of the meat. 3) Eat. 4) Drain your Asahi. 5) Repeat.✵ Order: all the chicken (neck, oyster, gizzard, chewy “soft knee bone” nankotsu) and shishito peppers brushed with miso.
Cherry PointGreenpoint, BrooklynYou’re in Greenpoint. It’s cold out (probably). And you’ve got meat on the mind. That means you should be heading to Cherry Point, where the lights are dimmed, every table gives you that warm fuzzy feeling inside, and the number of hearty meat dishes will keep you content. Stop in for a quick snack, or settle in for a marathon dinner. Either way, you’ll leave happy.✵ Order: the small martini (we’re adults here), a bottle of red wine, steak tartare, oysters, beef tongue salad, whitefish dip with house-made crackers, and duck breast.
OpsBushwick, BrooklynWhen decision fatigue is the diagnosis, this buzzy Brooklyn pizza place is the cure. The menus are the size of Hallmark cards, featuring a short list of house cocktails, a handful of snacks, exactly one (always perfect) farmers’ market salad that changes daily, and the main event: a selection of perfectly blistered, thoughtfully topped, naturally leavened pizzas. There isn’t even a wine list to worry about. Tell your server what you like, and they’ll bring you tastes from the ever-changing lineup of natural wines—$14 per glass, $50 per bottle, always.✵ Order: the salad (large), the Square (tomatoes, house mozzarella, olives, basil, oregano), Juno (broccoli rabe, potatoes, provola, ricotta salata), and Pops (tomatoes, house mozzarella, guanciale, onions, pecorino) pies.
L&B Spumoni GardensBensonhurst, BrooklynThis spectacular spaghetti palace, open since 1939, is worth the trek to Bensonhurst, especially for big group dinners with zero plans for later—lying flat on your back is the only thing you’ll want to do after eating here. Most pilgrims come for the Sicilian-style pizza (not a bad plan), but if you’re making the trip, go for the four-course family-style Chef’s Table menu. How else will you experience Dueling Shrimp, an oversize platter of shrimp, half fried, half boiled?✵ Order: L&B Sicilian pie, mozzarella in carrozza, rice balls, broccoli rabe and sausage pasta, chicken Parmesan.
FrenchetteTribeca, ManhattanAssume the duck frites are happening, and then treat the rest of the menu at this new-school French bistro as a to-do list (boudin blanc, roast chicken for two on a plank of garlic-butter baguette) and get to work. Dive into a hard-to-find bottle of biodynamic wine from one of the best lists in the city. Keep an eye out for celebrities and powerful people. Then play it cool. Tonight, you’re one of them.✵ Order: duck frites (duh), roast chicken, boudin blanc, softly scrambled eggs with garlicky snails, and Paris-brest à la pistache.
Casa EnriqueLong Island City, QueensTo say that Casa Enrique is a restaurant that serves amazing enchiladas is both telling the truth and selling it short. The saucy, stuffed tortillas are profoundly flavorful and comforting, but so is every other Mexican dish served at this LIC staple. Go for a lazy dinner and do not stop after your second margarita.✵ Order: guacamole, rajas con crema, lengua tacos, chicken and salsa verde enchiladas, chile relleno, and countless margaritas.
InsaGowanus, BrooklynUsually belting out the words to Fleetwood Mac’s “Landslide” inside a restaurant would get you kicked out. But at Insa, it’s quite the opposite. After you finish up an ambitious spread of banchan and a sizable quotient of sizzling pork belly, you and your crew can head to a separate section of the restaurant and start singing (slightly off-key) karaoke in a private room.✵ Order: haemul pajeon (seafood pancake), bulgogi, thick-cut pork belly and thinly sliced brisket (for grilling), and dubu kimchi.
