Manhatta

Another gem from the restaurant genius of Danny Meyer and the amazing folks over at the Union Square Hospitality Group. This time on the 60th floor of a Downtown Manhattan skyscraper (in the very-happening Financial District), this restaurant will wow you with views for days and dishes to remember. Buttery escargot paired with pork sausage, foie gras on a bed of duck rillette, squash & cherries, and mushroom bone-marrow scallops - are just a few of the amazing divine inventions (& interventions) you will find on this swanky prix fixe menu. Make sure to pop into the Bay Room for a drink on days you are not dining at the exquisite establishment or before/after the fact.

Ribalta

The infamous Italian restaurateur Rosario Procino and his best-selling partner chef Pasquale Cozzolino (author of The Pizza Diet) bring you authentic Napoli not only through food, drinks, and spirit - but in truly creating an genuine Italian community in the heart of Manhattan. Soccer matches streaming on a huge projector wall, three ovens firing up pizzas almost indistinct from ones you'd order in Napoli itself, and Negronis flow like the Neapolitan songs a loyal group of regulars sing on Friday nights. A mecca for soccer, Napoli, Italy, and all things that make Italy great. An absolutely MUST for anyone visiting NYC - even if from Italy or especially if so!

Augustine

From the creator of the famed Balthazar - Keith McNally - comes a fusion of old Pastis spirit, Balthazar chaos, and late-night Minetta approach. Enjoy this brasserie and make sure to wander over to the Beekman hotel next door for a drink afterward.

La Esquina

Step into the hidden world of tacos and tequila-inspired drinks. This Soho classic known for celebrity sightings and one of the toughest NYC doors is a hot Sunday item. Order the tortilla soup - prepare to be amazed.

ABC Kitchen

Another exquisite Jean-George classic sports not only a Micheline star - but two entrances and a modern living room look & feel. We love all things Jean-George and can’t speak enough good things about ABC. This is an absolute NYC must.

Casa Lever

Didn’t make it to Moma before it closed - don’t worry. The gentleman who owns this classy “joint” also happens to own the largest private Warhol collection in the world and rotates many of his pieces around the restaurant. Food choice is just as exquisite as the art. Nothing we wouldn’t recommend off of the grand menu.

Indochine

Step into NYC’s party history with Indochine’s revival of Andy Warhol, Nylon, and all things cool. This is some of the early Asian fusion we knew in our bustling city and where social was coined before network was.

Mamo

Tucked away in a beautiful West Broadway brownstone across from Soho Grand Hotel. The Antibes little sister is quiet, tasteful, and has a great vibe. Much recommended spot on a snowy winter night.
