"The bar in the back of the Smyth hotel is a perfect place for both work and fun drinks. The two couches in front of the fire are the best seats in the winter."
Adam Rapoport, Editor-in-Chief, Bon Appétit
"Raccoon Lodge—where to go when you want your beer cheap and cold and your jukebox loud. Which is pretty much always, right?"
Linda Wells, Editor-in-Chief, Allure
"I love Locanda Verde—especially if you can get into the inner sanctum garden, which is restricted to Greenwich Hotel guests. It’s a secret haven. Even if you can’t, the restaurant feels like soulful Tribeca, not new gleaming steel Tribeca. They have the best frittata with goat cheese, roasted tomatoes, and zucchini blossoms—it’s fragrant and satisfying, but it’s usually just on the weekend brunch menu. I order it at business lunches, and they usually comply. Dinner at the bar is cozy—you have to lean in to hear your dinner companion, and there’s nothing wrong with that."
David Tamarkin, Editor, Epicurious.com
"I like Terroir because if I drink a lot of hard alcohol I fall asleep, and Terroir is a wine bar, so that works. Also, they have an insane olive oil cake. I don’t know what they do to it—probably just pour a gallon of olive oil into the batter—but it is impossibly rich and yet has a lightness at the same time. It’s crazy, delicious (and crazy delicious) stuff. I also like to have a drink at Baked, which is a bakery with beer and not anything like a bar at all. It’s a weird place to drink, but if you are like me—that is, you prefer a cake vice to a drinking vice 10 to 1—it’s perfect, because their chocolate bundt cake is to die."
"For lunch, I love Arcade Bakery. The pizza is crazy good. The sandwiches are also excellent—I like the eggplant number. Though both of these options leave me hungry two hours later. I also like Kitchenette, which is a kitschy spot that’s been around forever. It’s pretty basic, but it’s sunny (in front), you can get a big salad, and they have layer cakes. (Are you picking up on the theme of my life here?)"
Eric Gillin, Executive Director, Epicurious.com
"I'm totally in the tank for The Odeon restaurant. Maybe it's the Bright Lights, Big City connection or the fact it was in Saturday Night Live opening montages, but I always feel like I'm having a power lunch when I'm there, even though it's a total locals place now. Also, I love the fact it's virtually unchanged since the s when Warhol used to eat there, right down to the neon clock on the wall. And the cheeseburger is fantastic."
Chloe Malle, Social Editor, Vogue
"I love Racines for a drink or dinner after work; the whole menu is amazing, but I love ordering the bar food with one of their amazing wines by the glass. I am the opposite of an oenophile, so I always let the waiter decide for me! For lunch, now that the weather is better, nothing beats eating at Shake Shack on the river!"
As is the case every year, a lot of restaurants opened in We ate in many of them, including a Times Square steakhouse that caters to middle-aged hedge fund managers on the prowl, and an awful “roadside cafe” on the side of the road… in the middle of Little Italy.
But we also ate a lot of meals that were memorable for the right reasons – and the restaurants they took place in are the ones we’re ranking for your pleasure here. Among them are Indian restaurants and vegan restaurants and Korean restaurants (two, and there could easily have been a third), and also burgers and fish tacos and ramen. There’s no pizza or sushi, if anyone’s looking for a trend story or a talking point for Christmas dinner.
Ultimately, was a good year for eating in New York City, at least if you made it to these places. And if you haven’t, time to make a resolution.
Many of the restaurants listed here are what we’d call indie hits – little places that, even with smaller budgets, are putting out Oscar-worthy food. That’s not The Clocktower. The Clocktower is the year’s blockbuster hit, except it doesn’t suck. The vaguely British restaurant on the second floor of The Edition Hotel overlooking Madison Square Park goes big on the production value, big on the service, and big on the food. It’s not the underdog of the bunch, but we all like a big explosion now and again.
Over the past decade, several restaurants have taken a “modern” spin on Korean food, most famously Momofuku, just a few blocks over from Oiji. But Oiji is doing its own thing, and it’s doing it in a more composed and serious manner. That “thing” involves an intricate-looking beef tartare, an incredibly good fried chicken dish, and very sweet potato chips for dessert. That’s what we call innovation.
