Hattie B’s Hot Chicken
Hattie B’s is coming all the way from Nashville, Tennessee, and they’re bringing their world famous hot chicken with them. They can make chicken that’s hot enough to end a years long vow of silence, but they’ll have the milder recipe available too.
Shake Shack x [To Be Announced] Collab
At each EEEEEATSCON, Shake Shack has teamed up with another restaurant to collaborate on an exclusive burger for one weekend only. This time around, we’re keeping it a surprise...for now.
Getting over a 9.0 from The Infatuation is like successfully representing yourself in court. It’s not impossible, but it’s pretty hard. With a 9.1 on Infatuation NYC, Crown Shy is one of our favorite new restaurants this year, and you won’t need to make a reservation a month in advance to try it.
If you haven't heard, one of NYC's absolute best pizza places is actually in… New Jersey. Before you grab your pitchforks, grab a pie at EEEEEATSCON. This Jersey City spot sources almost all its ingredients from its home state, and they'll be bringing their wood-fired pies to Forest Hills.
Tokyo Record Bar
Tokyo Record Bar is an underground izakaya in Greenwich Village where you eat a seven course meal while listening to songs you handpicked on vinyl. There isn’t really anything like Tokyo Record Bar in NYC, and they’re bringing a unique experience to EEEEEATSCON. Stay tuned for details on how to get in.
Di An Di
A top spot on our Best New Restaurants list in 2018, and one of our favorite places to eat Vietnamese food in NYC. Expect some classics as well as dishes you’ve never seen before, like the Vietnamese pizza.
Our favorite restaurant and wine bar from London (and our highest rated with a 9.5), is curating The Wine Room at EEEEEATSCON this year. Come drink some wine, learn a little bit about what’s in your glass, and find out why Noble Rot is the first place we send anyone going to London.
Sanguich De Miami
The Infatuation is launching in Miami shortly after EEEEEATSCON NY. Because we're extremely excited about that, we're bringing the city's best Cubano up north. This Little Havana spot is a Miami must.
If trying to make a name for yourself as a brand new pizza place in NYC is like being the new kid at school with something to prove, then Mama’s TOO! just blew everyone away with a breakdance routine at homecoming.
One bite of the breakfast sandwiches, French crullers, or basically anything Daily Provisions makes, and you’ll find yourself stopping in Union Square each morning before work. (Even though you live and work uptown.)
Bite into Maine
Some people say you haven’t had a lobster roll until you’ve had one from Maine. Those people are us, which is why we’re bringing Bite into Maine down to New York, so you can see what we mean.
Salt & Straw Handmade Ice Cream
This Portland-based ice cream shop is known for putting unusual things in ice cream (and really pulling it off). It was such a big hit at EEEEEATSCON LA, we decided everyone in NYC should try it too.
This Lower East Side coffee shop specializes in small Malaysian dishes, sweets, and making some of our favorite things to eat for breakfast.
Shanghai You Garden
This Flushing spot has some of NYC's absolute best soup dumplings, including a giant version where you drink the soup out of a straw.
We'd row up the Hudson to get to this Texas-style BBQ spot in Irvington, NY. Luckily, we don’t have to.
If we could only eat guacamole from one place for the rest of our lives, we would be very sad. We would also probably pick La Contenta to be that place, because it has some of the best Mexican food you can find in NYC and an 8.8 from The Infatuation.
This bakery slash Korean beauty store makes some of our favorite soft serve around, in flavors like green tea and ube. Yes, you're going to want to take a picture of it.
One of the East Village's quintessential late-night spots, Crif Dogs wraps their hot dogs in bacon and then tops them with a bunch of different things you didn’t know you needed on a hot dog. (But you do.)
LoLo's Seafood Shack
With a style that’s inspired by both the Carribean and New England, LoLo’s is a small Harlem counter-order shop that makes some seriously good seafood.
Originally a take-out counter at Baby’s All Right, Kichin now has its own space in Bushwick, with Korean and Japanese-influenced tapas, plus Korean fried chicken that’s so good you’ll call in sick to work the next day so you can go back as soon as they open.
