    A tasting menu restaurant with adventurous food that actually tastes good.

    A classic Italian joint in every way, except for the Australian staff and the french fries on pasta. So...maybe not so classic. But definitely awesome.

  3. Freemans NY

    Freemans ranks among our favorite restaurants of all time. We’ve got a lot of history here, and the food, although not 9.0 worthy as it once was back when we started this site, is still really damn good.

  4. Russ & Daughters isn’t your typical bagel place. This is a smoked fish museum of deliciousness that people come from near and far to experience.

    After years of waiting and years worth of articles about the white guy from Long Island who became a ramen king in Japan, we finally have our very own Ivan Ramen brick and mortar restaurant in New York City. Get the hell in here and order some ramen, pronto.

  6. Katz’s Deli isn’t just a Classic NYC Establishment, it’s a landmark that deserves government funding at this point.