The bagel and smoked salmon, an essential New York food group, doesn’t need much improving. But that’s not what Sadelle’s is really about anyway. This place is about $20 French toast so good we don’t even balk at the price, and it’s about a guy who yells “hot bagels” every time there are hot bagels. By the way, when that salmon does come out, it’s on a tower. Making Jewish appetizing sexy seemed like a ridiculous concept, but now that we’re here, there’s no going back.
When we first had dinner at Her Name Is Han, it felt like discovering MGMT in What we mean to say is that it felt like we’d struck gold, and immediately couldn’t wait to bring all of our friends back to this spot just a block off Koreatown’s main drag. The food is “homestyle” Korean, which means everything from spicy pork to rice cakes to a big bubbling seafood stew, all served in a space that looks like it could be both a movie set and a library. Order some homemade soju and settle in to your new favorite restaurant in the 30s.
The concept of Seamore’s is simple: take freshly caught seafood, let people consume that seafood in a few different ways of varying healthiness, and let them do it in a bright, attractive space. We never thought we’d be so excited about eating a grilled fish over salad in Nolita, but here we are.
That said, if you are going to eat a veggie burger, make it at By CHLOE. This vegan fast-casual spot on Macdougal is changing the game, and the constant lines around the block are a clear sign that reasonably priced, tasty, non-meat food that you can eat in your workout clothes is what the people want. They’re expanding in a big way next year, and honestly, there’s probably going to be one of these in every mall in America by the end of the decade. Get your Hot Topic t-shirt, then grab your veggie burger, and welcome to the future.
Houseman is what we like to call an adult restaurant. Not an old person’s restaurant. But an adult restaurant. If Houseman were a person, it would own some beautiful sweaters. It would have two well-behaved and well-dressed children. Houseman would own a cool cabin upstate. What does this mean, considering Houseman is not a human, but actually a restaurant on the far west side of Soho? It means they cook great food, driven by what’s in season rather than what’s on Instagram, in an understated but beautifully designed space. This is the neighborhood restaurant you want in your neighborhood. Also, their burger – two thin patties, topped with cheese and caramelized onions, on a potato bun – is one of the new greats.
On an almost hourly basis, we get asked: “What’s a restaurant downtown where I can grab a drink and some great food with a friend? Also, we’re meeting in an hour, and we don’t want to wait.” That restaurant is Dante. Dante is the old Caffe Dante on Macdougal Street, reinvented by some Australians as a bar/restaurant serving great cocktails and food. The menu is eclectic, but works whether you just want to grab a snack or a full dinner. Get some burrata or prosciutto and figs while you sip on a Negroni (they have a whole menu of them), or go for the ingenious creation that is “Vongole Soup,” which could best be described as a blend of spaghetti vongole and ramen.
La Contenta gets our vote for best new general under-the-radar hangout. There’s a good chance you haven’t heard much about this Lower East Side Mexican spot, and that’s because it’s a true neighborhood hang. Come for cocktails and tacos, stay for the conversation you’ll probably get into with the bartender.
A lot of the new restaurants this year are all about being “light,” whether that means small plates or fish or vegan food. Not the case at Virginia’s. Over in the far east East Village, Virginia’s is serving duck rillettes and risotto and an absolutely incredible burger. Next time you need to blow off some steam and not worry about what your cholesterol is probably going to look like in a few years, you need to do it at Virginia’s.
Wildair is the sibling restaurant attached to Contra, a restaurant we like very much. This new spot is a wine bar focused on small plates, and devoid of much of the adventurous technicality on display next door. It might not have the highest rating on this list, but it earned its spot here for being something that NYC doesn’t have much of: A fun wine bar with great food that feels like a night in Paris. That said, the food isn’t for everyone. Leave your picky-eating, White Zinfandel drinking friend behind.
10 Best Restaurants to Take for a Spin in TriBeCa

