4/Acme
5/Kosaka
6/Bruno
7/Wildair
8/Babu Ji
9/Soothsayer
10/Shabu Shabu

1/Momofuku Nishi
Because the hype is real. If you’re interested in lining up and waiting an hour +, Momo-Nishi (west) will be your jam. Hello Korean x Italian vibes. PS yes to the Clams Grand Lisboa, no to the Ceci. // Chelsea. 646.518.1919

2/Lilia
Because it opened this past Tuesday in an old auto body shop. Missy Robbins is back in action. With a menu consisting of delicious pastas, fish and vegetables, this is a must-do. // Williamsburg. Book now at Lilia.

3/Le Turtle
Because it’s hitmakers Taavo Somer and Carlos Quirarte’s first collab. “French New Wave health food,” is the stated genre. Aka here comes a scene for days. // LES. 646.918.7189

4/Acme
Because Chef’s Brian Loiacono is totally revamping the menu and they just had their friends and family last Thursday… Stand by for fire. // NOHO. 212.203.2121

5/Kosaka
Because Chef Yoshihiko Kousaka is offering an omakase selection based on what’s available in New York and at Tokyo’s Tsukiji fish market. The desserts, tea selection and custom-made pottery also lends itself to an amazing evening (although there might be some early service bugs to work out). // Greenwich Village. 212.727.1709

6/Bruno
Because the pizza’s are delicious, fun and picture-perfect. Also, they’re currently beta testing house-made hot dogs and custom buns. Stop in during lunch for a sneak peek. // East Village. Book now at Bruno.

7/Wildair
Because the wine list is tight and the bites are bomb and getting bomber. Have you tried the tuna bruschetta? Because you should. Again. // Lower East Side. 646.964.5624

8/Babu Ji
Because it’s the type of place you want to tell all your friends about. General Tso’s cauliflower all day. // East Village. Book now at Babu Ji.

9/Soothsayer
Because “taro tots” with Vietnamese aioli, pork floss, and basil. Seasonal Vietnamese food never looked so good. // East Village. 212.475.3171

10/Shabu Shabu
Because it’s winter and shabu always hits the spot. Who can resist a pot of boiling hot water, raw meat and fresh vegetables? WHO? // East Village. 212.477.2972.
