A look at our updated list of the Big Apple's best
After much deliberation and gnashing of teeth, we're pleased to
release our revised and updated list of New
York's best restaurants. In total, we've covered over 800
restaurants spread out over five boroughs. No, we do not list every
restaurant, bodega and hot dog stand on every corner, but we've
carefully chosen and curated a list of what we consider the city's
very best independently owned restaurants.
As for the best of the best, we've also made considerable
changes to our
Top 100 New York restaurants. Restaurants cracking the Top 100
for the first time include 15 East, Danji,
Danny Brown Wine Bar & Kitchen, Dirt
Candy, Dressler, Fette Sau,
Grand Central Oyster Bar, Maialino, Mas
Seki and Wallse.
In addition to our reshaping of the Top 100, we've added hot new
restaurants, neighborhood favorites and beloved old haunts
throughout the city. Some of the new exciting spots we've
highlighted include Atera, Battersby,
Chinese Food and Pok Pok
Ny. Old (some ancient) classics we thought worthy of
recognition -- and still worth a visit -- include Arturo's,
Old Town Bar & Restaurant, Pete's
V&T Pizzeria and Restauraunt.
Of course, the best way to keep track of all these restaurants
while wandering about aimlessly in the city is to download LocalEats
for the iPhone, complete with GPS directions, restaurant
information, menus and more. Sure, it's possible to stumble into a
sub-par Broadway show while visiting New York. It's also
conceivable that you'll attend a lousy Yankees game (particularly
likely of late). But there truly is no excuse for eating poorly in
New York. Let us help.
