10 Brand-New NYC Restaurants You Have to Try
Including a spot just for bone broth
Pssst: We know you’re super busy planning beach trips for the summer, but don’t forget to reserve tables at these amazing new NYC restaurants. By the time everyone else in the city discovers them, you’ll already be a regular.
You can order diner classics like fried chicken, short rib stroganoff and pork steak at this new Greenpoint joint, but the elevated, creative dishes are nothing like you’d get at a traditional greasy spoon. Don’t leave without trying the deviled egg dip.

The city is packed with amazing places to eat, but there’s always been a weird food drought in the center of Times Square (blame it on the fake Elmos scaring people away). Now you can pop over to the new sushi spot Izi before you see Hamilton and feast on poké. Yesss!

After a scary gas explosion shut down the old East Village location, the beloved French fry spot is back in business at a new location in the West Village. To celebrate, we’ll take a double order with Vietnamese pineapple mayo, please.

Oooo, an impeccably designed Nordic restaurant by Claus Meyer has opened in Grand Central Terminal. You might be tempted to cancel your trip and spend the evening eating cod with potatoes and fennel instead.

SUSHI GINZA ONODERA
We’re suckers for pretty sushi, so we’re psyched this high-end Japanese chain has set up shop in Manhattan. It’s bound to be popular and the place is pretty small, so make reservations now.

Hey, it was only a matter of time before a bone broth restaurant opened in NYC. There’s even a smoked-pork breakfast broth that’s poured over a raw egg.
90 W. Third St. (at Sullivan St.); 646-368-9192 or springbone.com
Guys. This new Mexican street-food restaurant in Harlem is co-owned by Alex Trebek’s son, Matthew. We’ll take tacos for $4, Matthew.

PN WOOD FIRED PIZZA
Remember when Kramer had that idea for a pizzeria where you make your own pie? It’s finally become a reality in NYC. Choose your dough, sauce and a variety of toppings and they’ll make it right in front of you.
2 W. 28th St. (at Fifth Ave.); 844-874-5864
Named after Cebu City, the “second city” of the Philippines, this casual Village hangout is perfect for a late-night snack. And if you order the crispy fried pork belly bao buns with scallions and pickles, you get two late-night snacks, so you win.
545 Hudson St. (at Charles St.); 917-639-3262 or 2ndcityusa.com
Oooh, a now-shuttered Polish butcher shop has been transformed into a new Greenpoint hangout by Julian Calcott, the former executive sous chef of the Spotted Pig. Yeah, we think we're gonna get the burger.