AddaLong Island City, QueensCome to Adda as a group of four. Any fewer and you won’t make a dent in the menu, any more and it might be awhile before one of the tables in the energetic room opens up. Load up on whatever you need (mango lassis? Limca sodas? Chardonnay from the Finger Lakes?) to power through the purposeful heat and powerful spices at the backbone of the menu, from the array of snacks you won’t be able to get enough of at the start of the meal to the slow-cooked goat biryani you’ll take home with you when you finally and unwillingly call it quits.✵ Order: tawa kaleji (chicken livers), dilliwala butter chicken, lucknow dum biryani (slow-cooked goat).
Bar GotoLower East Side, ManhattanThe confines of this thoughtfully designed jewel box are modeled after Tokyo’s intimate cocktail bars, with a wall of Japanese whiskies and a compact list of craveable bar snacks to soak it all up. The tables are close, providing excellent eavesdropping opportunities. Take full advantage of the cocktail list.✵ Order: house pickles, okonomiyaki, miso wings, highballs.
As IsHell’s Kitchen, ManhattanThe bar scene in Hell’s Kitchen is, well, hellish. But As Is deviates from the neighborhood norm. This beautifully designed bar—with tiled floors, dark woods, and custom light fixtures—rotates more than a dozen of the most exciting taps in the city (highlighting local faves Grimm Artisanal Ales, Other Half Brewing, and Mikkeller NYC, as well as beers from grail-worthy breweries Hill Farmstead and Cantillon), and puts just as much emphasis on fun and accessibility as it does on beer quality. This is the craft beer bar for beer nerds and novices alike.✵ Order: something hoppy on tap, a saison from the bottle list, and a plate of nachos.
Honey’sBushwick, BrooklynThey make mead at the aptly named Honey’s, but that doesn’t mean you have to drink the fermented honey water if you go here. This corner bar with a neon-pink sign is run by mad-scientist bartender Arley Marks, who also curates the short list of deep-cut natural wines from all over the world and cocktails like the Hola Yola, made with Yola mezcal, wildflower mead (yup!), byrrh grand quinquina (a French aperitif), and a spritz of absinthe.✵ Order: Mead! Do it! It’s great! For real! Or just stick with a glass of white wine.
Gold Star Beer CounterProspect Heights, BrooklynGold Star Beer Counter is two things: a bar and a bottle shop. But whether you’re drinking a Belgian saison there or taking some hazy cans of IPA to-go, it’s absolutely one of the best places in the five boroughs to get a beer. And yes, you can walk right up to the window from the sidewalk and buy said beer.✵ Order: Ask the bartenders which beers are fresh, tasty, and interesting. And get a salami picante sandwich while you’re at it.
Achilles HeelGreenpoint, BrooklynFour friends walk into a bar. One wants a glass of easy-drinking red. Another wants a cold can of Genesee. The third could go for a bubbly spritz laced with Averna. And the fourth would rather go straight to pasta with braised pork and white beans. That bar is Achilles Heel—a 100-plus-year-old neighborhood spot on a corner in Greenpoint that has...something for everyone.✵ Order: the seasonal spritz, oysters, lentil dip, marinated short rib, and anything that involves She Wolf Bakery bread.
Threes BrewingGowanus, BrooklynText your friends, grab a few pitchers of Vliet (the house pilsner), and appreciate a perfect summer day on Threes’ sprawling outdoor patio. Then clear your calendar for the afternoon: With bar food from the Meat Hook and a reliably excellent tap list, there’s no better place to camp out for the next...eight hours. Threes is unparalleled as an outdoor summer drinking spot, but a large indoor space and heated tents outside (November to April) keep the hangout going year-round.✵ Order: any of the house-brewed beers, a frozen piña colada, and the fried chicken sandwich.
LoisAlphabet City, ManhattanThe lights are low, the natural wine is on tap, and the ample cheese plate comes with a schmear of miso-mustard dressing. The music varies, but it’s always a vibe. Ask the approachable bartenders what’s new on the tap list, taste a few wines, and then commit to a carafe and a spot by the windows.✵ Order: sausage rolls, olives, seasonal salad, the cheese plate, and a carafe of wine on tap.
