Looking for New American Cuisine restaurant for early January

Hi, I am looking for a New American Cuisine restaurant, sort of like Zuni in San Francisco. Do you have any recommendations? Thanks.

  1. Can you describe a little bit more about what you're looking for, for people unfamiliar with Zuni in SF?

    What do you mean by "sort of" like Zuni? What aspects do you seek, regarding service, atmosphere, price?

    Are you looking for something like Mas or ABC Kitchen?

    What's your budget for food only, and do you have a preferred neighborhood?

    1. That's an overly broad category. For example, Momofuku claims to serve "delicious American food", and I pretty much agree with the label—but that's another discussion. Joseph Leonard in the West Village is a place I've been to recently and was pleased by that could easily fit in your category.

      Joseph Leonard
      170 Waverly Pl, New York, NY 10014

      1. Try the Five Points/Cookshop/Hundred Acres restaurants. They're all under the same owner and all pretty good. I wouldn't say that any one of them is better in terms of quality or focus than Zuni, though.

        some time ago, i had just returned from SF and posted this:

        156 10th Avenue, New York, NY 10011

        Five Points
        31 Great Jones St, New York, NY 10012

        Hundred Acres