Simply put, Frenchette is one of the hottest restaurants in NYC at the moment, which may make getting in a tad bit difficult. If you do happen to score a coveted res, however, prepare for a unique, upscale French feast. Starters include standouts like the veal tongue and mackerel, while entrees feature everything from duck frites to cote de boeuf to a whole fish with fingerlings and charred lemon. The cocktails and drink menu are similarly chic and include three different kind of spritzes and the Frenchette swizzle, a concoction of rum, Armagnac, pineapple and absinthe. One thing to keep in mind: the space can be loud, so go prepared to raise your voice if you're hoping to have a conversation.
Recommended for TriBeCa's Best Restaurants because: Frenchette has turned upscale French food into a bit of a foodie spectacle - in the best possible way.
Andrea's expert tip: It may be easier to get in at brunch and you'll still get a great showing of Frenchette's best offerings, such as the oysters and homard a la broche, a half rotisserie lobster with curry beurre fondue.

The sister restaurant to Takahachi in the East Village, the Tribeca outpost is a heralded by regulars for being casual and down-to-earth in a sea of Tribeca pomp and circumstance. Not only is the sushi here relatively affordable, but it's also high-quality and incredibly fresh. Unlike many other sushi restaurants, the non-sushi dishes also earn their spot at the table. Regulars rave about the green tea crepe cake, udon and shrimp dumplings. While you'll likely wait for a table at dinner, the lunch specials are worthy of their own praise: for under $20, you get an entree, soup, salad and two rotating sides.
Recommended for TriBeCa's Best Restaurants because: It's a fantastic casual sushi option that doesn't leave your wallet high and dry.
Andrea's expert tip: Go for lunch and cash in on the daily specials. The "sushi mixed" is an especially good steal that includes 4 pieces of sushi, your choice of roll, soup, salad and rice for $

When you say the words Tribeca and Indian food, Benares isn't the first place that pops into people's mindsbut it should be. Though not as glitzy as Tamarind, the other Indian spot on this list, the food is every bit as good. The robust menu is almost overwhelming, and you certainly won't go wrong asking your server or the manager to choose for you. That said, don't skip the butter chicken or the saag paneer, both stand-out options that deserve your attention. The oversized tandoori prawns also don't disappoint, nor does the Atom Bomb, a gluten-free chocolate lava cake topped with rose petal ice cream.
Recommended for TriBeCa's Best Restaurants because: It's a knock-out Indian restaurant that gets overshadowed by others in the neighborhood.
Andrea's expert tip: The prix fixe lunch or buffet is a good way to fill up for less than $ The restaurant recently added a weekend brunch with unlimited mimosas and a free round of vodka shooters.

Korean barbecue has taken NYC by storm in recent years and those looking to satisfy their craving would do well at Gunbae. The menu features the cuts you'd expect, including ribeye, brisket, pork belly, filet and wagyu. If you're coming with at least 2 or 3 friends, the BBQ combo is the way to go with the banchan, egg hot pot, ssamjang, kimchi jjigae and fried dumplings, plus a collection of the aforementioned meat options. Vegetarian and gluten-free diners won't go hungry here either, making Gunbae somewhat of an anomaly. Post-dinner, slink to the basement, order a round of specialty Korean beer or soju and dust off your vocal cords with some hard-hitting karaoke.
Recommended for TriBeCa's Best Restaurants because: Korean BBQ and karaoke in one location have all the ingredients for a great evening.
Andrea's expert tip: Consider getting a karaoke package deal, which includes drinks in addition to a private room.

An institution in the TriBeCa dining scene, Bubby's is synonymous with brunch. It makes sense that it'd be known for sweet stuff considering this neighborhood mainstay set up shop in as a pie company. Years later and it's expanded to both the High Line and Japan (random, yeah?) to pedal its delicious fare to the masses. Brunch is served from PM on Saturdays and Sundays and features classics like pancakes, flaky buttermilk biscuits and large format breakfast plates, such as huevos rancheros. Dinner is more stick-to-your-bones fare with starters that include mac n' cheese balls and nachos and mains like bacon-wrapped meatloaf.
Recommended for TriBeCa's Best Restaurants because: Bubby's is a neighborhood staple that encourages you to stuff your face in the early morning hours.
Andrea's expert tip: Cash only. Plan accordingly and stop at the Citibank ATM one block over on Hudson between Moore and Beach.

