Top 10 Recent Dining Experiences

I am one of those pain in the neck posters who has no particular budget or preferences on what I want to eat when I next visit NYC, so I took this approach for my research. The places don't have to be new btw. Just any type of place (3 star to street food) that you just said to yourself, "damn this is good".

If you have less than 10 please list what you got. Much appreciated.

          A sidenote as they ended their pop up dinners, but once Mu Ramen gets their brick-and-mortar shop, I'd definitely go back for their Spicy Miso Ramen.
