New Restaurant List Guide

Would anyone know how to get hold of a list of restaurants that are soon to be opened in the NYC area? Information that the public would not know for at least a month out.

Thank you!

  1. Apologies if you are already aware of these, but Eater's Plywood Reports, the NYT's Off the Menu column and NYMag's Grub Street are good sources. As for "(i)nformation that the public would not know," restaurants have to apply for liquor licenses, hire staff, etc., etc., etc. These things are public. There's no way to secretly open a restaurant (and no reason to, that I can think of).

      Thanks...exactly what i was looking for. I know there is no reason to keep a secret, but I wanted a jumpstart on the knowledge before an announcement in Time Out or NY Mag.

      Thanks again!

        You're welcome! But Grub Street *is* NYMag, so...that.