Josie’s BarAlphabet City, ManhattanThere’s a bouncer at Josie’s. And probably some NYU students. And maybe a group of washed-up East Village punk rockers. And definitely someone running the pool table. But Josie’s is a dive bar. This is what you signed up for.✵ Order: cheap beer and well whiskey.
The Ten BellsLower East Side, ManhattanWine bars are frequently plagued by pretentiousness. The Ten Bells is not, and it boasts one of the most well-rounded and exciting lists of by-the-glass natural wine in the city. It’s filled with young, loud, joyous people there to have a good time in the space’s warm orange glow (which makes everything and everyone look more attractive). Show up early and stay late. Spots at the bar—especially on weekends—are coveted.✵ Order: Spanish tortilla, mortadella, marinated olives, oysters, and glasses or bottles of whatever you’ve never tried before.
Bemelmans BarUpper East Side, ManhattanA live piano player. Expertly made classic cocktails. Walls painted by Ludwig Bemelmans, the guy who illustrated Madeline. All inside an iconic Art Deco hotel that has discreetly housed the world’s most famous actors, politicians, and musicians. (Jagger! Princess Di! JFK! Anjelica Huston and Jack Nicholson! We’re talking about The Carlyle! Hello!) This is Upper East Side ambiance in its purest form—with prices to match (not to mention the cover charge after 9:30 p.m.).✵ Order: a martini, old Scotch, a glass of champagne, or whatever else makes you feel like a millionaire.
Old Town BarFlatiron, ManhattanWhether or not you’re using them, it’s important to know that Old Town Bar has the oldest urinals in New York City. Aside from that, the long mahogany bar is well-polished from a century of forearm leans. The booths are cozy enough to keep your secrets. And the dumbwaiters are still bringing fries down from the kitchen upstairs. If it feels familiar, that’s because you’ve seen it before: The bar’s shown up in everything from The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel to House of Pain’s music video for “Jump Around.”✵ Order: a rye Manhattan, a copy of the New York Post, Buffalo wings, and fries.
Lovers RockBed-Stuy, BrooklynThis Bed-Stuy bar wasn’t around in the ’90s, but you wouldn’t know it from the exposed red light bulbs, palm tree iconography, and thumping Caribbeats. If the need to escape that vibe for a minute overwhelms you, the backyard is big and comfortable.✵ Order: Jamaican rums, rum punch, and very cold beer.
The Long Island BarCobble Hill, BrooklynThings that make this Cobble Hill bar an excellent place to drink: The classic-leaning cocktails are well-crafted but not precious. (There are no “mixologists” here!) The restored midcentury interior is stylish but not fancy. And the thin-patty burger is exactly what you’ll want to eat with that second cocktail. Oh, and you can usually get a seat no problem.✵ Order: a Boulevardier and the Ladies’ Burger.
The FlyBed-Stuy, BrooklynThere’s nowhere better to accommodate the urge to hold residency at a wine bar than The Fly. Show up early with a couple pals, grab some seats at the bar, and as friends come and go throughout the evening, move from bottle to rotisserie chicken to glass to chicken sandwich back to bottle again. If a booth opens up, grab it. Your roster may change, but this rule remains a constant: Don’t stop ordering plates of fries until the last friend is out the door. Make this bar-slash-restaurant your home.✵ Order: chicken sandwich, rotisserie chicken, french fries, and salad.
Sake Bar SatskoAlphabet City, ManhattanSatsko is one of those rare specialty bars that has somehow managed to still feel like a true neighborhood spot. This tiny Alphabet City bar is staffed by bartenders who really want to serve you sake. The list is on the smaller side but filled with everything from clean, dry junmai ginjo to weirder, fruity, unpasteurized varieties. The bartenders—who control the playlists featuring a mix of soul, disco, electronic, chill-wave, and ambient music—also have very good taste in tunes.✵ Order: a glass of unpasteurized sake recommended by the bartender and some fried shishito peppers.
