    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.

    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.

    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. 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. 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.

    Some of the more “seasoned” of you might remember Acme from its previous life as a divey, down and dirty Cajun eatery and music venue. But somehow, this place has been completely reinvented in a matter of months, and the restaurant is once again on the cutting edge of cool – only this time it’s cool from a different continent.

  7. The hottest new steakhouse in town that doesn't really feel like a steakhouse. Also, you'll probably see Taylor Swift there.
