Oysters! Schnitzel! Vegemite!

Tucked inside the Duane Street Hotel, this new restaurant is setting out to prove that ugly veggies can be delicious, too. By focusing on produce that has aesthetic flaws, Graffiti Earth is striving to reduce food waste. Hey, that oyster guacamole looks pretty darn gorgeous to us.

The menu at the Pierre Hotel’s new upscale restaurant is definitely classy--but “classy” doesn’t have to mean “boring.” We’re eyeing the beef carpaccio flatbread with herb mayo and crispy capers.

Schnitzel and spätzle, anyone? This new restaurant by the folks that brought you Edi & the Wolf is bringing traditional Austrian fare (and tasty German beer) to the Financial District. We’ll drink to that.

This Mediterranean gem inside the Hotel Rivington is the next best thing to a trip to the Greek Isles. Oh, and there’s peach burrata.