There's been an invasion of Australian cafes hitting NYC in recent years, but given the Aussie's dedication to coffee, no one is complaining. Two Hands falls squarely into this happy place. With three outposts (the other ones are in Nolita and Williamsburg), this spot is open every day except for Christmas and Thanksgiving, giving you plenty of chances to give them a try. When you arrive, opt for one of the expertly crafted espresso drinks and a bite from the curated breakfast menu, which features (what else?) avocado toast, housemade granola and a smattering of plates and bowls filled with healthy, eggy goodness.
Recommended for TriBeCa's Best Restaurants because: If there's one thing Australians do right, it's coffee. Two Hands is proof that there's nowhere better to get your cup of joe in Tribeca.
Andrea's expert tip: Come for the coffee, stay for the brunch, complete with an Aussie classic: avo toast.

With quotes from Hunter S. Thompson on the menu, you can tell this cocktail bar-restaurant doesn't take itself too seriously, though what's coming out of the kitchen and from behind the bar is still worthy of neighborhood praise. Opened by a former Employees Only founder, Belle Reve delivers on the classics with a twist. Expect live music and American staples: raw steak with Worcestershire chips, Big Easy BBQ shrimp, and a veg-grain menu that will have the token vegan in your crew satisfied with the selection. As for libations, you can't go wrong with house specials like The Grandpa, a concoction of dark rum, orgeat, Cointreau and Prosecco, finished off with bitters.
Recommended for TriBeCa's Best Restaurants because: Belle Reve doesn't compromise good, old-fashioned fun for modern, delicious food. To sum it up, it's a party.
Andrea's expert tip: Brunch is bottomless for $20, which means this is where you should go if you're looking for a little rowdy with your weekend eggs.

Set in a corner art deco building, Tamarind's TriBeCa branch oozes opulence. From the white tablecloths to the window-walled bars, this isn't your typical Indian restaurant. A tandoor kitchen shares space with the bi-level dining area, where waiters scurry up steps to deliver dishes that draw influence from all areas of India. Raj-Kachori, a chickpea flour patty and specialty from Calcutta, may pave the way for a Goan favorite: prawns in coconut sauce with mustard seed, cumin and curry leaves. While this spot did lose its Michelin star in , regulars say the food and service are still top-notch. We don't hesitate to recommend you visit.
Recommended for TriBeCa's Best Restaurants because: For a high-end Indian dinner in the 'hood, Tamarind stands alone.
Andrea's expert tip: Go for Restaurant Week when the menu is a fraction of the cost, but leave the kids at home. Tamarind has a strict 6-year-old+ policy.

Tucked into TriBeCa, Locanda Verde has been delighting Italian food lovers since it opened its doors in Rustic ease is prevalent in the decor and the menu, which features casual basics like sheep's milk ricotta with sea salt and herbs on chunks of wood-fired peasant bread, to lamb meatball sliders, to squid ink linguini with Manila clams, soppressata, garlic and shishito peppers. The vibe here - along with the crowd - is downtown cool, the high-heeled fashionistas and established young professionals clinking glasses of vino against a brick-walled backdrop. An Italian taverna dropped into a New York postcard, this Italian joint is worth every penny.
Recommended for TriBeCa's Best Restaurants because: Locanda Verde is everything we love about New York paired up with everything that makes Italy irresistible.
Andrea's expert tip: Regulars say reservations do more for diners (like increasing the friendliness of the staff) than simply securing a table.

Maman reminds you of the demure French girl with a beautiful accent and a shy smile. It's the decor that gets your first - understated and quaint, it's perfect for a lazy Saturday morning or a leisurely weekday lunch. The food is locally sourced and draws inspiration from France with breakfast staples like a pastry basket and the croque "maman" with ham, cheese and béchamel sauce. Snuggle up with a cutie on one of the back couches. Or, if you're in a hurry, the cafe is open earlier for coffee, croissants and flaky quiches that are somehow rich and flaky, all at once.
Recommended for TriBeCa's Best Restaurants because: It's a cute piece of France tucked into Tribeca - but unlike Paris, it's family friendly.
Andrea's expert tip: The front counter is open weekdays at 7 AM, so early birds can grab a cup of coffee and a pastry before the city comes alive.

