Located right next to the MoMA, 53’s space is fittingly contemporary and objectively gorgeous. The main floor looks like a mini airport hanger designed by a Pritzker Prize-winning architect, and you’ll see sweeping curvy, rainbow-colored blades in the opulent downstairs room. Start your meal at this new restaurant from the Marea team with the flawlessly-made chicken and truffle soup dumplings. Once you try them, you’ll know you’re in for a night of impeccable food coming out of a very competent kitchen. Other dishes, like the terrific skate covered in sweet and spicy sambal and the unique mango pudding with greek yogurt ice cream, are influenced by Japanese, Korean, and various Southeast Asian cuisines. In a city with no shortage of high-end dining destinations, this stylish restaurant is one of your best options for an upscale dinner.