Great N.Y. NoodletownChinatown, ManhattanIt would take you months to work your way through the entire menu at this Chinatown mainstay. From barbecued meats to crispy noodles, dumpling soup to congee, ginger-soaked greens to bottles of Tsingtao, Great N.Y. Noodletown is a Chinatown MVP for good reason. Show up with a crew, order aggressively (and selectively), and add chile sauce or ginger scallion sauce to everything.✵ Order: Barbecued pork, shrimp dumplings, Chinese sausage fried rice, crispy noodles with roast duck, shredded chicken and pea shoots, sea bass with flowering chives, and salt-baked shrimp.
Punjabi Deli & GroceryEast Village, ManhattanThis tiny Sikh deli just off Houston Street serves generously seasoned South Asian food 24 hours a day, but after 1 a.m. is when you want to show up and survey the scene. Cab drivers run in and out, some to grab a chai and others just to use the restroom. Drunk college students huddle outside over $5 bowls of rice and curried vegetables. Post-shift service workers carry out bags of samosas to take home. The cheap, comforting cooking—which also happens to be vegan (in case you happen to be the type who cares)—appeals to literally everyone who’s still awake.✵ Order: Samosas, pakora, a two-vegetable rice combo, and a ginger-loaded Indian-style chai for the trip home.
The CommodoreWilliamsburg, BrooklynIf you want to eat a phenomenal hot chicken sandwich without listening to a DJ or bumping into someone doing the two-step, go to this tiki-ish Williamsburg bar on the early side. If you’re into a crowded room, occasionally toppled micheladas, and the steady bump of Bronski Beat, go on the later side. Either way you’re going to have a good time.✵ Order: A spicy fried chicken sandwich for you, a plate of nachos for the table, and a glass filled with something frozen and boozy.
Chilo’sBed-Stuy, BrooklynNo, NYC isn’t known for its Mexican food, and this taco truck perma-parked on a dive bar patio isn’t going to change that. But once you’re a few Tecates and carnitas tacos deep, Chilo’s might make you feel like you’re in Austin or L.A., and sometimes that’s enough.✵ Order: Carnitas, cochinita, huitlacoche, and chorizo tacos—and a frozen margarita.
Peppa’sCrown Heights, BrooklynBars close. Parties end. But Caribbean comfort food at Peppa’s is forever. Saunter up to the window alongside cabbies, night owls, and neighborhood regulars any time from 10 a.m. to 6 a.m (that’s 20 hours of the day), and fill all the braised oxtail–shaped holes in your heart.✵ Order: Jerk chicken dinner or the oxtail dinner.
VeselkaEast Village, ManhattanSkip the dollar slice and head to Veselka, where partiers, elderly insomniacs, and East Village bar-goers unite over pierogies, borscht, and stuffed cabbage. Yes, this 24/7 spot is uniquely suited for soaking up late-night booze, but be respectful: You’re in a New York institution.✵ Order: As we said, pierogies, stuffed cabbage (with tomato sauce), and borscht.
Blue Ribbon BrasserieSoho, ManhattanFifteen years past what logically should have been its peak, Blue Ribbon is still the move. The menu is filled with appealing classics like fried chicken, escargot, and a lobster-loaded paella for the table, and the cocktails (also classics) are reliably excellent. The room is small enough that it always feel alive, even at 3 a.m.✵ Order: Shrimp cocktail, oysters, steak tartare, paella royale, and fried chicken.
Sey CoffeeEast Williamsburg, BrooklynThe coffee at Sey is bright, flavorful, and always freshly roasted. (You can see where it all goes down in the back of the greenery-draped open space.) But the real advantage here is the opportunity to learn from incredibly knowledgeable and friendly baristas. Since the beans are roasted in-house, the staff can give you accurate flavor notes, brewing instructions, and origin information about every coffee on the roster.✵ Order: drip or espresso. Both might change you.
