Whenever Team Torrisi opens a restaurant, we pay attention. (See: Dirty French, Carbone, Parm.) Santina is its new, seafood-heavy restaurant nestled under the High Line. The lamb-and-mussels pasta is all anyone can talk about.
820 Washington St. (at Gansevoort St.); 212-254-3000 or santinanyc.com
In more seafood news, East Hampton favorite Bay Kitchen Bar just settled into a second outpost, on the Upper East Side. Like the original, expect all East Coast catches to be served raw, braised, fried or, you know, slathered across a butter roll.
321 E. 73rd St. (at Second Ave.); 212-861-1038 or bkbrestaurant.com
Simplicity reigns supreme at this West Village spot. The health-conscious menu includes the likes of wedge salads with chia seeds, Alaskan salmon over spaghetti squash and cauliflower steaks (and heavens to Chris Christie, you know we love cauliflower).
10 Downing St. (at Sixth Ave.); 212-675-4350 or cafeclovernyc.com
Instagram-beloved bakery Maman Café (the one that hosts those monthly fondue dinners) has branched out with a second concept: a rotisserie-chicken takeout counter around the corner. But it’s no average bird. This one’s cooked up by a Michelin-starred chef.

Keeping in the French culinary tradition is this L.E.S. Mexican spot. (Yep, you heard that right.) The chef is personally Latino and classically trained. Think: Enchiladas with ratatouille on the side.
102 Norfolk St. (at Rivington St.); 212-432-4180 or lacontentanyc.com
Famed cookbook author Maria Loi (“the Martha Stewart of Greece,” if you will) has a new upscale Midtown restaurant for all your grilled octopus needs.
132 W. 58th St. (at Sixth Ave.); 212-713-0015 or loiestiatorio.com
Turns out we lied. There are seven spots you should check out. Sliding in as a latecomer to our own personal-eats list is Hunt & Fish Club, a far cooler option for Midtown steaks. (You'll feel chicer just by sitting underneath this massive chandelier.)

Hey you, the food lover. (So, everyone.) Let’s have a chat.
