Located in the East Village, Chef David Chang's latest, two-Michelin-star eatery is not easy to get into. Avant garde in its approach to fine dining, Ko only accepts reservations via its website and up to a week in advance. (From the pool of reservations, 12 diners are randomly selected to be seated at the restaurant's bare-bones Japanese dining bar each evening.) As minimalist as Ko's sparse décor is its single-item menu: a 10-course omakase meal served at the set price of $125. The lunch menu is 16 courses.

Insider Tip:

Daily reservations are taken online each morning beginning at 10 a.m. and gone within seconds. Hover over your keyboard, though, and you may get in. Cancellations occur throughout the day.
