It’s not just the Mediterranean-Latin menu that will reel you into this West Village spot. It’s really the hand-painted-tile interiors. Your girlfriends will love sharing small plates from The Black Ant crew.

The entire town is buzzing about Ian Schrager’s new Edition Hotel (which took over that gorgeous Clocktower building on Madison Square Park). And now you can see and be seen there--thanks to the glossy new restaurant from Stephen Starr and the Michelin-starred British chef Jason Atherton.
5 Madison Ave. (at E. 24th St.); 212-413-4300 or theclocktowernyc.com
When your restaurant is named after your mom (or moms, in the case of these Locanda Verde and Per Se alums), you can expect something warm and cozy. This Alphabet City spot mixes comfort food and slight fanciness with its sweetbreads, duck breast, gnocchi, chocolate-beet cake and the like.
647 E. 11th St. (at Ave. B); 212-658-0152 or virginiasnyc.com
OK, technically this is a re-open. But it’s still damn exciting. Danny Meyer’s beloved Upper East Side joint has made its way downtown to the new Whitney--with Gramercy Tavern chef Michael Anthony in tow. Lichtenstein and lobster toast are the new peanut butter and jelly.
99 Gansevoort St. (at Washington St.); 212-570-3670 or untitledatthewhitney.com
Introducing your new go-to brunch spot. This Parisian brasserie just took over the Bowery Diner space--serving all your croque monsieur and pain au chocolat needs.

Mexican is having quite the moment right now in New York. (And it’s about freaking time.) Here’s yet another to add to your list--though this one’s more of a margaritas-with-a-side-of-tacos kind of place. (It’s housed atop a Hell’s Kitchen music venue.)
605 W. 48th St. (at 11th Ave.); 212-957-1700 or cantinarooftop.com
For a more chill (and traditional) Mexican dinner, head down to the East Village. Marc Meyer and Vicki Freeman (the duo behind Cookshop, Hundred Acres and Vic's) have taken over a large corner space--complete with breeze-enabling retractable walls and an exposed tortilla-making station smack-dab in the middle of the space.
You love food. It loves you (especially when lobster toast is involved).
And thankfully, New York is busting at the seams with new spots to help cultivate such a beautiful relationship.
Here are seven restaurant openings to keep on your radar this month.
