Fish Cheeks

Seafood is the focus at this family-style Thai spot, and we can’t wait to dive into crispy garlic branzino and coconut-crab curry. (A word of warning: They don’t mess around with spice.) 

55 Bond St. (between Lafayette St. and Bowery); 212-677-2223 or

Nothing makes us happier than when a beloved, bygone NYC spot rises again, so we're practically giddy that the folks behind Sushi Nakazawa have resurrected the historic speakeasy. We've always wanted to nosh on beef tartare and chipotle hamachi crudo in a 1920s literary salon.

Matte Bento

An all-day Japanese bodega is definitely something we needed in our lives. Stop in for smoked-salmon chirashi, sweet-garlic fried-chicken sandwiches and vanilla soft-serve topped with matcha powder.

Mister Dips

Burgers, waffle fries and ice cream served from an Airstream trailer? Don’t mind if we do. We’ll take a “Jacker-Crax” cone with salted peanuts and buttered caramel popcorn, please.

We love a good neighborhood coffee shop. Especially when it has sticky buns and breakfast empanadas made by a Michelin-starred pastry chef. Yep, we pretty much plan on living here all winter.

Can’t swing an island vacay this year? Pop into this Bushwick spot for instant tropical vibes and Caribbean-inspired eats like a charred avocado shrimp salad and smoked short ribs. (Oh, and a gorgeous patio that we fully intend to make use of six months from now.) 

195 Wyckoff Ave. (at Harman Ave.), Brooklyn; 347-425-0888 or

Michael Tulipan/Roundhouse


This pint-size kiosk in Balsley Park serves up Asian-Mexican street fare, like short rib tacos with avocado crema and miso-chile octopus bowls. There’s outdoor seating for the warmer months and delivery for the colder ones.

La Newyorkina

We’re beyond excited that one of our favorite food-on-a-stick slingers finally has a brick-and-mortar shop. And if mountains of paletas weren’t enough of a draw, you can also try the brand-new ice cream in flavors like tres leches and mole.

240 Sullivan St. (at W. Third St.); 917-669-4591 or

Pasta on Demand

It’s like someone’s been reading our mind: Chef Michael White and company just launched this partnership with UberEATS, so now you don’t have to leave your house to get gnocchetti with roasted butternut squash and kale pesto and cinnamon-sugar bomboloni.

Looking to splurge for a special occasion? Dinner becomes an art form at this luxe Japanese spot, which specializes in omakase kappo, a seasonally driven chef’s tasting menu featuring dishes like purple uni with ikura and Miyazaki beef (a type of wagyu) with seaweed salt.

Los Mariscos

When the place with the best tacos in NYC opens a new restaurant, you pay attention. You won’t find any pork adobada here, though: It’s all about fish tacos, shrimp cócteles, ceviche and other undersea delights.

409 W. 15th St. (at Ninth Ave.); 212-920-4986 or

Bob's Steak & Chop House

Bob's Steak & Chop House

Colder weather brings out the carnivore in us, so it’s perfect timing that the Dallas-based steakhouse is opening its first NYC outpost on November 1. Bring us a prime filet mignon and one of those signature glazed carrots, stat.

19 E. 52nd St. (between Fifth and Madison aves.); 212-754-5011 or

Few things give us more joy than pizza and wine, so this Bushwick newcomer already has the keys to our heart. The fact that the pies are made with a wild-yeast (aka sourdough) crust is almost too much to handle.
