Momofuku Ko is expensive, but there are no white tablecloths, no doting waiters, and no busboys with breadcrumb scrapers. Just a front row seat to some of the most creative cooking you can find anywhere.

Believe the hype. This is an all time Infatuation favorite. Be prepared to eat an unhealthy amount of pork and be very, very happy about it.

A meal at Ippudo is one of the best you can have in this city. However, it’s so good that the only way to efficiently rock Ippudo these days is to tell your boss you have a doctors appointment and show up on a weekday at 4pm, ready to do bad things to your insides.

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.

Is this the best pizza in New York City? We’re not dumb enough to make that bold claim. This is, however, our most frequented pizza joint in town. Motorino is incredible.

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.

Not the cheapest bowl of noodles in New York, and maybe not even the best, but Momofuku Noodle Bar is an indisputable Infatuation favorite. Come for all the other amazing things this place has to offer, like fried chicken, pork buns, and a soft serve machine.
