Ruby’s is an Australian cafe, but it’s useful for a lot more than a flat white from a barista wearing a beanie and a baggy T-shirt with partially rolled-up sleeves. The Kips Bay space (which has more seating than the constantly packed Nolita location) works for a breakfast bowl after 9am kickboxing, a smoked salmon salad during a casual lunch meeting, or burgers and wine with friends before a night out.

Dudley's is more about the hang than it is a memorable meal. Go in with the right expectations and you’ll be glad it’s there.
The Musket Room
Interesting flavor and texture combinations litter a menu of impressive hits at The Musket Room. It’s an unassuming restaurant, but one that prides itself on excellent service and a serious Kiwi heavy wine program. Pleasant surprises all around.
