  1. Upland NYC
    9.1
    $$$

    Upland

    345 Park Avenue South
    New York, NY 10010

    Universally appealing, consistently excellent, and our current favorite place in all of NYC. Upland is not only the best new restaurant that opened in 2014, it’s the best new restaurant to open in a really long time.

  2. Blue Ribbon 97 Sullivan Street
    9.0
    $$$$

    Blue Ribbon Brasserie

    97 Sullivan St.
    New York, NY 10012

    Stang’s number one favorite restaurant in town. Blue Ribbon Brasserie never disappoints.

  3. L'Artusi
    9.0
    $$$

    L’Artusi

    228 W. 10th St.
    New York, NY 10014

    An absolute classic. It hardly gets better than L’Artusi, and that’s been the case for a long time.

  4. Vinegar Hill House
    8.9
    $$$

    Vinegar Hill House

    72 Hudson Ave.
    Brooklyn, NY 11201

    One of our favorite restaurants, especially in the summer when their incredible back garden is in full swing. Bring some bug spray, eat a pork chop.

  5. Perla
    8.9
    $$$

    Perla

    24 Minetta Ln.
    New York, NY 10012

    We are officially obsessed with Gabe Stuhlman and some guy from Eataly’s new restaurant Perla, and are probably about to set unreasonably high expectations for your first meal there. You’re welcome.

  6. Charlie Bird
    8.8
    $$$$

    Charlie Bird

    5 King St.
    New York, NY 10012

    Most everything on the menu at Charlie Bird is fantastic. But what’s really got our attention are two things that these people already do better than almost anyone else: service and wine.

  7. Torrisi
    8.7
    $$$

    Torrisi Italian Specialties

    250 Mulberry St.
    New York, NY 10012

    If you enjoy consuming as much as we do and aren’t held down by underdeveloped taste buds, allergies or religious beliefs, you’re going to love Torrisi Italian Specialties.
