    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.

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

    When good restaurants get better. Il Buco Alimentari e Vineria gets an extremely high rating, along with the honor of being one the only things in history to improve after a key lineup change.

    Yes, there is definitely a scene at Narcissa. But it’s more subdued and humble than the crowd at the other Standard Hotel. Maybe that’s because the staff is so nice. Or maybe it’s because people are actually eating the food.

  5. Barbuto

    A trendy spot, but for a more sedate group...not the hair gel and high heels crowd that you find a few blocks north in the meatpacking district. Simple food, top quality ingredients, a good wine and beer list - all the makings of an Immaculate Infatuation mainstay.

  6. Shalom Japan is what happens when a pair of chefs from different backgrounds (Japanese and Jewish) meet, fall in love, and start making food instead of babies. This exceptional Williamsburg spot should be at the top of your Hit List.

    Empellon has evolved over the last few years, but it's still one of the most exciting Mexican restaurants in a city with very little excitement in that department.
