Restaurants in New York City

The atmosphere of this Sardinian enoteca in downtown Williamsburg breathes cozy, old-world rusticity with aged hardwood floors, woodblock tables, brass finishings, tapered candles, a tin-paneled ceiling, and cushioned banquettes.

This Midtown New York City espresso bar, owned by Swede Anastasio Nougos, serves Danesi coffee that is reminiscent of the best European incarnations of the popular beverage. Zibetto features a starkly modern interior with a white-tiled bar and mirrored walls.

Out in Williamsburg, Motorino’s owner, Mathieu Palombino, brings a serious résumé to the dough game. After working under culinary stars David Bouley and Laurent Tourondel, he shifted from Gallic to garlic and olive oil while learning to bake pizza certified by Verace Pizza Napoletana Americas.

Culinary moguls Mario Batali and Joe Bastianich bring high-end glamour to the Meatpacking District with Del Posto, a 24,000-square-foot Italian restaurant.

Situated on 5th Avenue in the historic and affluent Upper East Side, Le Caprice is the stateside cousin of a famous brasserie in London with the same name.

Serving an extensive menu of pan-Asian fare, this cash-only restaurant is housed inside two adjacent storefronts in the Park Slope neighborhood.

 

What would you get if you took a bunch of disparate elements of what makes eating in this city great and packed them into one tight space? Something like Ed Schoenfeld and Joe Ng’s lively New Yorkified Chinese spot, RedFarm.

Located on the corner of Carmine and Bedford Streets in the West Village, this airy restaurant has large windows to take in passers-by. Exposed brick walls, vaulted ceilings, and an open kitchen mark the interior.

This loud and dark stylized place with its ornate cocktails, Rat Pack-style red leather booths, and electronica soundtrack might look like yet another faux-Asian downtown boîte. Then you tuck into the dim sum and realize that you haven’t eaten like this since your last trip to Hong Kong.

This farmhouse-inspired restaurant in Prospect Heights brings a distinct countryside spirit to the city with displayed farm equipment, 19th-century portraits, empty bell jars, and filament bulbs inside a long, black and white dining room with high ceilings.

The seasonal menu at A Voce in the Flatiron district focuses on rustic Italian dishes and fresh ingredients. The meat ravioli, a family recipe, is made with pork, beef, and veal and served with chunky tomato sauce and flakes of Parmesan.