Black Fox Coffee Co.Financial District, ManhattanOrdering espresso or cold brew or drip is not enough of a clarification at Black Fox. The downtown coffee capital wants to know how you plan to drink it (hot? With milk? Iced? With tonic?), so staffers can pick the best beans for the job. The selection of beans comes from roasters spanning Vancouver to Boston to Copenhagen and is the most diverse in the city, which means there’s always something new to explore.✵ Order: something you haven’t tried before (like a naturally processed Kenyan pour-over) and a pastry to pair.
Saraghina BakeryBed-Stuy, BrooklynFirst there was the restaurant (reliably delicious). Then there was the tapas bar (reliably boozy). And then there was the bakery—our favorite of the bunch—reliably stocked with warm loaves, fresh pastas, and house-made pastries. It’s the only line worth waiting in on a weekend morning in Brooklyn.✵ Order: whole wheat miche, whatever croissant they’re selling that day.
HomecomingGreenpoint, BrooklynBuying a cortado, a ceramic planter, and a snake plant as part of a regular Sunday morning routine may sound like the most Brooklyn thing you’ve ever heard, but Homecoming is the kind of place where all that can happen—and without becoming a parody of itself.✵ Order: whatever you usually get.
Té CompanyWest Village, ManhattanTé Company is not a place for rushing. The tea menu is overwhelming in scope, and the food comes when it comes, which is usually not that quickly. It’s all part of the charm. This is where you go when you’ve got nowhere else to be except catching up with an old friend over a pot of expertly sourced Taiwanese tea and some of the most painstakingly flawless pastries in the city.✵ Order: Tea! Pineapple linzer cookies plus any other dessert.
New Flushing BakeryFlushing, QueensThe process at this miniscule storefront takes about three minutes: Walk in, ask the woman behind the counter for as many egg tarts as you can carry, pay with cash, accept the paper bag filled with flaky, sweet, eggy pastries, and walk right out. If you can’t help yourself, stand on the sidewalk outside and rip through a couple of Flushing’s premier pastries.✵ Order: many Portuguese egg custard tarts.
Flora BarUpper East Side, ManhattanFlora Bar is a marvel of New York restaurant real estate. There’s ample seating, reservations for booking, humane noise levels, and a built-in activity: It’s attached to the Met Breuer, the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s contemporary art annex. Well, only for another year, so go now and hit the galleries first. Then sit down for a proper meal if you can, or just grab any (or all) of the crazy-good pastries that Natasha Pickowicz stocks in the grab-and-go coffee bar.✵ Order: greens pie, espresso, sticky buns—or whatever’s left in the pastry case.
AbraçoEast Village, ManhattanIn a Venn diagram of cafés that excel in house-roasted coffee and ones that excel in house-made baked goods, Abraço is the rare occupant of the space where both circles overlap. Visitors can expect an always-full pastry case, the steady drip of deeply flavorful espresso coming from the La Marzocco, jazz reverberating from the turntable, and a patio filled with proud regulars. There isn’t a cafe more well-rounded, consistent, and downright cool in the five boroughs. You’ll start looking for apartments in the neighborhood as soon as you leave.✵ Order: espresso drinks, olive oil cake, bocadillos, cured olive cookies, and the babka.
Sahadi’sBrooklyn Heights, BrooklynIf you’ve ever wanted to make a BA recipe but wondered, “Where can I get za’atar or harissa or labneh?” the answer is Sahadi’s, a 124-year-old family-owned business and Brooklyn hub for Middle Eastern spices, stellar hummus, an expansive array of canned goods, and well-priced bulk bin nuts, seeds, and dried fruits.✵ Buy: All the nuts, hummus, and essential spices.
