We know you’re on the edge of your seats, so we’ll just tell you now: 12 Chairs does, in fact, have more than twelve chairs. In fact, it’s a good-sized space that’s never too cramped or busy. And between its breakfast all day, traditional Middle Eastern dishes, sandwiches, salads, and some pierorgies and schnitzels for good measure, 12 Chairs’ menu has something for everyone. Even your complain-iest friends will have a hard time complaining about the fact that there isn’t a single item over $20.

The Woo is a two-story Korean barbecue spot in Soho. It’s a little pricier than average, but the beef is great, and it isn’t hard to get into.
JIMMY at The James
Jimmy is the rooftop bar at The James in Soho, and it’s a good place to find attractive people hanging by a very small pool.

Venisalvi is a wine bar and cafe that feels like a neighborhood spot, despite being on 38th street in Midtown.
Barbounia is definitely not our jam. It’s way too expensive for what they’re serving, and the grandiose and gaudy decor makes it feel like some sort of vaguely Mediterranean performance hall. Like at any moment one of the bus boys might start juggling.

Jack's Wife Freda
A good spot for your weekend brunch rotation, but don't rely on it for dinner. Jack's Wife Freda does not get better when the sun goes down.
Little Prince needs a lot of fine tuning. We really wanted to love this place. But don’t hire a bunch of waiters just because they look cool, and don’t fail on technique when you’re serving French food.
