The June Hit List: Dame, Fulgurances, Jolene, Mockingbird, and More


We’re at 100% capacity, both indoors and out, and that signals the dawn of a new day in New York dining. It also means that, from chef-driven prix fixes to rousing residencies and top-down revamps, we’ve got more new restaurants in this roundup than there have been on the Hit List for a long while. That means, among other things, the first Italian restaurant from a legendary name in New York cooking, a new hotspot reminiscent of Paris’ neobistros and a direct import from the French capital’s neobistro scene, and even epic breakfast tacos sprouting up Brooklyn.

So what are you waiting for? Summer is quickly heating up; let the June Hit List be your guide.
