A newcomer to Soho, Black Tap is cooking up stylish burgers in a retro diner-like space. The classic burger is great, but we’re more about “the Mexican”: a chorizo burger with jack cheese, pickled jalapeños and chipotle mayo. Followed by a decadently thick milkshake, of course.
529 Broome St. (at Sullivan St.); 917-639-3089 or blacktapnyc.com
The team behind Brooklyn?s Ganso Ramen recently opened a second, more casual spot specializing in Japanese street food. Think grilled trout on a cedar plank, miso-cured black cod and a savory cabbage-and-pork-belly pancake.
515 Atlantic Ave. (at Third Ave.), Brooklyn; 646-927-0303 or gansonyc.com
Danny Meyer’s restaurants have notoriously impressive wine and cocktail menus, but Porchlight is the restaurateur’s first stand-alone bar. The drinks are the stars, but menu items like beef jerky, boiled-peanut hummus and jalapeño corn bread play delicious supporting roles.
270 11th Ave. (between 27th and 28th sts.); 212-981-6188 or porchlightbar.com
Seamus Mullen’s new joint is a butcher by day and tapas spot by night. The Butchery offers a full menu all day (featuring traditional tapas like patatas bravas and croquetas). At night, the meat counter is cleared to make space for bar seating.

Having cut his teeth at Roberta?s, chef Angelo Romano is no pizza rookie. His new Kips Bay restaurant doesn?t disappoint, with menu items like The Marsala (thin crust topped with pancetta, onion and rosemary), and The Grandpa, (a thick, doughy slice with sausage, caramelized onion and garlic butter).
338 Third Ave. (at 25th St.); 212-889-1570 or rockyslims.com
There’s a time and a place for molecular gastronomy, but sometimes you just want a super-classic French dinner complete with frog legs, escargot and steak frites. For that--and a $2,000 bottle of Bordeaux--there’s this traditional new spot in Bed Stuy.

Located on the ground level of the W Hotel in Union Square, Irvington’s focus is on market-to-table fare, a rotisserie-menu and retro cocktails. Chef David Nichols is cooking up small plates, flatbreads, homemade pasta and dishes like the duck-confit potpie and lamb tartare with harissa and radishes.
201 Park Ave. (at 17th St.); 212-677-0425 or irvingtonnyc.com
