NYC Fine Dining........

  • 9

I will be in NYC for my 31st time in December. I have been to most of the great restaurants in your fine city. Is there anything new that might be interesting. I have been to Daniel, Per Se, Babbo, Del Posto, Il Mulino, Aureole, Cafe Buloud, Jean Georges, Cafe Des Artiste, Gramercy Tavern, River Cafe, Sparks, Union Square Cafe, Gotham Bar and Grill, Felidia, Le Cirque, 11 Madison ParkBalthazar and Four Seasons.

What's a fine dining spot for Sunday night and also Sunday brunch. Thanks for your kind help.

  1. Alain Ducasse has a new place in NYC: Adour. Eleven Madison Park for dinner or brunch. L'atelier du Joel Robuchon.

    1. Picholine is not new, but has been revamped (both decor and menus) and just keeps getting better and better. L'Impero changed chefs within the last year, and is great. If you haven't tried Degustation, you should. Perilla also. Among the newest additions, I love Olana, Dovetail, Allen and Delancey, and Bar Blanc.

      1. If you haven't been to Craft, I'd add that to your fine dining list.

        1. Not new but noteworthy:
          La Grenouille
          Le Bernardin
          The Modern

          1. Interesting no one mention WD50 or Aquavit. Are they still good? Howabout Gordon Ramsey at London Bridge? Is it still hard to get a table?

              Hi Charles,

              Good call on Gordon Ramsay at the Londen Hotel. I will say it is definitely at the same caliber as the list of restaurants that the OP has listed. Since OP seem to be ok with formal fine dining, I think Ramsay will be a great choice. More more causal dining, I second the suggestion of L'Atelier de Joel Robuchon. Craft / Craftsteak will be great too.

            2. Just sat at the Chef's Table at Gordon Ramsey for lunch. I was anexcellent meal and a wonderful experience. You should call to check availability.

              1. I see that you've been to Sparks- if yopur a steak lover what about Peter Lugers?

                1. A colleague of mine just had dinner at Country in the Carlton Hotel. Geoffrey Zakarian's newer restaurant, I believe in the Carlton Hotel. Said it was phenomenal, blows the socks off of Eleven Madison Park. I also highly recommend Blue Hill.
