Celebrity Sightings

  1. Gato


    324 Lafayette St.
    New York, NY 10012

    Don’t worry about the fact that it’s a celebrity chef’s restaurant. Gato will remind you why Bobby Flay became famous in the first place – because he can f*cking cook.

  2. Babbo


    110 Waverly Pl.
    New York, NY 10011

    Of all the Batali restaurants, Babbo is the one most aligned with the Infatuation ideals for good eating. Babbo exemplifies everything we want out of a classic Manhattan dining experience. The food, the wine, the service. It’s all top notch.

  3. Cafe Habana

    Café Habana

    17 Prince St.
    New York, NY 10012

    Café Habana is and always will be one of the coolest and (and best) places to eat in New York City. Yes it’s great for brunch, but we like it best during the week, when the crowds aren’t quite so crazy.

  4. Locanda Verde

    Locanda Verde

    377 Greenwich St.
    New York, NY 10013

    An Infatuation favorite, Locanda Verde is a very good restaurant, and it is so because the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.

  5. Pure Food And WIne

    Pure Food And Wine

    54 Irving Pl.
    New York, NY 10003

    You obviously know by now that we’re not vegetarians. At times, this site feels like little more than a lengthy discussion about skirt steak and pork parts. Why then, are we giving so much love to a restaurant serving only raw food? Because while we may not be vegetarians, we are devoted hedonists, and Pure Food and Wine is all about pleasure.

  6. Spotted Pig

    The Spotted Pig

    314 W. 11th St.
    New York, NY 10014

    Possibly New York’s most famous “gastro-pub”, The Spotted Pig is ideal for evenings where you’re looking to mix it up, throw a couple down, and see where the night takes you.

  7. ABC Kitchen

    ABC Kitchen

    35 E. 18th St.
    New York, NY 10003

    Jean-Georges kills it. We know this. The dude is one of the most inventive and creative restaurateurs that’s ever lived. The locavore/farm to table movement that has recently taken hold of the New York dining scene is nothing new to J.G. – he’s been quietly playing that game for decades. That’s why it’s no surprise […]
