Displaced NYC foodies returning for quick fix - what are the new and amazing restaurants we must try?

  • 6

Hi All,

My partner and I are coming back to NYC for a visit in april after having been gone for a year, displaced to Switzerland. We love food and really enjoyed NYC restaurants in the years we lived there. We will surely go to some old favorites, but we really want to try some new and exciting places too!

Places we've loved *for guidance:
HIgh end - The Kitchen at Brooklyn Fare, Momofuku Ko, Corton
Mid range - Hakata Tonton, Kefi, Torrisi Italian Specialties
Low range - Kambi/Minka, Cascabel, Fette Sau

Any recommendations?
We're really looking for things at all price scales, just focused on the new! My only exclusion is against Fondue because we've had enough of it out here in swiss land :)

Thanks so much in advance!!

  1. On the upscale end, I strongly recommend Jung Sik, which is serving superb French-unfluenced Korean cuisine. We were just there for the second time. .

    On the higher end of mid-range, I would suggest North End Grill (via Danny Meyer and Chef Floyd Cardoz), and Chef Alain Allegretti's new place, La Promenade des Anglais.

      1. We really loved Boulud Sud, Daniel Boulud's new Mediterranean restaurant. It's near Lincoln Center.

        1. I definitely second RGR's recommendation of Jungsik above.

          Haven't been to North End Grill yet, but I hope to make my own way there soon.
