Dear Hannah: A Restaurant Advice Column
All of your hyper-specific NYC dining questions, answered.

All my life, I have been pegged as a “soft skills” person. Which is a polite way of identifying that I’m not proficient in trigonometry or swimming away from sharks. The truth is, my skills extend no further than matters of the heart and the stomach - romance, friendship, choosing a restaurant, eating, and roasting the occasional chicken. This can be credited in part to years of watching Flavor Of Love, Room Raiders, and NEXT, working at The Infatuation, and simply being a child of divorce.

I’m here to fuse my emotional intelligence with tailored restaurant recommendations, all in hopes of helping you navigate New York City’s eating and drinking conundrums. Whether you want to order takeout for your roommate who’s moving out because she hates you, celebrate a birthday with your precocious 8-year-old son, or just get your hands on a gargantuan prosciutto sandwich, I’m here to assist.

Between remembering how to socialize and more sweat than you realized your body was capable of producing, summer 2021 has felt like seven summers in one. Our reader question this month is all about how to impress someone who grew up in NYC. Read on for ideas on where to go to have a dining experience - at a range of price tiers - you’ll probably talk about five years from now at a party.

If you have a hyper-specific question you want to ask in regards to your 7,000 other dining-based anxieties, go ahead. Email nyc@theinfatuation.com. You might appear in our next NYC dining advice column.
