We recently moved back to the area from London. Before we moved, I had my finger on the pulse of the culinary scene in Manhattan and the boroughs, but after a couple of years away I feel like my knowledge is vastly dated. I know I could peruse the site and garner information to bring my knowledge back up to speed, but was wondering if any of you hard core Chowhounders could give me a concise overview of what's going on in the food scene now: what's hot? What's not? What's coming?
Thanks in advance for any and all information.
I think it would behoove you to go through the archives of Eater, specifically the "Year in Eater" roundups. As well as the NYT best restaurants lists from 2012, 2011, etc.