Wine TherapyNolita, ManhattanWine Therapy is kind of like the Supreme of wine stores. It will always have the hypebeast selections—Lammidia, Ruth Lewandowski, Rabasco—and you’re sure to see some industry producers, buyers, and personalities in the shop. The curation is top-notch, so pick a bottle that looks good to you. (Name checks not ringing a bell? Don’t worry: The knowledgeable staff is friendly and there to help. Just ask what they’re into right now.)✵ Buy: Hyped-up (and totally deserving) bottles from producers like Fable Farm Fermentory, Oyster River Winegrowers, Martha Stoumen, and Alessandro Viola.
Kalustyan’sKips Bay, ManhattanWhatever ingredient you need, Kalustyan’s stocks it. The sprawling international grocery store is every chef’s go-to spot for dried beans, heritage rice, and high-quality spices, but don’t skip the fridge stocked with marinated butter beans, stuffed parathas, and creamy labneh. Go with a game plan.✵ Buy: Hard-to-find spices, obscure varieties of chile flakes, brown chori beans, and masoor dal.
Astor Wine & SpiritsNoho, ManhattanThis isn’t exactly your intimate, everybody-knows-your-name wine shop, but it is the one that has the best website, hands-down, and great wine descriptions. Sales every Tuesday will test your willpower and wine budget, but take advantage of them and stock up for the season. This. Place. Has. Everything. Including an unbeatable selection of amaro, gin, and rare whiskey.✵ Buy: A case of wine (cases are always 10 percent off), a grab bag of whatever the Tuesday sale is, backup Campari and Beefeater, and a bottle of something you’ve been wanting to explore.
Simple SyrupCrown Heights, BrooklynNo, you’ve never had that carbonically macerated purple-looking wine before. Yes, you’re getting two bottles. And yes, the staff knows that that’s exactly what you want after a 30-second interrogation. When the person at the counter at Simple Syrup hands you a bottle, you don’t ask questions. You buy. You drink. And you return for more.✵ Buy: Whatever they tell you to.
Murray'sWest Village, ManhattanThis is Disney World for dairy lovers—the best cheese counter in New York, period. The mongers know their stuff, and can help you find what you need, even if you aren’t sure what that is. Grab something you haven’t tried before; stock up on the quality pastas, olives, beans, and yogurt you’ll find in the back of the store; and pick out a sandwich to go for good measure.✵ Buy: Challerhocker, Harbison, and Murray’s house-label cheeses like Annelies and Stockinghall.
Discovery WinesAlphabet City, ManhattanThis East Side wine shop has a dedicated wall named “Mag Wall.” That should be all you need to know about the unrivaled selection of large-format wines from small natural producers. Whether you’re in the market for something serious or fun, red or white, affordable or ambitious, domestic or foreign, still or sparkling, Discovery will have the fuel you need to take your party all the way.✵ Buy: Is that a mag of Sébastien Riffault Sancerre? Yeah, grab one of those.
Chinatown Supermarket of ManhattanLower East Side, ManhattanUpstairs, stock up on all your pantry needs, impulse snacks, household cleaning supplies, and rice. Downstairs, bright fresh produce at an unbeatable price, seafood, and frozen foods you can’t find anywhere else.✵ Buy: Fried tofu cubes, black bean paste, wonton skins, frozen dumplings, red bean ice pops, and chile crisp.
Russ & DaughtersLower East Side, ManhattanIf it seems like the staff painstakingly slicing fish against a backdrop of dried fruit and sturdy babka loaves know what they’re doing, that’s because they do—and this place has been at it for more than 100 years. Take a numbered ticket, claim a corner of linoleum, and gawk at the sturgeon while rehearsing your bagel-and-lox order.✵ Buy: Gravlax or pastrami-cured salmon on a sesame or everything bagel with scallion cream cheese, the Super Heebster bagel sandwich, and all the smoked fish you need for that brunch you’re throwing this weekend.