As it's the start of the new year, we here at Eater felt it was time for a bigger update than usual. So here's the new Eater 38, fresh for , with 10 new additions.
Rather than a stage-4 meltdown over our having excluded your favorite restaurant from the list, wouldn't it be more productive to just nominate it for inclusion?

Here Are the Michelin Stars for New York City
Who’s he waving at? Photo: Joel Saget/AFP/Getty Images
The little red guidebook announced its “Bib Gourmand” picks for New York City last week, and this afternoon Michelin published its collection of starred restaurants for its guide. Most notably, Daniel Boulud’s flagship lost a star — it now has two instead of three — while Brooklyn’s River Café, which was decimated by Hurricane Sandy, is now back on the list. The surprises include Patti Jackson’s Delaware and Hudson, the sleepy Carroll Gardens restaurant Take Root, and Pok Pok Ny. The full list is straight ahead.
Chef’s Table at Brooklyn Fare
Eleven Madison Park
Danny Brown Wine Bar & Kitchen
Delaware and Hudson
Gotham Bar and Grill
The Musket Room
M. Wells Steakhouse
Pok Pok Ny
The River Café
Sushi of Gari
Torrisi Italian Specialities
ZZ’s Clam Bar
So, what are the most notable trends, shifts, and notes of New York’s Michelin star system since last year’s ratings were released?
• Daniel lost a star. Michael Ellis, who serves as international director for Michelin, explained the downgrade to Bloomberg’s Richard Vines. “Daniel Boulud is a great chef and he’s got a wildly popular restaurant. But we’ve been following him closely and he hasn’t been consistently delivering food at the three-star level,” he said. It seems like the issues may be more complex than that, however.
• Blanca scored a huge win. Carlo Mirachi’s tasting menu-based Blanca bumped up to two stars, from one, making it the only Brooklyn restaurant in the two-star range.
• Brooklyn made a strong showing otherwise. Patti Jackson’s five-month-old Delaware and Hudson, which specializes in mid-Atlantic roots food, nabbed a star, as did Pok Pok Ny, La Vara, Luksus, and Take Root.
• Several restaurants lost their stars altogether. Most notably, Hooni Kim’s Danji and Anita Lo’s Annisa lost their stars. Tamarind Tribeca and Sichuan specialist Lan Sheng did as well. And both A Voce Columbus and A Voce Madison, which remained in the guide last year after chef Missy Robbins left the restaurant group, have now been taken off the list.
• The guide said goodbye to some great places.Aska and Le Restaurant, which closed, no longer appear among the guide’s rankings, while Wylie Dufresne’s wd~50 has lost its star because it too will close. Rouge Tomate, which shuttered in August and has yet to announce the address of its new home, was presumably dropped for the same reason.

Tribeca Grill is a New American restaurant located at Greenwich Street (at Franklin Street) in Tribeca, Manhattan, in New York City, co-owned by Robert De Niro and Drew Nieporent. Celebrity investors include Bill Murray, Sean Penn, Christopher Walken, Ed Harris, and Lou Diamond Phillips, among others. It opened in  The Executive Chef is Brenton Lee. The large mahogany bar in the center of the restaurant is from the former Maxwell's Plum restaurant.
Restaurateur Drew Nieporent had opened a restaurant in Tribeca in called Montrachet, naming it after the Burgundy wine region. The actor Robert De Niro, who was a regular customer at Montrachet, is quoted as saying “I always thought of having a restaurant — a place where people could meet and talk. Drew had Montrachet a few blocks away, and I said, well, let me ask Drew if he wants to do it.” 
The restaurant was designed by architect Lo-Yi Chan. It is housed in the building that was once the home of Martinson Coffee, and now houses the Tribeca Film Center. It is a central gathering place during the annual Tribeca Film Festival. Large paintings on the wall are original paintings from Robert DeNiro Sr. A interior renovation included the addition of large lighting fixtures by the architect David Rockwell.
The à la carte menu at Tribeca Grill changes on a seasonal basis, and on the basis of available ingredients. Some menu items have remained on the menu since the restaurant opened in

Realizing that they would not fix obstacles to him, he parted her buttocks and licked her washed up anus. The asterisk shrank from the unexpected touch, but immediately straightened out, forming a small fossa. Then he plunged his tongue into this depression, and began to push it through the tight ring.
